Dunno about metal, but for punk I'd like to recommend The Jam. Download "In the City" and/or "Going Underground". A band I always felt never got their due. Hope you like it...

As far as the metal goes, I'd suggest looking at some of the old school stuff.

From the early-mid 80s: OLD Metallica, especially "Kill'em All," Possessed, Venom, Slayer -- "Show No Mercy," "Hell Awaits," "Reign in Blood," "South of Heaven," and "Seasons in the Abyss." Lots of wicked fun.

Might want to look into Anthrax. They were doing rap-metal since '88 or so with "I'm the Man" and "Bring the Noise." There best albums are probably "Spreading the Disease" and "Among the Living." Their later stuff, like "Sound of White Noise" has a definite nu-metal feel.

I'll second some hardcore influenced metal bands like Prong, Biohazzard, Pro-Pain.

Also some hardcore/crossover stuff like Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, DRI.

And you can't go wrong with old Ozzy, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest. Might not sound much like Slipknot, but it's what gave birth to the modern metal genre two decades ago.

If you like SOAD check out Refused's Shape of Punk to Come. A great hardcore album that goes in many directions at once.

Don't know if all my punk suggestions would fall under the Bad Religion/Pennywise sound, but here are some bands I like:

Operation Ivy
The Clash
Stiff Little Fingers (old stuff)
Dropkick Murphys
Flogging Molly (celtic punk)
Citizen Fish
Value Pac
Swingin' Utters
One Man Army

If I think of more later I'll post it.
