    Never experience that, except in my days when i went to punk/hxc shows...never at a dnb set though..I don't think those were people that understand the culture of the music much...In some cases at punk/hxc shows, some of the people moshing, the ignorant ones who are moshing that is, aren't even paying attention to the music, they just want to throw people around and smash into them, etc..

    Who made you the motherfucking dance police?

    Let people dance however the fuck they want.

    Stop complaining because you're too scrawny to join a mosh pit.

    is it your time of the month mate*

    i like to get rowdy and give my mates some shit on the floor, it can often get quite physical, this is probably what you experienced.

    fuck moshing, anybody who enjoys/agrees with moshing is a dumb, ignorant anal bead in my opinion. violence and music are not supposed to relate

    lots and lots of music is about anger mate.

    the reason people mosh to metal is because it portays ther negative scale of feelings..

    this way they can let out their hate for shit by damaging brain cells..

    i used to do this. drum and bass is a better way off life no denial but still i undastand deez fingz

    ^^ Mosh pits aren't about hitting people on purpose. It's about going on a mad one.

    It's just the dickheads that don't realise you're bound to get hit who start the fights. WTF YOU BUMPING INTO ME FOR??

    It's a fucking moshpit you fool, go sit down if you're too fragile.


    Best moshpit I was in the thick of was Slipknot/Slayer. I was battered by the end of the night, but probably done some damage too.
