I want to learn guitar, but I need to buy one first. I want to play pop/punkish music. What kind should I buy?

I want to learn to play guitar, but I don't know what kind of guitar to buy. I want to play pop/punk type music, and a friend suggested an electric-acoustic guitar. I've only played around with other people's guitars before, but I really want to learn now. Any suggestions on guitars would be greatly... show more I want to learn to play guitar, but I don't know what kind of guitar to buy.
