i see them everywhere, wondering what's next
and i think it's kind of fun seein' them walk around downtown
and they got the new band records
and they want everyone to check 'em

want everyone to see that they did it first
want everyone to know
want everyone to care
but it's fun when we don't care, so i tell them like this

oh no, oh no, here we go again
it's the life of the perfect scenester

and now they listen to emotional music
when they used to like PUNKROCK
or maybe now they like chump rock
and swore they never liked punk
and they always talk about shows
but i never see 'em
and when i do they're just bummin'
still haven't figured out that

and we just can't wait for what they got next

and they do it for the girls
yes they do it for the girls
but it's all the wrong girls in control of them
don't worry about anyone else
the best people are themselves
and we don't think you know yourself

    General CommentHopefully we have a little more time before the scenesters invade ska music...

    General CommentThis song is about all those fucking loser kids who are into music for the trendiness. Like they are into whatever is POPULAR at the moment. Thats fucking dumb, but I see them at every show. Its wicked funny too because I was at a Big D show and I saw so many trendy fucks singing to this song. I'm like wtf?! He's making fun of you! Sad thing is that most of them don't even know they are scensters.

    General CommentThis reminds me of when drive thru records used to be predominantly ska bands, and when they went pop punk, ALL the kids went from being ska kids to emo bitches. Good times.

    General Commentahh I love this damn song, because it's so true. When I saw big d a few months ago, before they played this song, the lead singer (sorry, I don't know his name) was like "We haven't played this song at a show in awhile cause kids tend to get pissed off but since you guys are fucking awesome we'll play it for you, this one's called 'Scenester'". Dude, it was fuckin awesome.

    General Commentthis, by far, is my favorite big d song.
    I'm guessing he got his inspiration from Newbury Street, because if you take one walk down there, you will see everything he describes on here, which is both sickening and painfully funny.
