What are American mosh pits like? Do people form circles and push people randomly? Do they skew towards violence?
Do they (god forbid) simply jump up and down to the beat? Good sense of timing?
Most Australian mosh pits I've found to be a bunch of people jumping up and down to the beat of the music. It's a form of dancing afterall, and its very annoying when some idiot thinks that moshing goes from one side to another, or just sits there pushing the person in front of them.
European mosh pits are more like this, with a idiots everywhere pushing people around the place and lots of circles. Circles are shit.
Any insights? RATM should in theory be the best mosh pit ever known to man!
