When ever I use the term "scenecore", I use it as a reference to bands with members who dress like scene kids or have "emo hair" and play any style of music that has to do with "core", such as "deathcore/hardcore/grindcore" or any form of metal thats flooded with terrible melodic riffs(and usually generic) in each song.

Basically my use for it is any "metal" band that has pussy highschool/college kids dressed as scene kids and try to be all "tough and sweet/cute(while dressing like like chicks or preps) " in order to attract females.
I also use it for when I see preppy bitch highschoolers attempting metal(short/shaggy hair, striped/Hollister shirts, brown shorts and DC Shoes) and every song just happens to have a hardcore breakdown(even when they are a self-proclaimed "death metal" band).

I gave an opinionated answer because I've never heard the term "scenecore" used other then when I've used it.

Deathcore is an amalgamation of two musical styles: metalcore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metalcore) and death metal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_metal). While similar to more abrasive death metal of recent years (often referred to as brutal death metal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_metal)), deathcore's aesthetics and following are more closely related to metalcore. While remaining a splinter sub-genre of metalcore, deathcore is heavily influenced by death metal in its speed, heaviness, and approach to chromatic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromatic), heavily palm muted (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_mute) riffing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riff), dissonance, and frequent key changes. The lyrics may not always be in the death metal vein, but traditional growls (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_grunt), pig-like squeals, and shrieks (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Black_metal_shriek&action=edit) predominate, with metalcore vocals only sometimes being used. Though the genre's breakdowns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakdown_%28-core%29) are attributed to a metalcore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metalcore) influence, death metal bands have long used breakdowns, as can be heard on Morta Skuld (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Morta_Skuld&action=edit)'s 1991 demo, Prolong the Agony.

And I have no idea wtf scenecore is, but hearing it, I'd make my opinion the same as RATM.

Do clothes really change the music? Then why mention them?
