    Obviously there are some more valuable but uncommon metals that you will have trouble finding, but as for the 5 most common scrap metals (Aluminum, stainless steel, copper, brass, and iron), copper gets you the most money at around $2.50/ pound.  Brass is second at $1.30, then stainless steal ($.80), aluminum ($.70), and iron ($.10).  Lead is relatively common and will get you about 5x more than copper ($12.50).
