Any guitar with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position is perfect for this song. The humbucker provides the clarity and power when playing some heavy riffing through a hi-gain amplifier.

As far as amps go, any modern hi-gain amp is a great choice here.
Dial in plenty of pre-amp gain to make the power chords punch and the palm muted riffing thick and meaty. Check out the settings I used:

Modern Hi-Gain Model: Drive: 95% Bass: 35% Mid: 45% Treble: 55% Presence: 60%

Tune your low E string one full step down to D (dropped D tuning) to play along with this song.
