The place where a general fight at a punk concert breaks out when everyone is rocking out. The action of fighting in this manner is generally referred to as moshing.

There are different types of moshpits, including, but not limited to:
1. The kind where the huge, strong, steel-toed boot guys get in this fist fight. Unless you are a member of this group of huge, strong, steel-toed boot guys, it is advisable to stay away from these unless you want the living crap beaten out of you. A circle of unoccupied space often forms around this moshpit even within the confines of a dense crowd.

2. The kind where everyone is pushing towards the stage in order to get closer to the band. It is generally hard to breathe in these if you are under 6 feet tall or are surrounded by a bunch of very tall people. Also called a squish.

3. The kind where everyone shoves each other no matter what size or gender the participants are. Mostly everyone has their elbows out so that when they get ran into, the person shoving into them receives some sort of bruising. Often result in bruises and broken glasses, but no broken bones.
1. Mosher 1: Dude! You just got the shit beaten out of you in that mosh pit!
Mosher 2 (friend of mosher 1): I think my nose is broken.

2. Mosher 1 (over 6 ft tall): You okay down there? this mosh pit is suffocating!
Mosher 2 (under 6 ft tall): *muffled sounds of attempted speaking*

3. Mosher 2: Shit! I just got elbowed in the face!

A group of punk-rock listeners: jumping, punching, spinning, and throwing elbows as a form of expression. Performed by white, emo kids, with months of pent up rage, and the inability to actually dance
Hey, I guess Joey had to go to the hospital after he went in the mosh pit.

A drinking game created in Pelham involving one ping pong ball. The ball is thrown up at the ceiling and must bounce Into a cup, if you miss you drink a cup from the moshpit, if you make it you pick someone to drink. when you miss the ball is passed to right. The game continues like this until you only have the full cup left. When you miss you don't drink you just keep passing it till someone makes it. You cannot start the next game till the bitch cup is finished. Other rules- you cannot pick yourself to drink when you make a cup.
Bennett: Hey Johnny what do you wanna play tonight?
Johnny: let's do moshpit. The ceiling is perfect for it.

Mosh pit- real pits are found at hardcore shows. Done when a hardcore band has fast bass beats. A bunch of people at a show have an area where they hardcore dance - floor punch, spin kick, wind mill, ext. also in large groups many people link together and knock into as many people as possible. most of them are skinheads, not nescasaraly racist skinheads. It's polite to pick up a fellow mosher that has been knocked over. Metal pits are full of drunk men that fall into eachother and act like monkeys on heroin.
some hardcore moshpits are seen at the following shows- madball, agnostic front, hatebreed, sick of it all, blah blah blah.

I'd say that a moshpit is a pile (or pit) of people doing some wacked out, aggressive-filled dancing. The dancing within the moshpits moshing includes pushing, punching, kicking, jumping, and anything else that can be done physically.

It's pretty pointless to be coming out with a broken bone or something, but it's a good way to let out anger or aggression on someone you don't know!
Just watch a few videos that are at a hardcore, metal, or heavy-sounding rock band's concert, most of them (rather all of them) might include moshpits.
