Your Scene Sucks: Know Your Stereotype Styles [35 Images]

So how do you dress? I mean, do you have a strict style that you always go for? Lord knows there are a ton of different styles out there, and for some people, it’s hard picking one since it comes with a whole lifestyle most of the time. It’s not too uncommon either that people switch styles every now and then when they have grown tired of the one they have been into for a while. Obviously there wouldn’t be any radical changes, or so I don’t think, but there are certainly styles that are connected which you could easily jump between. The thing is though that most of us have no idea what styles are out there. Sure, we have the regular ones, and we certainly know about geeks and nerds, but there are a lot of them out there I tell you.

Just have a peek at these. This ultimate listing of styles, created by Rob Dobi, is called Your Scene Sucks. It delivers one of the most extensive series of styles I have ever seen. It has pretty much everything, at least the ones that are popular today. Sure, there is an ’80s style missing and definitely a ’70s, but those aren’t exactly popular today. And by the looks of it, Rob adds new styles continuously so maybe we’ll see these eventually. The ’80s one is in a way popular, but compared to these others, I don’t think it would measure up well when it comes to popularity.

Now the only thing you have to do is settle for one I guess. Which style is closest to your heart? Which one of these styles do you identify yourself with the most? For me, I would have to pick a couple actually in order to be able to pick at all. I mean, this list is insane if you look at the number of styles represented in it. The explanation for each one certainly helps to narrow down the ones I would choose. I urge you to go to Rob’s website for even more in depth information about each style. It’s badass! But then again, the interesting part is how people perceive you just because they have a certain style. It’s the stereotype part of our brain that gets all oiled up and starts to chuck away I guess.

    This is an outstanding collection of subspecies types! In travels and varies places to which ‘I hung my hat’ I have been observant to most of these types in their habitats. So for any one looking to see these, i suggest start with New Orleans and Salt Lake City. You may have to move your search into the Pac NW afterwards…

      It’s like saying Metal Gear Solid bandana instead of Solid Snake bandana. If you are familiar with the Zelda franchise you know it is implicit of Link.

    but it’s all white people…
    Other than the hot topic guy who kinda looks like an incredibly light skinned latino, it’s all pretty much white scene culture. I mean, I get not wanting to rock the boat with racially charged stereotypes but it’s a little racist by leaving them out as well. So, because of that, I wouldn’t call it “one of the most extensive series of styles I have ever seen.”
    However, It’s still kinda funny in a total hater kind of way.

      It would only be racist if you displayed a single race as only having one single style… that’s where the issue would come into play.

    • comment-avatar

      Would you rather have them include one black person, one asian person, one mexican person, etc…just so it’s not “racist”? That sounds even more racist, as someone said, it would be confining them to one stereotype. In that sense, they all deserve their own article. Maybe you should be the one to do it since you don’t want to see anyone excluded…

    Ha! That pussy metalcore kid (a.k.a. “brootal kid”) would never have a death metal belt (Cannibal Corpse). Maybe some kid band with 4679 jumpy “breakdowns” on the open top string per song and whiny screamo vocals, yes. But death metal? Really??

    • comment-avatar

      Actually, he kind of would. The “br00tal” kids always have one or two real death metal band things like Cannibal Corpse to prove they are “legit” or whatever.

    What are these? Are these supposed to be a particular subculture? Because I don’t know anyone who dresses like any of these, and I’ve never heard of the majority of them. Where the one of a girl wearing J Crew or other more mainstream styles?

      Stereotypes aren’t designed to “hit the mark”, a stereotype is an innacurate generalization based on an anecdotal experience. This was meant to be humorous and taken with a grain of salt.

    Funny and not so little thing this is, no doubt… Just a pity when many of these styles appeared not simply for fun but created by bored people who came up with something new while trying to escape the mainstream. But there is always capitalism around which turns whatever it is into a marketing gag and a consumer product. Just wonder why there aren´t really new subcultures poppin´ up these days when this should be the most reasonable time to see that happen. Crazy world, the youngsters just consume and keep themselves inside the consumers role frame, next to no attempt to live outside it. But maybe I´m just an nostalgic and pathetic old fart which happens to be lucky enough to not being young today. The 80´s were so boring that we really hooked up on whatever was outside mainstream. A creative time when underground was still a meaningful phrase and not one of many labels. Oh, and I was born far away from northern America and I only get to know the US as a tourist twice. Still there is a common ground. Funny to see how small this world is in fact, we´re so different and still pretty much all the same at the end.

    I think these are solely based heavily in America. So before you start hating on this post remember that other countries have other stereotypes. Even within America different states have different subcultures, just as we do here in Australia.

    I love that the negative comments are so predictably hipster. One of the defining characteristics of many hipsters is that they have no sense of humor about themselves. They are offended at the idea that they, like everybody else, are pretty predictable. People are cultural. We try to fit in with people who like the same things and this often has hilarious results.
