I do not doubt how true this is. Whenever I'm at gigs and somebody falls in a Mosh Pit then people closest help get him up. It might look rough and sore, which it is, I myself broke my nose in a Mosh Pit but at the end of the day they still care about the people they're moshing with and don't want any serious harm to come to them.

Well, if they don't help the person up, they might get crushed. If someone dies at a concert that's horrible rep for the band. It's in your best interest to be nice to people if you want the best for the band you love.

I'm not one to brag, but once I saw a guy beating a woman and I looked at him with a disapproving face from my window.

metal heads might be crazy. But we know what the right thing to do is, and we never hesitate to do it.

I remember the first time actually seeing a moshpit in person, I had no idea what it was.

I was in this big club where underground bands played, and I was just enjoying the music standing near the scene, when suddenly people around me were bumping into me, and I was waving around with no control of what was happening (I'm 5'1"/155 cm), until a bald woman with abnormally large gauges just grabbed me from the crowd in the split of a second to the corner of the scene behind the speakers and wrapped her arms around me and stroked my hair for a solid minute before letting me go.
Never forgot. Wish there were more people like her.

I was taking My little brother to his first gig, and we got separated in the pit. I found him being knocked about by some 17 year old. My brother was 15 and I was 20 at the time. I may have overreacted a little.

What do you think? I dragged him off my brother, notified him he'd done ****** up and proceeded to whale on him until his children should be feeling it. Then just to be sure, I helped my brother dump him in a bin. Always dispose of trash sensibly.

My friend went to a Linkin Park concert. When they play Faint (one of their more badass songs) a mosh pit began to form. Three ass holes decided to grab my friend and kick the **** out of him. He said he could feel the crowd move as most of the mosh proceeded to wreck those three asshats. They even lined them up so my buddy could get his shots in.

one of my favorite moments in life happened at a metal show. I was at Sonisphere UK (2011 i think) and Slipknot were performing, near the end of the show they brought out a boiler suit, bass guitar and mask in honor of Paul Gray who died the year before and we all had a minute silence. I watched the stage and saw Joey Jordison hug the suit and shudder (he was clearly crying) suddenly behind me i felt someone pushing down on my shoulder, it was a man crowd surfing wooting and yelling **** yeah DURING A ******* MINUTE SILENCE! i looked over to the guy on the right to me we caught each others eyes and new exactly what to do. we grabbed that ******* collar and slammed him to the floor and he promptly stumbled off, he was either being idiotic or just showing his support either way you do not do this kind of thing during a moment of silence


tldr i slammed someone to the ground for disrespecting someone during their memorial show.

I'm a Slipknot fan for a looooong time (since self titled), and memory of Paul is something very important to me.
You are a good man, and i wish you all the best in your life.

I remember at an A7X concert some guys pushed these two smaller girls into the mosh pit. Me and my buddy got the girls out, and then for the rest of the show had a personal vendetta to push those guys into the pit, and beat the living **** out of them.

It is people like that that **** up everything.

Oh damn dude. When I saw them play so far away at the woodlands pavilion, that is when I knew they were my favorite band.

Your friend has a rare thing there.

He's always had the luck of the Devil. He also found Matt Heafy's pic, which he gave to me. I gave it to my brother when he started getting better than me at guitar, and he instantly dropped it in his acoustic. took him 15 minutes to get it out again.
User avatar #301 to #299 - exarzero (05/09/2013) [-]
haha, little bros. That is pretty cool on you though. Don't let your friend lose those sticks!
User avatar #303 to #301 - badgerbaiting (05/09/2013) [-]
He's a drummer himself, so I doubt he will.

Glad to hear it. Rev will be missed.

He certainly is. Awesome drummer, lovely bloke.

Last time I've ever been in a moshpit was when I started one at a Soulfly concert (well, it was the opening band -can't remember the name, Max Cavalera's son Richie was the vocalist, though-), even though soon afterwards I caught an elbow to the eye.
Curiously, though, no swelling occurred, but my left eye kept watering the rest of the night and all the day afterwards.
Regardless, after I got hit I just resumed to singing and headbanging once Soulfly were on stage, I didn't really want to miss any moment they were on stage.

Since then I didn't really care anymore about pogo or moshpits, I realized I really wanna ******* see the band playing and headbang to their songs. Hey, each his own, right?

Funny memory, though: at Sonisphere 2010, when the Big Four came, I was pretty close to front row when Slayer performed. Behind me, to the left and right, there were at least 2 (albeit small) moshpits started; next to me was a rather small dude (I'm 1.80, he was something like 1.65) that looked like a foreigner that was trying to start a pit right where I was, being a bit oblivious that the front row peeps didn't really have an interest.
So I tap him on the shoulder, smile at him and point towards one of the pits behind me, that he didn't notice. Little ****** rushed off to them like ************* Speedy Gonzales.

I love when juggalos show up at a hardcore show and get the **** stomped out of them by big straightedge ************* and once the girls are done kicking their asses their boyfriends pin them to the wall and let the scene kids take their shots.

Holy **** , I thought this whole post was about metal people being friendly people. Now you start acting tough about how people from another social scene are brutally beaten... I've been to a lot of metal shows w my short hair, button shirt and not one tattoo, and have never gotten the **** kicked out of me.
#304 to #214 - Womens Study Major (05/09/2013) [-]
The reason why they are brutally beaten is because they brutally beat other metal fans. Juggalos are literally the worst people at concerts that's why fans come together to beat those douchebags. A little information goes a long way.

Actually, I am a girl who has been to multiple psychopathic concerts and I've never been treated badly. In fact, my very first concert (that I can remember) was when I was fourteen years old and it was an ICP concert....guess who didn't get beat up or raped despite being a 5'2, 115 lb easy target? Yeah......I even got to go up front because I told a big guy that it was my first concert and he pushed people out of the way for me so that I could see better, being short. So guess what, **** you!

You won't believe how nice metalheads in the pit actually are.
#238 - twitchyseagull (05/09/2013) [-]
It's actually really true. been in some of the craziest mosh pits (metallica, System of a down, slayer and blink 182) and all the people are just very kind and respectful.

mfw the girl wearing really short shorts surfed out of the mosh pit in front of me had a really hairy arse.

I never expected a mosh pit from a Blink crowd
User avatar #270 to #238 - happypancake (05/09/2013) [-]
Huh. I've always had to come to terms that, as a female, I will never be able to crowdsurf (one of my life ambitions) for fear of being horribly groped
I suppose it's true but I have to remind myself that the person who said that was my boyfriend at the time

**** it, still going to do it one day. Not going to let my gender get in the way of having a good time (but I really don't think I'd wear shorts, that ****** stupid)
User avatar #284 to #270 - homicidalherpes (05/09/2013) [-]
It doesn't matter what gender you are, you'll always get horribly groped while crowd surfing. It just kind of happens while you're being pushed along.
User avatar #433 to #284 - happypancake (05/11/2013) [-]
Hm, true. I suppose that's how crowd surfing happens anyway
(What I mean is more like intentional inappropriate touching, but meh)
User avatar #437 to #433 - homicidalherpes (05/12/2013) [-]
It actually doesn't get that bad. I'm a female and go to concerts quite frequently, groping is usually minimalistic. It gets to the point where you can't really tell the difference between accidental and intentional since there's usually so many people.
#444 to #437 - happypancake (05/13/2013) [-]
I've been living a lie! All this time, I could've been crowdsurfing!
User avatar #211 - tiredandhungry (05/09/2013) [-]
apart from the occasional twat, most people in metal pits are awesome. Hardcore pits, not so much. I remember once though at Bloodstock Open Air this massively fat kid thought he was the **** in knocking everyone in the pit down so one guy just charged him and bowled him over and the look on his face was priceless. Didn't see him in the pit after that.

I also miss Stampin Ground. They had some of the best pits I've seen, even if the crowds weren't massive
User avatar #245 to #211 - napalmpie (05/09/2013) [-]
In the last fest where I went was some kind of dwarf, in the pit, who was grabbing people and pushed them out of the pit.
At some point this had become so boring that nearly everyone in the pit started to punch him but kept him in the pit.
User avatar #247 to #245 - napalmpie (05/09/2013) [-]
By punching him, I meant, really.
When he finally escaped he stayed away.

I went to a Rammstein concert with my friend Braden a few months ago and I can definitely attest that metal fans are some of the more polite music fans to be around. The only other concerts that have had more polite and friendly people have been Rush concerts.
User avatar #416 to #167 - mcbrosephson (05/09/2013) [-]
When Rush came to Houston in December, it was in the Toyota Center and people would switch rows with others so that they could see better, I am 6 feet 3 inches and the person behind me was 5 feet 4 inch and I switched with him. It wasn't a big deal because I was close enough to the stage. Sometimes I saw the taller people remain sitting so they wouldn't block others.
User avatar #420 to #416 - nigeltheoutlaw ONLINE (05/09/2013) [-]
And that's why I love going to Rush concerts.
