There's actually no real meaning to the word mosher. It is something that chavs made up to describe anyone ages 25- that doesn't follow the mainstream of being a chav. However, as i know what is classed as a mosher, i shall pretend for a while that it does exist. A generalisation of a mosher is to wear black, baggy clothing, worship satan, slit your own wrists and want to kill all chavs. The majority of this is pure bull though. I myself am what people would call a 'mosher'. However, i am currently wearing BLUE 3/4 trousers and a WHITE T-shirt. The only black im wearing is socks and boxers! Wrist slitting really shouldnt be generalised with a specific kind of people... Many, many people do it when they are depressed... Not just kids who want to be cool, many adults who are struggling, even chavs sometimes... So saying its a scummy emo mosher thing to do is pathetic, stupid and altogether false!
The whole satanist thing is crap too.. Just because i like rock music doesn't mean i believe almight lucifer will rise... I'm not a satanist.. I actually believe in God, which is a very rare thing amongst todays youth. I don't let it effect my life though, i still swear, and often do bad things because it is fun or i just don't care...
Many people who say they are moshers also say that they twat the crap out of any chav who walks by, or they can take on a group of 10 chavs... Can they balls! Granted, chavs are soft compared to most of todays society, but that is exactly why they hang around in extremely large groups of 40+. Chavs will only pick a fight with a person on their own or a group of people that are severely outnumbered by the chavs.
I am a member of a large group of alternative friends which consists of 'moshers', emo kids, goths, skaters and rockers. There are about 38 of us altogether, but usually only about 5-15 out at a time. We don't go around randomly hospitalising chavs, because this is stupid. It is stupid because everyone would be sent down for a gang attack, and also, chavs have friends. If you take down one chav, their friends and their friends friends etc. will come looking for you. It is dangerous to fight chavs, not short term but long term. If a group of chavs (group, no single chavs have the guts to) try to start a fight with me or me and friends, I/we just ignore them, for we have a higher intellect than chavs. If someone tells you they have taken out 5 chavs, they are lying. Or at least, if they are telling the truth, you won't know them for much longer. REAL moshers only fight back when it is vital. People think that moshers are scary and look like they are out for trouble. This is ironic, however, as it is the chavs that are out looking to start fights with any randomer who walks by. Moshers are actually peace keepers.. Well, peace in violence... They are quite loud :P.
My group of friends generally just tries to stay away from chavs.. We do skateboarding, music playing (many of us play instruments), or listen to music rather loud. We only really listen to loud music when in town centres though, not in housing estates, so we don't really interrupt anyones sleep. If you want someone to have fun with and keep out of fights with and just generally be friends with, then you are looking for a mosher. Sometimes scary on the outside, mostly friendly and sweet on the inside.

Mosher: Whatever you say...

Chav: Watch yer focken mouth ya focken mop'ead! I'll get focken Tanton crew on ya if ya give me any more gob, focken goffy boy!

Moshers: ~leave to have fun by themselves, away from the chav~

Moshers are just really cool people who are slightly nutty and love to have fun. they don't care how stupid they act as long as their having fun. they like to wear baggy clothes and tops, and keep themselves covered up with not to much flesh on show, unlike tarty townies. they also dont brag about which guy they had last night or spread rumors of how bad their last boyfriend was in bed. they are really cool people who express their emotions through clothes and music
Me, im a mosher. I'd rather be a mosher than a townie ANYDAY

Dudes who like their music. Music tastes are usually rock/metal/punk and various types of thses three.....basically every type of music in the rock genre.
moshers like to jump and thrash to their favourite music thats the general idea. Usually dress in black/dark colours and sometimes really bright colours. moshers is more a general term for all types of rockers and its not true that in order to like the music you have to have the dress code.
Not all moshers are depressed and do self harm but there are some who do as there is in every social group. Moshers hate the in-bred townies, chavs and neds because they persecute them for liking music that can be played on a known instrument. moshers like to hang about with their friends and tend to be much happier with people they love, moshers shouldnt be forgotten because they are great people even though the violence of moshing seems to giv the wrong impression.
I'm a mosher and I get things shouted at me by the townies, and at school there are such thick people that don't know the real meaning of what a mosher is that they think i am a goth. So now this bastard calls me a 'moth' which is a cross between a mosher and a goth, but im a mosher through and through. The bastard I hate him. moshers will rule the world!!!

Basically moshers are the greatest people alive, they will do anything for you, like getting you out of scrapes (i.e. being ganged up on by chavs). They wont mock your clothes, they are not dirty and they love a party. they really hate chavs (cos chavs are the scum of the earth) and chavs hate them for no reason as its usually chavs who start the trouble and their always in massive groups agaist one or two people. all my friends belong to different groups and moshers have to be the most awesome, they are true friends and will never let me or anyone else down (except for chavs, who should die!!!)As you can see i really hate chavs too after i got into trouble with a load of em.

group of 15 chavs: hey theres a mosher on his own, lets beat him half to death.

mosher on his own: for fuck sake not again!

group of 8
moshers: hey look at that dude getting the shit kicked out of him by them fuckin chavs, lets help him!!

group of 15
chavs: oh shit theres some moshers, and theres more than one of em. leg it quick!!

group of 8
moshers: you alright dude?

mosher on his own: yeah, thanks for that.

group of moshers: no problem, fancy comin to a gig with us?

mosher on his own: yeah awesome.

these people tend to be quite nice people that don't really like getting into fights (but often do because of the way they look). Moshers are seen by chavs as the scum of the earth that don't get washed, don't really know what they call good music. Moshers is the universal word for anyone who doesn't dress like a chav, emos, hardcores, goths and even punks all get called moshers but there is a difference in the way they look and what music they listen to but because they are chavs they don't realise this and if someone looks even close to a mosher then they have to be one. Goths are more commonly mistaken for moshers because they wear all black and a lot of moshers wear black. Generally from my experiance moshers are okay to talk to and are very loving towards their friends and are generally very friendly people and tend to be more accepting of gay people, coloured people, etc.
mosher: what? (runs off)

Now the word mosher seem to have become a person who isnt a chav, as all little shit head chavs like to call everyone who isnt a chav a fucking mosher.
A real mosher is someone who goes down into the mosh pits at gigs ect. as this is were the word orinates from. Moshers dont have to wear a certain type of clothes and dont have to listen to a certain type of music. But they are usally into rock/metal and have ultertive life styles clothes and ways of thinking.
Chav1 "Ah look at that group of fucking moshers"
Chav2 "moshers!"
moshers "chavs"
