look up any word, like demisexual:

Apparently a term coined by scallys to describe a group of people that one used to refer to, depending on musical affiliation and degree of back-combing as jitters, metallers, goths etc. Being an exogonously applied term (by scallies), the musical affiliation is no longer critical to enable qualification as a mosher, with the result that moshers may display more catholic tastes than their counterparts of 20 years ago. A scally will identify a mosher firstly by their innocent demeanour, secondly by their friendship bands and embossed rubber bracelets and lastly by their (generally black, scruffy) clothing. Moshers' clothing is scruffy by design, even when their mums have washed and pressed them fresh that morning. Most moshers, like scallys, will display a degree of fragile self-satisfaction that diminishes upon contact with life's realities. Likely to have no recollection of being a mosher by the age of 25, the mosher is the perfect antithesis to the scally. Coincidentally, the scally's period of gestation into standard, working class nobody is the same as a mosher's into standard, middle class nobody.
If you have friends with an inflated sense of their own individuality, it is possible that they were moshers in their youth and are still growing out of it.

Moshers: feel no need to justify themselves to others,generally loving and friendly but have a tendancy to hate chavs and townies(can ya blame em?), wear the clothes they want 2 wear, not what others percieve as fashion or "cool", like badges alot. listen to a mixture of punk,rock and metal. as they name suggests they mosh to their music and have mosh pits at concerts (dnt get involved unless u r prepared to get injured). in short moshers are the coolest people on earth and i am honord to be friends with them.

A person who dresses in black/brightly coloured clothes, usually quite depressed but has a good time with friends, is very random and listens to any type of rock music.
Often found sitting around with friends laughing, joking, playing spin the bottle, and sometimes with alcohol.
Probably has a bag with many badges on declaring their favourite bands or with slogans such as "Fuck You" or "I'm here around the blow job". Generally nice people.
A group of moshers were listening to Green Day and talking.

Generally, people who dont feel the need to be branded as fashionable, even though mosher clothes are so much better than chav clothes. Moshers usually have small badges on their bags showing their favourite bands. Moshers are not un-sociable, infact they are nice people who are really cool to hang around with and chat. Can be seen in mosh-pits headbanging (do not get into one of these if you treasure your limbs) The only people they hate are chavs, i myself despise chavs and go mental everytime i see one. retford is chav infested- dont move there!!!
(chavs walk past)
mosher 1 "hey a chav"
mosher 2 "KILL THEM!!"
(chavs fucking leg it)

A mosher is some1 who likes to listen 2 many different types of metal music, always admit the truth what eva it may be, and they are really nice people and are the nicest people u could ever meet to be honest and they hate chavs to death.
A mosher is someone who minds their own business and don't go around kickin peoples head in just for how they are

One who partakes in the activity of moshing, that is to flail about madly and violently to the rhythm of music. The louder and faster the music, the better it is to mosh to.
My friends band didn't get through to the next round of Emergenza because a couple of people got black eyes in the mosh pit.Pshaw, they still enjoyed themselves didn't they?

6.
a person who listens to any type of rock music and does not tend to try and annoy others, and try to avoid chavs (scallys/_or as i call them shit heads) the scally's will try to harm moshers and will hang out on any street corner acting hard but a mosher does not feel the need to act hard(strong) because they mostly do not feel the need to fight unless provoked by a Chav.
In all a mosher is a generally nice person.^-^
i am a mosher and i act like my Definition and so do my mates and they are mosters.

not a goth, but also not a townie. usualy someone who enjoys rock or punk, butdoesn't feel the need to be "labled". sadly, when the scalys came into being, they proceded to name anyone vaguely individual that listnes to anything that isn't "bangin chowns" a "mosher" thus defeating the inviduals attemp for individuality.
Ere, look at that mosher over ther

mish mosh get a wash
