it's the mob mentality thing.
grew outta slam dancing which came from pogoing which was started by one person jumping up & down having fun & pissing people off, so nothings really changed just the mob took it over. mainly the domain of show offs & budding psychopaths.
not crap if y'like that sort of thing i guess...
the good old days are only good 'cause they're gone.

Some videos on youtube are utterly confusing to me. Why would anyone want in a band want something like this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql4qxin7p6I

(from 1:38)

to emerge in front of them, especially after what happened in Roskilde in 2000? Guy at 0:40 says 'fuck that' and jumps over the barrier. I'm with him.

The mosh pit separates the punks from the poseurs! If it's too rough for you, then maybe you'd be more comfy at a Suzanne Vega show.

You've obviously never seen the pit at a Suzanne Vega show.

About once year is plenty for me. I caught The Men this past August and had a damn good time. Lets go to the videotape.

Yeah, well different strokes. That Nomo pit looked Neanderthallic. That was their last show right?

If you are just dancing really hard, that's cool, but this is meathead bullshit.


The first 8 seconds is really all you need to watch anyway.

Crap.
I can't see the point /fun of moshpits. I don't complain if people do it, because I don't like to be the grumpy old fart "get off my lawn" kind of person there , but I enjoy watching gigs right under the stage and just handbang and enjoy the band playing but more often than not you can't just stand there in peace without being pressed, pushed, pulled, bumped HARD and continuously. Jesus it becomes annoying when you're 42. Yes I'm a grumpy old fart.
