Please read this: What is stated below is true from experience

A "Mosher" is NOT a made up word by scallies/chavs to describe someone different, NOR is it a word to describe anyone who is a goth... A mosher is a person who is slamming into other people in the front rows of a rock/metal concert (or MOSH PIT).

The term Mosh was coined by the singer HR of Bad Brains when he introduced their song "mash it up" in his thick Jamaican accent and it came out as "Mosh It Up" instead. Anthrax, the New York speed/thrash metal band later wrote an excellent song named "Caught In A Mosh" as an ode to the fans at the front of their concert pits.

Scallies or chavs only call people they don't know "moshers" because they don't have a clue what they are talking about and the media (VERY incorrectly) defined a mosher as someone in a green day top and baggy jeans and a skateboard (?) and you know how accuarte the media is right?
<me> "I'm going to the Slayer show tonight
<friend> "Cool, you gonna be at the back or you gonna be one of the moshers in the pit?

According to the vast population of neds or chavs. The word mosher is used to describe any boy or girl that dresses in dark clothing and hangs around with their friends having a good time and generally listen to heavy metal.
A common misconception is that they are all stoners and drink blood. They tend to stay within groups of their own and avoid confrontation with neds/chavs.
They are completely different to emos and prefer not to be labelled
ned boy: oh look at those stoner moshers!
moshers: *sigh* stupid ned scum
ned boy: oi wit didya jus cal ma?!
moshers: Nothing, now please go away.
ned: I'll bate ya!
moshers: *stand up and walk away*
ned boy: Ther all gone ta drink each others blood

A person who moshes. In a mosh pit. At a gig. It's fun. Usually ends up with some kind of injury. I think that might be the point ...

''Moshers'' are very nice people.. they like to wear black and/or brightly coloured clothes! They are usually found hanging around on parks/street corners..they keep themselves to themselves and rarely get into fights but sometimes the worst comes to worst and they do retaliate..usually toward the actions of chavs. Moshers Hate Chavs. But they usually do there upmost to try and avoid these physical contacts.The music they listen to is different nd most people dont like it but it generally is good music..metal, thrash, rock are the usual types of music they like to listen to.Moshers are Mainly Found wearing baggy clothes and wearing wristbands sometimes with badges pinned to them. They do not feel the need to ''Fit in'' to the general crowd. They are there own people and proud of it.
