Does anyone else here hate this "new" form of moshing? Where they all get in a circle and do these gay ass kicks and just beat the hell out of each other. I like the older mosh when you just kinda jumped around and slammed off one another. Now its just antohe excuse to beat someone up.

I stand up front and head bang the whole entire set

The "new" one has a name, and it's called a "circle pit". Personally, I don't get circle pits, if I wanted to run into a circle and have people shove into me while I'm running, I'd run around and through the people smoking outside.

I agree, the "circle pit" seems so fake. It's like "Ok guys, lets calm down and form a circle so we can look nuts trying to beat on eachother.."
#6
i like jumping in everyone once and a while with a spin kick to set 'em straight, then fart on their faces halo style
#7
I concur Old style is better just jumping around not intensionally hurting anyone and there is that whole code of honour in the Old Pits where you help a lad you don't even know up, out of respect, rather than kicking him because he is down.
#8
Yeah I can't stand it either. Around here we call it hate moshing, and pretty much anyone that tries to do it at a local concert loses all respect and ends up starting an actual fight. It's stupid that a lot of kids don't come to local concerts anymore, simply because they don't want to get punched in the face when they are trying to enjoy the music.
#9
yea... i dont really get hardcore dancing either.. i mean just mosh dude.. like stop dancing and mosh lol

I don't even get 'traditional' moshing. I love death metal, black metal, prog metal, doom metal, and folk metal but I just don't see the fun in running around jumping into people.

Here's how I see it.

There is no such thing as open-fist moshing.
Push-moshing is an oxymoron.

If you're talking about hardcore dancing, then that's stupid and looks retarded.

A circle pit however is nothing more than a mosh pit going around in a circle. Circle pits are fun during some songs such as the breakdown in Redneck, but most circle pits don't form unless the band calls for one.

Circle pits have been around way before moshing/slamdancing. What he's talking about is hardcore dancing.

Hardcore dancing sucks, but circle/skank pits are the best and slamdancing is fun too. No one really gets hurt with those, but once the jackasses start really getting violent that's when it sucks.
#17
i love classic moshing to metal and stuff but i listen to ska 2 so i love to skank aswell.
bass - That thing that goes bum bum bum.

yea hardcore dancing is dumb... scene kids do it

I didnt say every had to agree with me, i was just asking who did.
#21
I agree that hardcore dancing looks idiotic, but I must say, it can be alot of fun when done proper and at the right times. It pisses me off when the whole show is just people hardcore dancing

Why does it matter? Don't like it, don't do it. I hate the pointless hatred of random things, and the messages of sheer intelligence like: 'zomg scene*****s do that wtf!' that spawn from this.

what is skank and how do you do it. I should know this because I own the Circle Jerk's Group Sex.
#24
yea... but the old days of moshing were still much better... people shoudlnt change it

On the contrary, circle pits form just as much as regular mosh pits where I live. I've never actually been into the main pit, I usually either (a stand to the side a bit and mosh with a few friends or (b stand at the front and headbang.

It's a dance type of thing done to ska beats, where you swing your arms, kick your legs, and trash around. It's quite fun.

i like slam dancing, skanking, and real circle pits, the one where you run around in a circle.

in my town theres a group who put of posters that say "real circle pits go in a circle! sdee digram a" and it has a picture of people running around in a circle. cause thats what it is. The "new" from of hardcore dancing isnt exactly "new" though, just the crappy posuers think they can do it, and they suck at it.

moshing is like reall different from slam dancing and hardcore dancing o.o moshing is for metal, and slam is for hardcore.
#31
I happen to enjoy dancing at actual hardcore shows. I'm not about to show up at a metal show and try to start dancing though, thats just dumb. I didn't know you were refering to hardcore dancing though, to the threadstarter. I don't know about everywhere else, but people here don't try to hit or hurt anyone when dancing, it's really quite the opposite. I can't stand the retards that go around hitting people though, that can ruin a show.

We do have traditional mosh pits, just running into each other and what-not. That can be good fun.

No one said you had to do anything different. At most concerts there are the dancers and the moshers, and for the most part they, well at least they should, stay seperate during the concert. Besides, most people dance at hardcore shows, not metal shows.

^ Sorry I missed a couple of posts before I posted mine. I pretty much agree with everything you said, original=punk. And 2-stepping is indeed the shit
#34
Well I listen to ska so I think we all should just dance. I don't want to get hurt, I just want to skank.
#35
Hardcore dancing, if thats what you're talking about, is very different where I am, at least it seems that way. I see a lot of videos with assholes and morons not watching where they're going, but around here, people are very polite, it's probably the whole Straightedge thing.
But if you're in the pit and dickin around, pickin up change, 2-stepping, doing pile-ons, chainsaws, froggers, whatever the hell you're doing, if you fall or get hurt they'll pick you up or see if you're alright. It's all about having a good time here.
(Most hardcore dancers I know already realize what they're doing is pretty dumb, but it's fun.)

seriously.....i said it earlier....ill say it again. standing in one place and headbanging with your whole body is the best.....hands on knees...or behind body, headbang with waist
#37
haha

the best part about moshing is when not alot of people are in it and you can make a complete ass of yourself infront of people...

last weekend...me and my frineds had a chicken fiight in the middle of a hardcore breakdown...

it was fun, not gonna lie...

the new moshing it's more painfull but less fun,

circle pits happen when there's just a few people moshing, so they have a lot of space to move
