Mosh Pits


I am an avid concert goer. Well, I have been over the years. Lately, not so much, I’m not too sure why. Anyway, on occasion one may find me at a hard rocking concert where quality mosh pits may be found. I will typically participate in said mosh pits. I find they are a great way to release any stress or frustration that I may have at the time. They’re also just plain fun.

Certain bands have great songs to get people going in the pits. The best bands I’ve seen live for the pits that come to mind are Disturbed, Stone Temple Pilots (yeah, surprised me too), Godsmack, Nine Inch Nails, and Saliva (not so much a fan, but saw them at a festival). I’ve also been to some concerts that are more punk type of music, which is good sometimes, but no good for mosh pits. I think it’s mostly due to the fans that those concerts attract. The hard rock and metal has bigger, more physical fans. Typically punk music has more scronny fans, so their pits end up being those circles of weaklings jumping up and down; no good.

The whole reason I’m posting this is because I found a kind of funny page. It’s all about how to mosh in a mosh pit. The author of the article did a great job actually, I was impressed. If you’ve ever wondered what mosh pits are like, give it a read. Then find your nearest metal show, buy tickets, and go tear it up! I had thought of going to a Static-X concert in Vegas tonight, but I kind of lost interest.
