Recently, the Alternative Press alerted the internet about perhaps the most disturbing musical trend happening now: dubstep mosh pits.
The idea of moshing to dubstep brings out a conflicting set of emotions. It's exciting to watch people slam their bodies into each other, but to the soundtrack of this most grimy and masculine of sub-genres? It's almost fitting, but then totally disorienting.
Now, as you tread forward in this post, be warned that unless you are stoned, filled with manageable hatred, or an actual fan of the genre, you may want to put your head through a wall after watching these.
We saw a lot of videos, didn't put our heads through a wall, but gathered these nine of the most entertaining clips.
9. Wall of Death
Brits are aggressive dubsteppers, huh? No killjoys allowed, and you must look each other in the eyes before smashing bodies. Rules are rules, people.
8. Ska Mosh
Isn't this more drum and bass? These moshers are just so much fun to look at with their corny outfits and dorky masks. They look like they're skanking.
7. Dusty Days
These guys and gals were really into moving their arms around, that is until someone got hurt. And a proper mosh pit doesn't cease once a dude hits the ground. That's just weak.
