I need help trying to choose slanted or straight 4x12 cabinet! Can somebody please go into detail on the differences!? thanks

they're essentially the same cabinet in terms of overall performance. It's just that the slanted cabinet is slanted backwards at the top, so that it looks neater when you place a head on top of the cabinet. Non-slanted cabinets allow for other cabinets to be stacked on top of them.

Straight cabs also tend to have a bigger bass response than a slant because of the extra room in the cab.

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.

Slanted fits into a trunk easier.

If you're standing next to a slant cab while playing in a band situation, it'll disperse the sound to your ears a little better than a straight cab will. I.E. -- you might be able to hear yourself a little better. Also, if you're performing at the same level as your audience, or in a traditional ampitheater, your sound might disperse a little better than with a straight cab.

We're not talking about huge differences here, however.

Exactly. And I would even say it is quite a difference. I play on straight cabs, besause I like the extra kick in the stomach. But I wouldn't mind to switch one of them for a slanted cab in live situations.
