Bla-bla-bla Need an amp for $150 or less

I'm looking for an amp that I can keep for a few years that can play a wide variety of music that costs $150 or less. I play anywhere from softer pop rock to hard rock and metal, as well as some punk. I will mostly be playing classic rock. Clean sounds and overdriven sounds are both very important to me, but more distortion than anything. $150 is my price limit currently, but if I wait a while I could get a more expensive amp. I've been looking at the Fender Mustangs. I think Fender FUSE would be important to me, since I don't have a pedal and I don't plan on buying one. I need one that gets somewhat loud, as I do plan on gigging in the future--if it doesn't get loud enough for that, it's fine. But I want one that gets much louder than my $20 Honeytone Mini Amp which is relatively loud. This is why I'm wondering if I should wait it out and get the Mustang II over the Mustang I, but I would really hate to spend $80 more. I'm playing a Squier Affinity Strat, and I'm considering converting it into a Fat Strat (H/S/S). I would prefer a more humbucker-esque
tone for the hard rock I will play.

Bands I will play mostly: Cheap Trick, Big Star, Raspberries, The Who, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Pearl Jam, and also SOME Todd Rundgren stuff.

I'd like to know what amp I should get.

If your in the USA you can't beat this Line 6 Flextone for your budget. It absolutely destroys the Mustang and it is only $125

Maybe you should check for some used items. You can get some nice things for $150 used.

My only problem with this is that I can't find any quality videos or reviews of this particular amp, mind linking me?
