Since the late 60's, there's been a conflict between rock bands who value heavy loud music, and the other who values social rebellion as a theme.
The Stooges and Velvet Underground were the protopunks who tried to oppose the rising popularity of heavy metal predecessors like Cream, Jimi hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Deep Purple.

When the uneducated metalheads talk of punk, they say "it's ****ing ****!"
When punks, emos, goths, and skaters comment on metal they usually say "I don't like it, it's too loud."

Personally I'm on neither side, though I may lean more on the Heavy Metal.
As a Zeppelin fan I just can't fully accept the music of the rebels who rely on the heart rather than technical ability.
Honestly though most modern punk bands, or the so-called pop punks, are dull.

On the other hand Metal is very technically, especially those by Megadeth.
I can hardly call it music, but those like Opeth and Led Zeppelin make magnificant metal that borrows heavily from other genres.

Which side are YOU on?

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

You've put quite a bit of thought into this. It's a shame I can't return the favour...

Good music. No matter on what side it's on.

me too. I'm on the side of good music. There is crap punk and crap metal and there is good punk and good metal.

What?

And you're generalizing metal and punk listeners. Thrash metal borrowed heavily off hardcore punk so...yes.

While a lot of punk music isn't very good, some bands have a good lyrical message.

So, I'm not on any side, really.

I'm a punk but I got a lot of Metal in my collection, mainly Thrash through.

I like interesting riffs and solos (being a guitarist and all) but I despise songs that have minutes of mindless shredding in.

why i like metal: it's good music, lots of skill and great riffs.

why i like punk: it's good music, doesn't need skill and great riffs.

I like a bit of both...but I listen to more metal bands than punk bands. Proper punk bands, anyway.

Frankly, I know this is heresy, but I prefer "pop-punks" to real punks. These days, the division is blurred. Are Street Dogs real punk? What about Set Your Goals? Or the Swingin' Utters? Or Dropkick Murphies? It's hard to tell.

Also, I think the major divison these days isn't punk vs. metal, it's all rock subgenres vs. all hip-hop subgenres.

I didnt hear of any "metal vs punk war"? We have been good friends with each other from the start, from what i can see.

If anything, in the southeast asian region, the war was black against death in the early 90s.

There was a bit of conflict in the 80's, when punks were all like "METAL IZ DED LOL" and then Iron Maiden and Judas Priest rose to fame, and metal fans were all like "PUNX R GAY".

These days, however, not even the most severe metal elitists will complain if you listen to Megadeth and Black Flag.

im on both... i honestly listen to all sorts of metal to screamo and punk rock

but i kinda know what you mean, i like both genres and when i go onto the punk forum im instantly called "an ignorant metalhead" no matter what i say. and whenever i meantion punk around metalheads a lot of times their like

I prefer punk simply because metal is too much like a competition. Who can be the fastest? Who can be the heaviest? Who can be the most brutal? Who can be the most technical? What band is the most ****ed up and evil? Who can be the most epic? etc. etc.


Whereas punk concentrates on just writing good songs rather than being "the most" (with a few notable exceptions)

and punk is not? who can be the most punk? who can not sell out and somehow put enough food on the table to keep them alive? who can be the most original yet "keep it simple" with 3-5 chords per song?

both genres have their own ridiculous competitions
