A mosher is usually someone who due to having no friends as a child at school (usually around the age of 13) Decides the only way an outcast like themselves will ever have any social interaction will be to suddenly declare they are sooooooo individual and join the other 50 lonely outcasts in the school by wearing daft baggy clothes and listening to American rock bands that are soooooo individual. These bands are so individual in fact that they sell millions of copies around the world. Very individual I’m sure you agree.
By joining this individual group the "mosher" then finds themselves with the chance at a social life, all be it with other outcasts.
When in a group they like to fantasise about beating up "chavs and "townies” They do this sometimes to let off the steam and pain of having been forced to exist as a freak solely to get friendship from other freaks.
“Moshers” sometimes like to go on websites and say how much they hate chavs and would beat one up if they had a chance. But in reality usually have been bullied and beaten by chavs their whole entire lives and would run the next time they saw one. They get so angry about this fact they often set up websites such as chavscum to rant about it, while usually the chavs they rant about have much more interesting things to do than sit around making websites to say how much they hate other people.
The mosher was sitting and quivering fearing his next beating at the hand of the local popular kids.

The mosher finally hit 21 and decided to become normal and cut his hair seems as the hell of his school life was over

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.

A cultural phenomenon in the UK (and else where?). Mosher is a term used in mass terms (main by opposing stereotypical youth, the Kev, or Scally) to stereotype any youth who listens to any type of rock music, that doesn’t get played on pop radio (though ironically most Mosher bands are on major labels), and abides to a certain dress sense. In reality this isn’t a far comment, as a Mosher is somewhat frowned upon in many of the scenes that get put under the same brush: such as the Hardcore, and Metal scenes. Today the Mosher is some what of a dying breed with the new cultural phenomenon (okay, trend) Emo has taken its place and most of the “Moshers” with it. Though, there is a borderline where Emo and Mosher meet, however this is usually to do more with wealth than anything else (with “Fashioncore” clothes and accessories costing more than some can afford). Moshers tend to feel as though they need to set themselves apart from the crowd and often at outrageously, and wear black and baggy clothing, though it must be said that most fail and look as generic as those they moan about. Whereas Kevs are regarded as socialising near there homes, at parks and on street corners, Moshers tend to hang more in city centres around shopping centres and such, thus the term Mallgoth.

Music: Read Kerrang what’s hot in that’ll be a good clue.

Dress sense: None… Sorry, Black baggy jeans (DDs) and black baggy band shirts, usually poorly printed (ironed!) on as they’ve been bought somewhere like afflecks palace (aptly called Mosher Palace by some random stranger I meet on a bus once). Badges on their groovy bag, for some reason they can’t have backpacks. :s poorly applied make up, usually black this is probably to make them look evil and accounts for both genders.

Personality traits: varied, though often seen as moody, and use of Americanisms even though they are British.

There are differences between Moshers and… True Metalhead (all types, art, BM, DM, etc), Real Hardcore (again all styles UKHC, NYHC, etc…), Indie (I don’t even see how they get called Moshers!), and Emos (though Emo is IMO Moshers pretty sister)… So don’t fucking call me one!.. Or any who isn’t.
Mosher: hey look at me, man, I’m different and really heavy!!! GGEEERRRRR.
Me: Oh.
Mosher: What you listening to, dude?
Me: Tribes of Neurot .
Mosher: oh, cool dude, real heavy, awesome man.
Me: No, not at all.
Mosher: Oh, got something heavy..? Can I listen?
Me: Okay… Nile good enough for you.
Mosher: Never heard of them!?! Bet they’re no where near as heavy as Slipknot, Slipknot are the heaviest band in the world… Anything heavier you’d die… They are really heavy Death Metal
Me: *Tuts*… Just listen or fuck off.
*passes earphones and presses play*
Mosher: …
*The Mosher falls to the floor and starts to die*
Me: Someone should really phone this geek an ambulance.

a mosher is a person who likes to listen to music such as cradle of filth and slipknot. the 3 main features of a mosher are these;
1.greasy skin clothes (possibly with badges or some other garbage on them).
3.the loud horrible music (if you can call it music) blasting out of thier mp3 players.

a moshers main rival is the chav. moshers likes to say things behind chavs back, but wont say a word to thier faces. a truly pathetic mosher will be in his/her early 20s that still hang armound with the 12 to 16 year olds grease balls *ahem* moshers. anouther feature of a mosher is that they like to jump around alot and most of them are just the school outcasts looking for something to rebel againt. anyway moshers should be avoided at all costs they may bite and many of them have head lice and crabs from thier dogs.
mosher1:have you downloaded the new slipknot song yet?
mosher2:i can use my typing hand anymore ive slashed my wrists too many times.
mosher1:i love the devil rock ooooooonnnnn!!!!
