aeolian or cmaj are probably the most used
Sorry if Ive offended some kind of Punk God I should brush up on my Commandments of Punk maybe copy down the Punk Bible a few thousand times so I don't forget again sorry for my error O Punk Master Of All Things That Are Punk .

What kind of metal? Progressive metal songs based in scales such as harmonic or double harmonic minor are always a favorite of mine.

A real challenge for you might be trying to use a standard major scale to create the same heavy dark feeling in a song.
