...of a Stratocaster to play distorted stuff? The single coil, that is. I'm talking rock, punk, hard rock, and heavy metal.

If it was all I had, sure. I'd rather an HB though, or the neck pup (much meatier sounding).

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I used to but now i only use it for when i play a little bit of overdrive and cleans. it's way too buzzy. but i do like when the bridge and middle are used together. i get a nice fat tone out of it.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

i do, i use the bridge for distorted riffing, neck for solos, and middle for clean stuff, i rarely use the inbetween combos

I use it to play like standard rock and punk rock.
But I dont think its a good idea to play heavy metal with it, it wont sound right. The genres you've said are quite far apart distortion wise so... yeah
Rather play heavier stuff with a humbucker, but SC is good for like punk.

IMO people don't use single coils enough for heavy stuff. It provides a really unique tone.
