moshing

Definition

Slang

  • noun dancing in a packed scrimmage to heavy metal, hardcore or any other fast, loud rock music. This activity, which is more a form of energetic communal writhing than dancing, was adopted by fans of hard rock during the late 1980s as a successor to slam dancing, headbanging or the characteristic playing of imaginary guitars (‘air guitar’).
