Understands what Punk ia really about, aggression and rebellion!
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
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
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
Thrash Metal + Hardcore Punk. Which Thrash Metal already had Hardcore punk in it. Along with other extreme metal subgenres. - MegadethFan07
Crust Punk Is heavier than Hardcore Punk. Because It’s also a extreme metal subgenre. It has Biker Metal and Proto-Extreme Metal. - MegadethFan07
Br00tal stuff brah! It has elements of extreme metal and hardcore punk. Best thing since Deathgrind and crossover Thrash!
Misfits. - Userguy44
Pop punk aren't very bad that some say. green day is a good punk though - zxm
I know, pop music is the worst thing wich mankind ever made but pop-punk is really good

Ex. My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182
Psychobilly Is a punk subgenre. Not rockabilly though. - MegadethFan07
The rockabilly I know is something like rock n roll. came long ago than punk rock. - zxm
It’s actually the other way around. Punk rock Is a subgenre of garage rock. So Is hard rock. - MegadethFan07
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
If metalcore counts as a subgenre of metal then thrash metal is also a subgenre of hardcore punk - yungstirjoey666
