HAI!! Tonight I felt spicy, so we're gonna talk about "scenecore" and "emocore" as a whole. That means the good and the bad, and not gatekeeping it all ^^ So keep it kind, and respectful of opinions! (agree to disagree if you cannot come to understanding! Since i know there is a lot of kids on here who are "scenecore" ^^)
My stance on the whole thing is.... um, I dont know what about it makes me so uncomfy but: scenecore and emocore just makes me uncomfy, because scene and emo kid culture has always been really important to me (even when I was a kid, I looked up to it.) So for Tiktok to suddenly take it into their hands and create...scenecore (mainly scenecore ill be talking about) Its weird because when you place early 2000s scene to "now" scene, its crazy diff
Like completely diff from scene from the early days,,, I do understand subcultures change and grow with the years, but this just kinda unsettles me in a weird way. Its like the whole subculture is stripped away of all its qualities and turned into a "trendy" and "quirky" tiktok thing. I've literally watched a tiktok where someone who went to goodwill saw literally so much alt/emo/scene stuff, like brand new demonias. And they said "who's alt kid died " and "probably was a poser/trender who just got bored of being alt" Which would make a lot of sense since tiktok is like,,, the breeding ground for "-core" aesthetics. Its kinda funny,,, in a sad way. Subcultures grow yes, but,,, to be nearly completely different? Like look up scenecore, please, and then look up 2007 scene kids, you'll get what I mean. Because all that pops up for "scenecore" is glitchcore edits of Ibuki and dangaronpa. With no features of scene really at all,,,? (again at least in my book, glitchcore could be the,, new scene or something, but again not in my book ^^ reminder, this isnt me telling people what is and isnt scene, just me giving my overall opinion on scenecore as a whole.)
Its like a kandi kid threw up and decided to wear that to the rave,,, eye strain out the butt. And a crap ton of hellokitty and mlp,,, which i dont judge (because I love both ) but why you gotta include hello kitty :(( she already had enough with the "hello kitty says ACAB" bull,,, Im just tired of seeing scenecore as a whole tbh, my eyes hurt looking at it, so I just avoid it at all costs. And don't get my wrong, 100 gecs have really good music, and I really like hyperpop and such. But for that to be considered scene is a long shot in my opinion :''')) -core aesthetics will always be one of those things that make me kinda question why, but whatever lmao XD Also I actually saw someone say something along the lines of "-core aesthetics are just another variant of e-kids. and I hate it" which honestly, isnt too far off tbh. And on top of that, I think its all sorta bad for subcultures.. Like scenecore kids becoming into being is cool and has helped bring scene kids into the somewhat light, but now people call scene kids "scenecore" and its so annoying XDD Like ofc not, we arent scenecore. And for subcultures like Punk and such, it can be really harmful to the movement that Punk is literally there for. Same for other subcultures, its just kinda,, idk,,, lots of pros and cons that go against each other. Not only, the scenecore community is a bit...idk, my experiences have been very toxic, so idk about yall.
ANYWAYS, feel free to respectfully comment your thoughts on it all! Again, be respectful (just in case, bc ik people can get upset when people speak their minds)
Edit: thanks for all the nice responses! I think a lot of us can agree, yeah scenecore and emocore is cool and all, but when you get down to it, it really isnt scene or emo. Scenecore and emocore are like their own thing, I think they should just call it "glitchcore" like subcultures can share things! Scene and Glitchcore people can all like kandi and monsters, its not just to one or the other. (ofc the popularity of kandi and monster energy drinks were popular bc of scene kids) For me its just hard to see the subcultures im apart of get so watered down and kinda loosing their whole meaning! People can do what they want, and dress however they want. Just don't say you're apart of subculture you aren't participating in! Cause same with Punk, if you say you're Punk, there are gonna be people who call you a poser (for many reasons obviously!) Same with emo and scene and goth even! Anyways, again tahnks for all the respectful comments!
