i play lead guitar in a band and was wondering what overdrive pedal i should get. i play stuff like guns n roses, hendrix, nirvana, social distortion, ramones, sex pistols, stuff like that. i dont really know anything about overdrive pedals and i want one that will basically just increase the volume with out changing the tone at all. so what brands should i look into getting?

^nice. a decent guitar and a tube amp. for just boosting your volume, you'll want a clean boost pedal. here are some on the market:
EHX LPB: $40?
Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster: $Iono
MXR Micro-Amp: $70ish?
BBE Boosta Grande: $80 ish?

i like the MXR and BBE the most.

The overdrive you should be getting with that amp should barely need a pedal to boost it! Try an OCD, a Tim, A ZVex Box Of Rock, an MI Audio OD, a Love Pedal Eternity or an Analogman King of Tone. Those are some nice OD pedals
