Not many, to be honest. Can't see it being more than about 30.

On a far more important level though, you should ditch BMTH and start listening to Overkill.

Depends on what you get up to in the mosh pit.

every person you knock down is 7 calories.

I'm not really sure about the answer, but I really hope it's a lot because I do my fair share of moshing at concerts too :P

Seeing as the average concert lasts about 3 hours, assuming that you go all out for the entire 3 hours, you could burn anywhere up to 1000 calories.

Happy moshing! :)

Got to be at least 450 an hour for the time you're doing it I'd have thought - if you're doing it properly, anyway :).

Wear an hrm and let us know :) ordinary dancing burns a lot. Or log it as aerobics? Or just enjoy and forget about calories.
