A dangerous genre of dancing related to heavy metal/rock music. Usually done in crowded areas by pushing, shoving and jumping. The denser frontal part of a concert gig will usually have the crazier stunts such as trampling and crowd surfing.
Moron: I tried to crowd surf but I was trampled and got a concussion.

Moron 2: Idiot.

A dancing style closely associated with heavy/rock music. When people mosh they often knock into other people and move their head in time to the music. A group of people all moshing is called a mosh pit.
The people were all moshing to the music.

Everyone joined in the mosh pit.

pple mosh to heavyish music that has a good storng beat.moshing involves body-slaming and shoving others into the middle of the group of pple.the best moshers are usually tall broad guys as they can be shoved by other tall broad guys without being sent flying.to see the best capture of moshing on tape watch the video to the song'Smells like teen spirit' by 'Nirvana'.watch the audience when there standing.the roughest part is actuall moshing. moshing sounds like a dangous and pointless activity but it is actually amazing for the pple in the moshpit.dont knock it till youve tried it
watch the music videos and go to a Bullet for my Valintine consert and you will get the idea
