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

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.

1. A place of great merry-making and glee. Usually accompanied by hardcore music and spurratic kicking/punching/etc.

2. A gathering of local show-goers looking for cheap plastic surgery or tooth extraction.
HARDCORExKID: Hey, what happened to Jimmy's nose?
dX KiLL U: Mosh pit.
