>"Moshing is too dangerous"
People like this are ruining concert experiences
I was in a mosh that got too hype once and I accidently bounced right out of the mosh and elbowed some dude right in the jaw. He fell over onto the gril next to him like a human domino. Shit was cash
>tfw saw two guys at Slayer get physically restrained by two middle aged people when they tried to start a pit
>Everyone else was still
>Everyone at Rise Against was still
>The best moshes from that weekend were a 10 person mosh at a 12:15 World Inferno Friendship Society show and a crazy fucking black person mosh at Big Freedia while black chicks twerked
For such a patrician town, New Orleans sometimes turns out some shitty fucking crowds
People moshing because the music feels fucking good is awesome. People getting battered or throwing their fists around because they think it's the only way to appreciate the music is not awesome.
>buddy offers me free ticket to Warped Tour
>go because I usually end up going every year
>see ex girlfriend's boyfriend in this Chunk! No Captain Chunk! pit
>had been working out for 6 months consecutively
>demolish him and a lot of people in the pit
>have a scar on my hand that landed on his face
>get back with her a few months later
I can actually imagine that.
>Dad metal concert
>filled with 50 year old burnt out dudes that have back problems
>only young people are socially anxious 14 year olds too scared to start a mosh
Plus it was a festival set between Rise Against and Outkast. It wasn't the right crowd for it
Seeing Tim McIlrath trying to incite hell and getting blank stares was pretty sad too
>that guy at the front with his girlfriend
I never got moshing. I've tried it a handful of times but I just don't get it. I mean I go dance at electronic festivals and move with crowds at some shows but those people that straight up throw themselves around and get all bloodied and fucked and leave smiling.
Are they really that angry?
I mosh to the music. There's assholes who just move and push even when the band isn't playing. I also will pull down anyone I see trying to crowdsurf while jumping on someone else without asking.
Nobody moshes at indeh shows so stop complaining about it
I don't care if you and 100 other people all stand there with you're arms crossed for the duration of the show, because i wont be there
I guess I'm too chilled to mosh. I rarely ever get "animal energy" and it's never happened at show. I'm probably too high to do it.
There are so many people like that I've seen and I just think wow you're really the worst type of person
>Andy stott gig
>Everybody dancing like fucking lunatics, but somehow, as if by magic, manage to give each other perfect personal space.
This is the best experience at a gig. Everybody just letting go and doing what they want, with enough space to do it.
>Going to shows for the sole purpose of releasing angst and going out of your way to get in as many cheap shots on unsuspecting people as possible
Moshing isn't even a thing anymore, it's just a bunch of deathcore queers beating up preteen girls
>he's never been to a show
Yes they do. Anything with energy people will mosh too. I've moshed to O'Death, Total Slacker, Beach Fossils, Perfect Pussy, Tera Melos. Even Mac Demarco gets insane crowds.
It's not just metal you dumb fucking idiot
I've been living hear 4 years now and I don't find it that patrician. It seems like the real jazz scene is mostly dying and its instead dominated by a myriad of interchangeable brass bands
Local noise rock bands usually satisfy the urge with plenty of hype and energy.
>tfw I'll never get to mosh at a Death Grips concert
Not sure if this is even a real quote, but if it is I have a newfound respect for Gira. He's completely right, not everyone thinks moshing is the best thing ever and moshing represents a reckless loss of control that more often than not shits on the experience for others
>song still the same
I understand the feeling of being surrounded with people, u know I've been to big festivals and small shows all alike but nobody moshed at Modest Mouse just because there was a lot of energy in the crowd
>"moshing" is fun. it's all about enjoying yourself, because that's totally what I do when I listen to this band alone or in any other setting.

who hold your horses thats too extreme omg better hide your kids and get under your covers damn son
>me and friend go to Warp Tour some years back
>walking around, my friend feels a prick
>look behind us to see some really lanky emo kid
>"Now you have AIDS." he yells and runs away
>friend went to doctor, and was told he had HIV
why have you guys not dedicated your lives to seeking vengeance on this kid.
I mean obviously he is going to eventually die of AIDs (if he hasn't already) but he deserves so much worse.
like honestly you should kill everyone he loves in front of him or some shit
>Girl jumps into the mosh pit.
>Gets destroyed in like 5 seconds by some random dude that wasn't even paying attention.
>Everyone is forced to stop to let her dumb ass get out of the mosh pit.
>guy in the middle of the pit tries to do a fucking roundhouse kick or something
>slips and slams his face into the ground
>Went to see Yung Lean
>People were moshing
>Moshing to fucking Yung Lean
>tfw was in a yung lean "mosh pit"
>tfw injured a fuckload of tumblr kids
>mfw i go to hardcore shows in the DMV area which get bloody 90% of the time
>mfw friend goaded me into going to a yung lean show in DC
>mfw kids getting picked up/dropped off by parents
>mfw some bitch had a fucking siezure
>mfw that pathetic mosh pit
those fucking people would get killed at a proper mosh pit
I have no problem with moshing, dancing, stage diving, or anything else. I just see it as an issue if people are using it as an excuse to intentionally harm someone and try to pass it off as moshing, or when the musics inappropriate for it.
man FUCK moshers. dumbest fucking thing in the world
>mfw one time I tripped a fat boy wearing a cannibal corpse shirt in the pit and he fell down and smashed his face into the floor and broke his glasses
also fuck stage divers.
>mfw some fat girl tried stage diving and managed to get some losers to catch her at first but as she was making her way toward me so I stuck my hands up to support her back but then let her fall and she ate shit on the beer-soaked cement floor
every time I think about those incidences it never fails to make me giggle like a madman
if you attempt to do any of these gaytarded things at a show I'm at then I will go out of my way to make sure something like this happens to you too
