Hey everybody. I thought this would be a rad thread to start for anyone who's everyone experienced the rush of being in the pit. If you've got a mosh pit story or two, write them down here. Let's see how crazy this can get...

I've seen my fair share of things happen in a mosh pit. I've always found it funny how everybody in the pit can beat the living crap out of each other, yet we are always so curtious when someone falls over that we'll help them back up right away. It's like some sort of unspoken respect for the pit and the people that mosh. Of course the minute somebody loses a shoe, someone else is filled with an urge to pick it up and whip it across the venue. Ah, human nature is funny, isn't it?

Bloody noses, 6 inch black bruises, massive pit collapse, crowd surfing accidents, I've seen it all. What about you guys?

i've had a guy land on my friends head, then prop his foot against mine and proceed to kick off of it. That was epic

Some guy at a Hatebreed concert started pulling out piercings from his face (he had about 15) and started piercing it up right near his neck... it was disgusting. Then he randomly punched some buff looking midget and he got slammed into the ground.
Speed does some crazy **** to ya.

The whole band except the drummer came off the stage (it was a tiny room) and started moshing with all of us. The guitar and bass went outta tune, and the singer was outta breath, but it was awesome.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

I was at Behemoth and Dimmu and this one loser was hardcore moshing, flailing his limbs in semi circles like the fag he was, whacking people in the necks. Then, he ran into this guy. The guy must've been 6'7", 300 pounds. The loser whacked his arm into him by accident, which pissed this big guy off. The big guy picked up this little fag and threw him forward about 8 feet into other people. Everyone laughed.

One time I got punched in the eye while some guy was randomly spinning around with his fists out. My contact fell out and I caught it. I convinced the guy to block me while I put it back in. I got it in, he apologized and the night was awesome.

The same night I lost my shoe in a huge crowd, but found a random one with purple laces. I used it untill there was an intermission. During the intermission I made fun of the purple laces to some kids... Turns out, it was one of the kids shoes, so I had to give it back. Luckily I went into the auditorium again and looked around, someone was holding my shoe up, I got it back also.

I've never lost my shoe or been really injured, but I've been crushed by fat goth bitches plenty of times...maybe I need to go to better shows. xD I've also seen people get knocked over on a cement parking lot, lose half the skin on their arms and get back up and plunge back into the pit (this was during Hatebreed at Ozzfest last summer).

I think that fat goth bitches are potentially the worst part about going to live shows.

Speaking of the mutual respect thing the threadstarter was talking about;

I dislocated my knee in a mosh pit (**** it hurt, my kneecap was seriously as the side of my knee) but 2 dudes picked me up and carried my out while 2 other dudes cleared the way up ahead.

Didn't even know them

But now I'm really paranoid and scared of moshing... Havn't moshed since...

A friend of mine got his nose broken, so it was bleeding inside and out. And I fell over in a circle pit. Never plan on doing that again.

Like most people i've gotten my fair share of being nailed in the head by elbows. My last show which was Alexisonfire (you can all imagine how insane the crowd was), well 5 minutes in, a good part of the front push back since they were get absolutely crushed and it caused a huge ripple of people falling all over eachother. I fell on a pair of hooters...face first...

yes, she WAS fuking hot...

Lost my shoe at a Muse show, found it like 2 hours later, pretty ripped up hahah, man it was awesome, and also the whole GA was moshing, all this cold air was rushing underneath it was wicked!

At a QOTSA gig also, I was in the middle, a pit fight breaks out right behind me and some guy FREAKS out, pushes near me and like grabbed my arm, he was pinching me pretty hard, man it was crazy, I ended up having to punch him in the face cause it hurt so much, crazy bastard... About 5 minutes later, I was getting pushed together from both sides and my diaphragm was getting crushed and couldn't breathe too well... Spent the rest of the night (Smashing Pumpkins) at the back on the floor in extreme pain..!

Also, walls of deaths to local bands. "Emo's" V Metal Heads. It's great to watch, I'm an "Emo" but I totally hardcore dance in their faces and they **** off ^ ^

Pit Stories...

One time my friend went in a Banana suit and was being passed over the crowd and got dropped on his head.
Same thing happened to me 5 minutes later
He also had his shoe (A Converse Chuck Taylor) ripped off his foot

I've been punched pretty much everywhere alteast once.
One time there was some faggot running around, flailing and looking like an idiot
So my friend just leaned out and punched him straight in the face, and he went down hard

Someone tried to steal my shoe once, so I kicked them in the face.
Uhh... What Else...
Oh, And I've been used as a projectile weapon numerous times

2001, Pantera, some guy was yelling at Phil and I think he called him a hippie, so Phil ordered all the skinhads to beat the crap out of him, was pretty damn brutal.

other than that, some guy complimented me on the taste of my hair...
