single coil: the ones like those on the cheap stratocasters, just a line of 6 magnets, good for clean twangy stuff like RHCP or funk music

humbucker: looks like two single coils put together, good for distortion like punk and metal
and there's those that are used on telecasters. don't know what they're called or if they're just single coil.
