alright so I have a MIM HSS Strat with the stock pickups and I was wondering what would be a good pickup setup for a classic rock, hard rock, and blues set up... a little metal maybe.. thanks for the help...

**** man that's all too easy - get a DiMarzio Cruiser or Air Norton (the stacked version) for the neck, maybe a HS3 for the middle pup, and a Tone Zone for the Bridge, you'll be set, without having to shell out too much money.

I would also recommend the Bill Lawrence SCN pups which come with the American Deluxe strats, I have one - though I'm not sure they'd cut it for too much heavy rock stuff, but the DiMarzio's are a safe bet.
