Every one has a style, has an identity and has a purpose in life. Most people in society belong in a Genera/Subculture relating to attitudes, lifestyles, likes and musical tastes of such styles of music from Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative, Jazz, Contemporary, Rap to Techno and so on. LIFE IS ALL ABOUT CHOICES. The Skull Man made the choice of getting into Rock and Metal Music at the beginning of High School. The Skull Man has been going to concerts and into Mosh Pits ever since he was a little Skull Man. The culture and fans that go into Mosh Pits range from Punks - Rockers - Death Metalers - Goths - Industrial people - Hardcore people - Goofs. Most of the time you will find friendly folks in Mosh Pits that are fans just like you and me showing there passion for the music we hear.
Every Culture and Sub Culture has it's people with bad or rotten attitudes towards others and society, this is found out when coming into contact with these people and finding out there attitude, values, actions and there beliefs towards others, society and themselves. When you find that out about that person then you can draw your own judgment on that person but do not condemn them all that look like that person. People may dress similar but all people have different personalities and value different things. Things may make sense to some people but not to others.
Music is linked to personality in the ways people talk and live part of their lives. The more intense the music is the more intense the energy is in the Mosh Pits. Heavy music has been proven to enhance mood, productivity and performance. One thing to keep in mind is that some people go traitor from their culture. Example some people start off as a Rocker but then get into different types of music, start to talk differently, think differently and dress differently because they think it is the cool hip thing to do. I ask you this, what are the reasons you listen to what you listen to? Why do you dress the way you dress? And why do people act the way they act relating to their music? The reason I listen to Rock, Metal and all my Heavy Music is because it makes me feel alive, it makes me feel good, it motivates me and inspires me. I dress the way I do because I am proud to support and show the bands that I am loyal to. The way I act is civilized and respectful compared to certain types of other people who listen to different types of music that are about disrespect to others and society. Below is a break down of the types of people into Heavy Music and that go into Mosh Pits. Some people can be put into more then one category.
