The Top Ten
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
Skate punk rules!
amazing bands that are skate punk include but aren't limited to NOFX, Millencolin, Lagwagon, Gold Finger, Pennywise and Less than Jake.
Pop punk aren't very bad that some say. green day is a good punk though - zxm
Br00tal stuff brah! It has elements of extreme metal and hardcore punk. Best thing since Deathgrind and crossover Thrash!
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
