When this word started out, it was those people that liked there Rave music and it people who had long hair and liked Nirvana was branded as a mosha. Back then (1992-1998)Anyone who was branded a mosha was a minority and Ravers were the majority. This sort of battle has been going for years. Watch Quadrophinia - Mods & Rockers.
However, the younger generation (that were born after 1983) think it is a great word for someone who likes "Nu Metal" And go around calling people fake moshas (or as the spelling was originally "Moshers".
Mosher: Excuse me?
Used by Townies/scallies who are Obviosly the best things on the world, of course, with certainly gives them the right to put down EVERYONE else and brand them all as "Mosha's" of "Goff's"
No alternative in their right Mind would say they are a Mosha unless they were pathetic Half breeds, Minimoshas, Skaters who wish they weren't, you get the point.
Alt - "Go Home, Get A Wash, Find Some music Taste, come back when your worth talking to"
Townie - "Ya Starting Me Like Kidda fuk?"
Alt - "No, actually"
Townie - "Eh, What, Yea ya were"
Alt - Parden, were you talking to me?"
Townie - *Brain Melts Out Of Ears in Confusion*
Townies in internet chat rooms tend not to be able to spell using insults like shumt the fumnkup or you phyco none of them can type worth a damn.
Townie: "Ooo mosha whats your name."
Me: "Me why Im the thing that goes bump in the Night". *Pushes over and walks by*
defined by someone who is sober: anyone who partakes in a mosh. Which is everyone. There is nobody out there who has not moshed - its inevitable.
Its like saying someone has never danced.
