The term mosher comes from one that partakes in a mosh pit (the front of a concert a bit of pushing and shoving/dancing)
When this word started out, it was those people that liked there Rave music and it people who had long hair and liked Nirvana was branded as a mosha. Back then (1992-1998)Anyone who was branded a mosha was a minority and Ravers were the majority. This sort of battle has been going for years. Watch Quadrophinia - Mods & Rockers.
However, the younger generation (that were born after 1983) think it is a great word for someone who likes "Nu Metal" And go around calling people fake moshas (or as the spelling was originally "Moshers".
"Oi ya fookin' mosha, cut ya hair!"
(adj) Anyone in the world who is not wearing white branded clothing and listening to large American black men rapping about how many hos they shot last week because they lost their bling.
"Mosha": "Excuse me?"
Townie: "yeah weve seen ya ya fukin freak, get a fukin aircut"
"Mosha": "Sorry, but what business is it of yours how long my hair is, and where did you learn to speak like that at six years old?"
Townie: "fuk u u fukin gayboy"
moshas aren't dirty tramp-like people as most people here seem to think. *rolls eyes at the scallies that obviously wrote these definitions*
Let's set this straight. Moshas are easy-going people who dress how they want to and don't follow all ur gay fashions. They do wash their hair and change their clothes *gasps in surprise* and dammit, they even take baths like normal people! All groups of people have their exceptions, like grebs are decent people, but you still get your weirdos that want to punch your lights out for looking at them weird. (not dissin grebs, just an example) Most moshas hate townies (for good reason) and come to that, most townies hate moshas (for no good reason other than they don't get off with their mums). Most of you also seem to think that the don't listen to "real rock". Most of the moshas I know like bands such as:
- Led Zeppelin
- Iron maiden
- Nirvana (okies, not technically rock but you get the idea)
- and those of you from Royston SOCKET!(had to be said)
So moshas aren't as bad as most of you seem to think, they are normal people that just happen to like to mosh and have a good time at rock concerts.
Scally~ Oi! you dirty mosha! U startin on me?
Mosha~ *walks away*
Scally~ when you last have a bath u filthy moshface! (actually heard someone call a mosha that :S)
Mosha~ *is a long way away by now and can't hear the pathetic insults that are COMPLETELY not true*
A label given to anyone who belongs to a sub culture of rock by chavs:
"Mosha's" are often seen as dirty, rude, gay/bi, an apparently their mum's get fucked reguarly by chavs, these are not true, most "mosha's" are not like this, and people who take pride in the sub culture they belive/follow will not call themselfs "mosha's" usually they are punks, goths, cyber goths, skinheads, indies, skaters or some bmx'ers which are proud to follow that exact subculture and do not want to be labled as a "mosha" often "mosha's" do not find the name offensive and it sounds rather silly.
chav: oi u fuckin mosha give me yer fuckin money

chav: yer what m8 im gonna bang ya
"mosha": bang me with no lube? and im not your "m8"
chav: *confused look* yer fuckin mosha, arrrrrrrrrr i fucked yer mum

Uber amazing people, with a very GOOD fashion sense and a chilled out sense of humor :) They can come in many shapes and sizes, the majority hate townies, except people like me who don't really care and can't be bothered to waste energy on usless battles.
Contrary to popular belife, moshas' do wash and can cut their hair (sometimes they even spike and dye it! WOW!!)They also wash their clothes and change them on a regular basis, tehy also change their underwear wash themselves and comb their hair, and also brush their teeth!! Suprised? Don't be :-p.
: Oi you, dickhead! Fucking spliff smoking moshhead, you starting? Go home an get a fuckin wash u fuckin cunt!
Mosha:**thinks is moshhead meant to insult me? i am a mosha after all** Ummm right, bye
an enemy of a scally
. never get along. a mosha is a lot easyier to understand and talk to. will no pretned to be 'ard'. they have a great taste in music with contains bands like nirvana, red hot chili peppers, blink 182, greenday and many more great bands. they usually wear black hoods (usually with the design of a particular band they like) baggie jeans and sometimes chains. they can have long hair or short hair. like to be left alone and kept to themselves.
scally: oi u long aired twat
mosha: shut the fuck up u fat bastard.
scally: u startin? im gonna batta ya
mosha plants flag through scallys head!
A word defining an individual, slightly ironic I know. Chavs will try to use this as an insult, but in the long run won't insult anyone.
This could also mean someone who moshes.
Chav: U dirty fukkin' mosha. I'll fukin kill ya'
Mosha: *ignoring chav because he/she has better things to do with their time than insult someone over what they wear*
Personaly i think 'moshers' are scallys
main targets, because they are jealous. Think about it, moshers are always having fun, we dont have any worries about getting our clothes dirty, or wet, so we are alot more flexible to hang out anywhere. We do not use violence to sort everything out, and when we see each other around, we dont just wave or put up our thumbs ... instead moshers will run up to their friends and hug them all, therefore showing more love and caring, whether they are male or female. another thing is that moshers are not scared to explore their sexuality, or even admit to it if it is 'different'.
scally:eeeeee ya mosha!!!
scally:get a wash!!
mosha:how original *walks away*
scally:see ya fag u walk away
