guy two: yeah it was amazing right?
guy one: yeah, did you see that idiot who was in a moshpit on his own?
guy two: yeah, pointless really. The band laughed at him and called it a marshpit!
The name is taken from "martial arts" and "mosh pit." In actuality, a circle of violent individuals trained to fight, beating each other down to the rhythm of screaming metal. Otherwise known as "Stay the fuck out if you can't handle pain."
