Where in the world did this word come from? (as in mosh pit) Is it just a made up word or does it have connection with some meaning?

Dictionaries say the word showed up in the 80's as heavy metal dancing, usually near the stage, where the dancers banged into one another. They tentatively think it was coined from mash or mush.

Isn't the word pit the pits?
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.
