Default Proto-Punk or Post-Punk?

It's pretty obvious what you need to do.... just choose which one is your favorite: proto-punk or post-punk.

Now, I realize that proto-punk isn't technically a genre, but just a term used to refer to musicians who were influential in the making of punk rock, but just roll with it... To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if post-punk is a complete genre either...

Some examples of proto-punk: The Monks, The Stooges, MC5, Death, The Sonics, The Velvet Underground, The Deviants, New York Dolls, etc.

Some examples of post-punk: Joy Division, Magazine, Swell Maps, Wire, The Pop Group, Tuxedomoon, The Raincoats, etc.

That's a tough one, I love a lot of bands from both brackets. At a push I'd go for proto-punk, but I get a lot of satisfaction from each of them.

Good poll. Very different genres, despite their mutual connection to punk. I guess I respect post-punk for having higher artistic aspirations a lot of the times, but I think I've listened more to proto-punk, especially the Stooges, VU and the Sonics.

While I enjoy both genres of music, I listen to far more post-punk then proto-punk, however that said Raw Power (1973) by The Stooges is in my top 5 favorite albums of all time.

Post Punk because of the sheer diversity. Proto punk was setting down the rules without really knowing it and Post Punk tore them apart and reassembled them.
