I Just started out learning how to play the guitar.

I want to play hardcore rock. I bought a line 6 amp Spider IV 15 watt off Craigslist for $65. I heard that these amps suck for distortion.

Are there any good amps for me for around $100-200?

probably just use the spider... there are better amps than the spider for your budget, but it's debatable if they're enough better to justify upgrading to. And if you're only starting out you mightn't hear much difference, either.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Use your current gear, save your money, learn as much as you can and when you have the funds go and buy gear that will let you sound like you want to. (It won't take forever, it will just feel like it!!)

Decent amps can be had in the $350-400 range.
