It wasn't until the arrival of thrash metal in the early-to-mid-Eighties that slam dancing — or "moshing" — crossed over from skinheads to longhairs. And one of the bands that embraced this stylistic shift the most was Anthrax, who went as far as titling a song "Caught in a Mosh." The song's initial idea can be traced to a particular show in Denver, when the group's guitar tech, Art Ring, tried to clear a fan from the stage, who in turn pulled him into the audience. "Art fell underneath the kid and f---ed up his back really bad," Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante recalled. "Afterward, when the paramedics were looking at him, the one thing he said was, 'Oh, dude, I got caught in a mosh.'"
