Depends entirely on context. Usually the answer would be "ones you know" though.

Again, depends more on the context but for those two genres you could easily get away with only using the pentatonic. Hell, that statement is true of just about any western music.

I use major and minor scales depending on the key of the song. Pentatonic always works. Also try diminished scales. They don't always work, but i like the sound of them in certain contexts.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

Whichever scale is going to fit over whatever it is you're playing over.

Basically the major and minor scales are all you'll ever really need.
