Scene points are a way of measuring the coolness of someone in the alternative music scene. Scene points are usually talked about in a joking manner, such as:
- "I heard Johnny Disco went vegan, that's definite scene points right there."
- "I think I'm going to cash in my scene points for tonight and skip the show."
- "I'd get in the pit and dance, but I don't have enough scene points."
Scene points are gained by doing things that are cool or trendy among the scenesters of your local scene. They can be anything from claiming Straight Edge, going to a particular show, wearing certain clothes, or hanging out with the right people. Sounds a lot like high school doesn't it?
