My band, we're mainly a funk band but lately our jams and writing sessions have been producing a lot of punk. I think its a great change (mainly because my favourite bands are mostly punk) and our funk is usually really fast and high-energy so it's similar to punk anyway. However, my band mates disagree with all of these punk jams and they think we should stick to our fast-funk roots ...

What can I say to them to change their decision, I know in my heart (sentimental I know ) that this little change is such a good thing for us.

And by the way, one punk song we wrote was the best thing we've ever written, and they all agreed on that so we are going to keep that one song no matter what.

Id say do a mixture of the two really, either punky funk or funky punk. Unfortuanetly, there is no real way to mix the two genres in a wrod, as your going to end up with either 'funk, or punk' either way lol.

But yeah, mix it up.

Don't limit yourself under labels. This is gonna sound weird on a forum of "metalheads" (if they can even call themselves that) but take the Linkin Park route and play music that's outside of the box... something hard to label. Punky Funk would be a pretty tricky one to industrialize.

Mix whatever genres you guys like as long as you can say that you enjoy your own songs as a group.

Write what makes you happy, and what you enjoy playing.

Let the listeners/critics worry about what it is called.

I'd have to say keeping a mix of genre keeps things from getting boring. Lol, that and if your funk and you make punk maybe thats a hint lol.
