I saw one dudebro leave the pit in a white t-shirt stained with two rivers of blood. I saw his bro following close behind, his nipple rings torn out.

My first, and last, mosh pit. Hating mosh pits might be the only thing I can agree with Billy Corgan on.

Dunno about the violence thing. Though I didn’t frequent them in 90s Seattle, all the ones I went to were actually kind of safe. People kind of lolled about into each other. And if someone stumbled, people would quickly catch them and kept them on their feet. Superficially chaotic but actually chill.

Wearing piercings? That’s a different matter. Too easily snagged.
