'marsh pit' for 'mosh pit'

A mosh pit is an area in front of a cancert stage where audience members crowd together and dance aggressively (mosh). From a distance, it looks like a swamp (or marsh) of bodies. Examples:

Well, look on the bright side – no neck ache from all the head banging and no painful legs from all that jumping in the marsh pit .

I was fortunate enough to hear it live when the Chilli was playing in Big Day Out even I got really wasted and bruised up in the Marsh Pit .

It starts out with a guy in a concert and you see these people jumpin ’ in the marsh pit… … e4b643473f

why dont you coordinate a rock concert. have a marsh pit and a band.

...listening to Asian bubble-gum pop sensations that would make Britney and N’Sync sound like marsh pit classics.$22
