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"

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!"

1. Types of mosh pit, other than 'regular' mosh, include the 'Wall of Death,' in which the moshers (see below) are divided into two moshes (see below) which then run directly at each other head on, causing the moshers in the front row(s) of each mosh to become crushed by the pressure of the enclosing moshers behind and before them, or the moshers are arranged into a ring of death and then run into the middle causing the circle to close and the inner row(s) of moshers to be crushed by the pressure of the enclosing moshers behind and before them. Many bands choose to only use Wall of Deaths once per gig, as doing it more times causes them to lose too many fans.
2. i was in a mosh the other day, twas awesome
3. rocker: (charging toward other person) MOSH!!!
other person: (being moshed) AAARGH!!!
