Good bass driver for punk and metal?

My group's got a show comimng up, and I haven't been told what type/model of amps we're being provided with. If it sounds crappy, my bass player is gonna need a dist pedal. Seeing as I only play guitar, I've got no clue what models would be good for what we're playing, which (in order) is rage against the machine, two originals with an iron maiden sound, actual iron maiden, and billy talent.

So, basically something that can go from something punky to Brit Metal. I'm ball-parking it a budget at $100 for now.

I couldn't find any well known users of the Bass Muff. If it sounds like the regular Muff but for bass then it would be worth it. However after doing some research on Google it seems that some bassists like the regular Muff more for bass, especially the Russian Big Muff.

I've also heard some bassists (like Krist from Nirvana) used a ProCo Rat distortion with good results. If that's what he used to get that distorted sound for "D-7" for the Reading 1992 show, then I'll probably buy one eventually.

I have been in a cover band that plays mainly classic rock and metal as a bassist. The EHX Big Muff Pi for bass has been my only drive pedal and can do a lot, from the Cliff Burton sounds in Metallica (original soviet big muff pi for guitar), to Muse synth sounds (several types of big muff pi through the years).

I don't know if it has enough drive for billy talent sounds, as the wooly mammoth from ZVex has a LOT of gain, but this pedal is pricey: maybe look for a good copy?
