My First Mosh Pit - like Fight Club

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Saw Social Distortion in concert tonight in Houston:

Great show - and my first mosh pit! Where the hell have I been? I don't know.
It was like a mini-Fight Club meeting with similar rules/code of conduct:
1. Protect your ribs.
2. If someone pushes/body slams you in the pit, you HAVE TO slam back.
3. If someone falls down, you must help them up immediately - then push them back into the pit.
4. Even if a hot, punk chick shoves you in the pit, it is OK to shove her back with equal force.
5. If this is your first concert with a mosh pit - you have to mosh.

Feel free to add to the list.
