What type of effect pedal do I need to play Kryptonite and which brand would you recommend?

I'm new to guitar.....

You need a decent tubed amp, an overdrive pedal(TS808 tube screamer is a really popular/reliable one, as is the boss OD-3), and a chorus pedal(I've never owned one since I have an mfx kit, but I'm sure somebody else could help you with that.
Fender Lone Star Stratocaster
Schecter C-1 Classic
Schecter C-1 SH
Peavey VK112
Line 6 Pod X3 Live
Boss OS-2
Dunlop Crybaby Wah
#3
what guitar and amp do you have? its impossible to know how to help you without knowing what you have already

oh, and whats your budget (I could suggest some $350 pedals, but you may not want to spend that)

OP, it's a distortion and Chorus from what I here.

Don't get fooled, you don't need the exact effects they use, if you don't want to/can't afford too.
