Mosh Pits

Anyone here ever had to deal with these pieces of shit?

Here's my only mosh experience... I was at a 100,000 person music festival in California this past April and a metal band that I didn't know much about was coming up and I didn't know to get the hell out where I was in the crowd. Got caught in the mosh, couldn't move and could hardly breathe. It was a total nightmare, yet I look around and some people are smiling? Little girls even, smiling. I guess I understand how some people enjoy just getting shoved around and going fucking crazy, but personally, I didn't receive any enjoyment from it. Ended up crowd-surfing out of it after about 30 minutes. Anyone else been in a mosh? Is there something to be said for mosh pits? Am I a wimp?

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: Mosh Pits

Buddy of mine loves them, he got punched in the face once and started bleeding but continued on flipping out anyway.
Personally I've never been caught in one though.

Re: Mosh Pits

Mosh pits kick ass ! Especially the ones by Rage Against The Machine,Sepultura and System of a Down
It can be very rough at times but people always help others when they fall ( in europe anyway)and it's not as brutal as it seems from the outside(i think haha). But there was one time when i had a bleeding nose...but personally love them

Can't stop running...

Unless I'm injured

Re: Mosh Pits

Mosh pits are sooooo 2001!
Have wonderful memories of them though. Especially when my then-boyfriend got hit with a boot above his eyebrown, ending up with blood all running over his face. Main comments: "cool, man!" "metaaaaaalllll!!!"
(I took him to the emergency to have him stiched up for a bit though. )

Here's the modern version: The Wall of Death!
This is how it works: the entire crowd splits up in two lines, and at a certain sign, run into each other. It's awesome.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Mosh Pits

edge of the moshpit is the best view possible at a gig. big open space in front of you., obviously you just have to be on your guard.

I never went in, just stayed on the outer fringe of it. you get to experience the energy without all the broken ribs and boot prints on your face
