I play some pop punk, and I use D'Addario .011-.049, the ones that say Blues/Jazz rock on them, I just like the way they feel. I know Billy Martin of Good Charlotte uses D'Addario, I dunno what gauge though.
Oh and here in Aus they're $25 fo 3 sets

if you like tight strings 11s if not go 10s or 9s they both rock D'Addario strings are fresh

if your just starteding, i would get .009 gauge strings.


they'll be looser and therefore easier to fret things


that'll be handy when your learning to play barre chords clean

Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkies. The high strings are thin enough that they won't hurt your fingers but the low ones are thick enough to bring out power chords better.

Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies are my choice. Doesn't really matter too much though. All strings are made in pretty much the same way, out of the same stuff.
My only no-no is Rotosound. Worst strings ever made.
Amps:
Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb
Laney VC15
Cabs:
2x Blackheart 1x12

THIS +2

The thicker the bottom end, the fuller your power chords will sound*


(*unless of course u do something stupid like 13 - 64 gauge strings.)

10 - 52 is the tits

Always start with 9s. When you get better and stronger you can try something else and realise why they are better!!

I'm using 10-52 for pretty much everything right now. then again, I just tune to Drop D. I mainly play pop punk like The Wonder Years and Veara and Hit The Lights, so it's a bit different (opposite side of the pop punk spectrum compared to blink and green day)
