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 pit for actual metal concerts where people kick eachothers ass to the music. Not to be confused with the following

nu-metal concerts: There is never and never has been an actual moshpit at any nu-metal show. That's actually a bunch of punks trying to rub up against eachother

Windmill/Kung-fu wannabes: When the music starts they ignorantly walk around in a circle flailing their arms like idiots trying to start shit.

Slaming into eachother: You don't go into a pit to slam into the other faggots, you go to kick the living shit out of them.

Usually moshpits are full of morons who are too drunk to even think. They only occur at metal concerts...anywhere else is just a bunch of idiots who think they are moshing.
At a slayer or cannibal corpse concert you will find out what a real mosh pit is!

A place where men with homosexual tendencies (but they are afraid to admit it) go to rub their dicks on each other, and occasionally gang rape an unsuspecting girl who happens to be standing too close to the melee.
BillyBob: "I liked that mosh pit. It made me feel all funny like when I climb the rope in gym class."

Sheep: "Bhaaaaa..."
