The Top Ten Punk Rock Sub-Genres

1 Hardcore Punk

One of the few subgenres where there is no doubt that it is 100% punk

Understands what Punk ia really about, aggression and rebellion!

2 Classic Punk

I was actually thinking of making this list yesterday. But there is no "punk" style that stacks up against the classic sound of The Ramones, Clash, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, The Germs, and The Descendants. - ryanrimmel

Classic punk is one of the best punk sub-genres. punk rock started from here - zxm

3 Ska Punk

Ska punk is not only my favorite punk rock sub-genre, but my favorite genre in general. Rancid(although they also fit into hardcore punk! ), Goldfinger, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, so many good bands. But really, everyone wins as long as its punk. - SmileyStudios

4 Melodic Hardcore
5 Metal Core

Is metal core a sub-genre of punk rock? - zxm

Mix of Both Metal and Hardcore so it does count as subgenres of both. - DarkBoi-X

Misfits. - Userguy44

The rockabilly I know is something like rock n roll. came long ago than punk rock. - zxm

Agreed with ryanrimmel's remix. is garage rock really a sub-genre of punk rock? no, cause it was originated before punk rock it sounds more likely power-pop - zxm
