most 'moshers' today dont really follow this...but there are many that do as well.
they listen to puck/rock/metal anything that means something to them personally and that they can relate to. they can wear bright clothing if they want but its the music they listen to that matters to a real mosher...the clothing comes with the territory.
they are the cool people of today and shud not be forgotton anytime soon. nicknames...they stick with moshers
But in a deeper sense, a mosher is a person that is not afraid to resist conformity and express themselves.
To many, a mosher is not a person that weares Dickies and Vans, a mosher is a person that will resist the norm.
By this definition, a mosher could be a person that weares "townie" clothing, but because i am prejudice, not many townies are intelligent enough to express themselves. Anyway, even if they were they wouldn't have much to express!
More specifically, a mosher is a person who listens to any genre of music ranging from punk to metal. They are often associated with antisocial behavior as well as other behavioral disorders.
In addition, they characterize themselves with specific styles of dress which they claim to be unique, different, original, our outside of the "norm." This is regardless of the fact that their dress styles are sterotypical and faddish, demonstrate a strict conformity to the "mosher" subculture, and are completely within the cultural norm of this group.
Mosher 1 - Lets put black makup on our eyes to be rebellious and show that we don't conform to society!
Mosher 2 - Great idea! Then lets go to a mosh pit and playfight with 100 other people who are wearing the EXACT SAME black makeup! Because we're non-conformists! Hardcore!
