I was thinking about buying a fender american telecaster. Would it be able to handle playing like metal, and some of the heavier modern rock? along with classic rock?

It should be fine in theory.
But will not sound good through your MG..

I second that. You could use an amp replacement more than a guitar at this point. A good amp will get you a tone closer to what you want than a new guitar (through a shitty amp).

Do you endorse Marshall MG's?
If no, prepare to be told otherwise about your statement.
If yes, Run..

I play a mexican telecaster. I play mostly metal. Honestly, i love the way it sounds. but without humbuckers it screams alot easier. Noise gate can help that though.

Telecasters can get metal tone, just how strats can. It's all about the amp and all about which pickups you choose. I don't know if tele's are pre-routed for humbuckers like strats are, i'm not a fender dude, but you definitely need to rock some humbuckers.

It sounds bad.
To TS; Check out Aaron Fink. He plays with a modern rock tone and does at times use a telecaster.
