A rocker dance! Shove, push, bang, jump, fall, and pick yourself up! This is usually done on a large area in front of the stage called the pit/moshpit.
An awesome way to express yourself at a metal/hardrock/punk gig/concert/show. You don't really see this happening in concerts for Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, etc, but more towards Avenged Sevenfold, Napalm Death, etc. You get the drift. People mistake moshing as jumping/pogoing, but that is not the case. You can get your ass kicked in moshing, but the hell with that, danger is part of the fun! You got people all around you to bounce back on your feet from. THATS moshing; letting the music control your body as the audience move like energetic molecules of a gas, bouncing off each other.
"Damn, we moshed so hard to the concert extra crew members had to stand out to hold the barriers in place!"

a term first coined by Vinnie Stigma to define the aggressive form of dancing first encountered on the NYHC (New York Hardcore) scene in the early 80's, which is still prevalent amongst the hXc scene today and has shit all to do with the majority of two-day faker hair-do scum-fucks out there claiming to either do, play or advocate it right now
"that emo scum fuck didn't know what hit him when he got caught in that Madball mosh pit dude"

a large group of people usually containing an obnoxious, fat guy with a mohawk and a BAC of 1.5%, a few rude kids, one or two jack asses, some hardcore chicks, some helpless guy who got shoved in by his friends, and a handful of ridiculously overenthusiastic middle schoolers. Also, y'know, actual fans of the music trying to listen and dance and have a good time, but getting beaten and bruised and pushed around by the aforementioned shit-heads.

Moshes can be fun at a good punk show, or a hard core show, when appreciating is not the highest priority, but having fun and beating people you don't like without the consequences of an assault charge are. But anywhere else, there should be a circle pit, and a less packed area to groove in.
ex 1:
taylor: "fuck this shit! you're not supposed to mosh at ska shows! where's the circlepit?"
karli: "oh they'll start one, and we'll still get pummeled"
taylor: "STUPID FUCKEN HARDCORE KIDS!"

ex 2:
nick: "dude, check out my battle wounds from that sweet mosh"
conor: "yea man! i've got a black eye! fuck was that music pump me up!"
