Speaker/Amp for band practice?

Hiya Slutz!
Today my old, cruddy Peavey amp blew out while my band and I were practicing. This amp was small and underpowered (probably not much more than 15 watts), but nonetheless I waited for it to fail before I would search for a new one.

My question is, since I have very little knowledge in the world of speakers and amps; what would be a good, cheap amp/speaker for my guitar and mic for band practice? My old Peavey was special because it had a 1/4 and an XLR input, so I could plug in my mic and geetar at the same time. I also need enough watt capacity for band practice, but I'm not looking for a speaker to gig, so I think that 30 watts would be fine, right? (I have no clue). I have a budget of not much more than 100$; I hope that's at least somewhat realistic. I'm also absolutely willing to buy secondhand. I don't need any of that effects rubbish because I have my own pedals and hardware.

Thanks in advance!

What type of music are you playing? How loud are you playing? And are you talking guitar or bass amp?

Just $100? 30 watt? Your budget is a little low....

We're playing rock and metal, so it can get decently loud. And, haha, I was afraid of the budget being too low. I was thinking of shopping around on craigslist, but obviously that's not ideal to get exactly what I want/need. I'm talking guitar amp, but again, I'm thinking that multipurpose speakers/monitors will do, since I already have pedals, and I'm not going for a special sound - it's just band practice. As long as I can hear the guitars over the drums, I'm fine.

It looks as if I should be looking for a powered active speaker or monitor - can anyone tell me if this is right?
