also known as slam dancing
is a type of dance
which involves jumping around/pushing other people/going crazy to loud "rock" or punk
music. It is very popular amongst young rock and metal fans, especially heavy
and nu metal
fans. Most participants consider it lots of fun, but it can be dangerous to people in and around the "mosh pit
", and has resulted in serious injuries and hospitalisation.
