The Point of a pit is to maximise the enjoyment of people on the floor, im a punkrocker but i am sure all the pits are the same, you go there to get drunk and dance around to the music you love, the slam dancing is from the 70's, 80's Hardcore/punk scene which they used to belt the **** out of each other for no reason, that still happens but its not as much contact these days. If you got involved in the pit then you will feel a amazing atmosphere that you couldn't (cant) get from just standing around.

Try it.

I like getting in the pit always have and always will. Sure I tend to get a lil black and blue, but I love rocking out to the music at show's. Being only 5'1 I'm NO match for some of the slam dancers that go to a few of the shows. But I can hold my own... I'm not gonna pay for live music only to sit there like a old lady. I guess it just depends on each person, but being around music all my life just sitting there seems pointless.

You should see the bruises I got from the Vandals, V.G.S show

Perhaps, Kids in the pit these days can get pretty stupid. But then again I was jumped by 5 Skin Byrds just cos I had a "Unity" butt flap patch so kids in the scene back then were pretty stupid.. either way no matter what you'll always run in to stupid people.. I really don't like people..

They do it because that's what makes them happy man. If standing there makes you happy then by all means stand there. Moshing makes me happy so that's what I do. When I'm pumped up I'm going to go crazy! I agree with what a previous person wrote. It's more fun when you're standing on stage playing and everyone is going nuts than it is to just see a bunch of people standing there. When people stand there it makes me feel like I'm in church and I don't want any of that bullshit at a metal show. If I play a show I want you to rock the f*ck out, not stand there and **** because too many people are running into you. Go see Bring Me The Horizon once and let me know how your standing still works for you.

a mosh pit is fun .. if done right no one gets hurt .. like .. circle pits .. everyone runs around in a circle .. you get out some energy that high energy music puts in you .. or a little shoulder bumping and pushing .. ..

it's the way people "dance" to hardcore that i basically run away from ... who'se dumb idea was it to pretend your the karate kid fighting an invisible ninja .. it's just being an a$$.. i've seen people get broken noses just trying to enjoy a concert .. and that is not right

Well I would say that your perception of concert enjoyment is distorted in my opinion.

No, I consider the idea of going to a concert solely to watch the band the equivalent to watching someone work. At least to the point of thinking you're going to lose something in the experience by moshing.


Are you serious? At most I lose a safety pin or button.. The pit is the best place to be at a good show..
