I got my electric in like May of last year and my strings are finally going out of tune. Now I'm not sure what brand or type of strings to get. I mostly play punk and alternative songs with power chords and stuff like that so \what type of strings should I get in order to produce the right sound?

ernie ball s are great !
or try d'addario also great they stay in tune very good and dont break very fast

i just put some D'addario's on, they're a pretty good choice, and a hell of a lot cheaper than coated strings

i hate d'addario

i prefer elixir or blue steel.
or ernie ball, they have a great tone but the don't last too long.

I use Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies and they are awsome. I play mostly metal, some hard rock and a few clean stuffs.

You already have the best inexpensive strings listed...Earnie Ball & D'Adarrio. You might want to change your strings out more often. New strings sound so much better once you get them stretched out. Buy in bulk over Musicians Friend or other Internet warehouse.

How the hell did your strings last that long! I end up changing mine like once a month. I'd go either EB or Elixir.
