Hang on, care to elaborate on the question a bit? If you mean an overdrive pedal, Cubes respond alright to light overdrive so it wouldn't sound too bad, If you're talking, for example, about turning it up on full and using high-gain pickups to make it break up, you'll get nothing but a nasty square wave mess.

If you use light pedal OD or a little volume boost to get some extra gain, it should be fine.
Essentially what kyle said.

Well, I was reffering to using an overdrive pedal the same way you would use it on a tube amp to give it a boost in gain or something.

Im asking this because I was just wondering how it would sound like if i put something like a bad monkey through the metal model of my roland cube 30.

^It may sound alright.
Maybe go to a local shop and try out an OD or boost with a cube there (very common amps, you shouldn't have a problem)
