The Top Ten

1 Hardcore Punk
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 Metal Core

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

5 Melodic Hardcore
6 Horror Punk
7 Pop-Punk

I know, pop music is the worst thing wich mankind ever made but pop-punk is really good

Pop punk aren't very bad that some say. green day is a good punk though - zxm

8 Crossover Thrash
9 Skate Punk

amazing bands that are skate punk include but aren't limited to NOFX, Millencolin, Lagwagon, Gold Finger, Pennywise and Less than Jake.

17 Garage Rock

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

18 Grunge Grunge Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s .

No, grunge is a sub-genre of alternative rock, not punk rock - zxm
