Back in the 80's hardcore crossed with metal and moshpits began to happen at metal concerts aswell as hardcore punk concerts. Initially a mosher was anyone who listened to metal/metalcore/hardcore/grindcore ect, and obviously moshed. In england after the "nu wave" of metal (american nu metal not the NWOBHM) a mosher became a derogatory reference to anybody who broke social trends such as, indie's, alternatives, metalheads, goths, punks, emo's, scenesters's ect. Many people now associate a mosher as someone who listents to alot of nu-metal (slipknot, linkin park, adema, spineshank) and the general clothing consists of baggy jeans, skate shoes, plain t-shirts and a band hoodie, but the modern day moshers barley exist today.

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!!!

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.

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?

moshers are some of the most friendlyest people ever, they speak and they mean no harm unless they come across chav scum,
most people think moshers are mainly boys,but hell no.
at gigs they love to be at the front head banging/moshing.
normally baggy clothes and long ish hair.

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?
