    Where are all you guys saying punk usually? Come on, I'm practically alone amongst the progs here!
    I'm not realllllly into either, but I definitely like punk more than metal.

    Metal in general. I'm kinda dumb towards most Punk Rock, but I can definitely appreciate what it's trying to do.

    Hmmmm...
    I don't really dig punk that much. I dig a few tunes here and there but....yeah.

    Metal.

    And to the whole punk/metal scenes discussion, at least to me, it seems like if you noticed somebody that digs metal, and one great band, you're going to get along. Some dude who works with another company at my site looks like Layne Staley, asked him if he digs the metal, said he digs the Pantera, and now we're probably going to start a band or something. I dunno, it just seems we're a pretty tight group where you know what's up.

    Can we vote punk metal?

    I prefer metal overall, but love me some classic punk bands like the Misfits, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Bad Brains, etc.

    I chose to vote punk only because it's behind. I love both genres, though. I think I'll overload the system:

    Municipal Waste
    Suicidal Tendencies
    Repulsion
    Assück
    Stormtroopers Of Death
    Terrorizer

    No vote. I like both genres a lot. I listen to more punk bands casually, but the metal bands I listen to, I listen to religiously.

    The idea is not to decide which is better but which people like the most.
    Really, cause the OP specifically asks which is better.

    Shocked at the polling results so far given how much "not enough metal" posts you tend to see on the boards and the collective groans every time a punk song comes out.

    I don't fit into any of Loli's categories. I'm a fat old punk that knows (most) everything and rarely listens to reggae. Besides, everybody knows the punk rock retirement community is the rockabilly scene.

    Punk for sure, but I have respect for metal. Colony of Birchmen is a good song.

    Punk is kind of fun but its just not all that interesting to me so metal wins by a long shot. Nothing against the form of music but I also hate the whole punk style, especially wearing a tie with an otherwise normal or somewhat ratty outfit, that has to be among the most visually displeasing things I've ever seen

    I usually prefer punk, but metal is great too. Neither genre is inherently better than the other.

    Yes but nobody gives a **** if the op still doesn't realise that it's impossible to determine.

    Yes, spandex pants, big white moonboot size basketball shoes, acid wash jean vests and teased hair is so much more appealing.

    If you're going to assume all metal is Glam, than I can also assume all punk is pop-punk...

    The idea behind Punk style is to look ugly to the bourgeoisie.

    The idea behind Metal style is to look like a horde character from WoW.

    How about to the generation of kids that punk is Green Day, Blink 182, and Simple Plan and metal is Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit. Im sure everyone is collectively groaning right about now.

    That was actually pretty typical of all metal people in the 80s, glam or otherwise, but I'm pretty sure my point sailed over your head.

    Where can I get pics of Slayer looking like this. That would be awesome.

    Both are good, but I prefer punk myself. I wish both genres could get along though, because they are quite similar.

    I was actually at a co-headlining show between Against Me! (before they were making generic pop songs and still playing punk) and Mastodon. And I was standing next to a guy wearing a Mastodon shirt, and during AM!'s set he noticed that I was a fan of AM!. And then about 10 minutes after they ended he said "PUNK SUCKS!" and punched me in the face.

    I just wish the genres could get along.

    They do get along and have gotten along historically for a long time. Look how many times theyve ****ed each other and made a baby. Speed metal & NWOBHM being the first. Then you have thrash, crust, grindcore, grunge, metalcore, crossover, etc...

    That's funny because Mastodon is sludge (doom + hardcore punk)

    I thought they got along too, but then I got punched in the face. My thoughts have since been revised.

    Well sometimes metal beats me in the face too but I just tell everyone I fell down the stairs. No one understands him like me, he does have a soft side. I wish everyone could see this and stop asking me about my blackeyes.

    Slayer no, but Maiden, Megadeth and plenty of others all had 2 or 3 of those 4 elements working simultaneously.
