3OH!3 surfaced from the depths of late-2000s hell at this year’s DemonFest. Since then, NSU students have relapsed into their scene phases.
“This has been a long time coming,” StarFyrr Fontenot said. “I’ve been waiting for an excuse to dye chunks of my hair again for ages.”
Students, clad in black with brightly colored hair, were seen forming a mosh pit in Prather while 3OH!3 performed their hits (?), including “Don’t Trust Me” and “My First Kiss.”
“I’m glad NSU is finally doing more to recognize the scene community here on campus,” a student known only as Onykx said. “We’ve been feeling really neglected lately. I mean, they had Wale last year? Come on!”
Even though it has been a few days since 3OH!3’s performance, NSU students don’t plan on shaking off their scene phases any time soon. Students were spotted outside a creative writing class eagerly waiting to read their poetry, which was heavily inspired by the work of Mayday Parade; they weren’t even enrolled in the class.
“Seeing 3OH!3 has really made me remember the good ole days,” Vanity K1ll$ said. “You know, back when music really meant something.”
NSU scene kids have always been on the fringe of the campus community, and they are thrilled new members are joining their ranks.
“Scene kids have a bad reputation for being exclusive, but, like, we can’t help it if nobody else really gets us,” K1ll$ said. “Anyway, it’s cool that more people are embracing their scene side.”
“I don’t know, man,” a former clean-cut student said. “Something about the rawr XD lifestyle has always spoken to me. I was a little nervous about making this lifestyle change, but 3OH!3 really inspired me to be myself. Their song ‘I Can Do Anything’ really helped me.”
