How to explain the metal genre to your crush

If you are not lucky enough like me and you only find average chicks with no knowledge in music, here's a way to clarify the different ideas of metal, and never do THIS, it's the worst way to introduce the genre to a girl, even if the final explanation is accurate.

Yes, this album is metal, metal for the masses. If you are an old school metallica fan, to try to clarify that metallica was better before this album, will not improve your image. Even though this is actually true.
2Cannibal Corpse
Eaten Back to Life

Now, the average radio friendly listener who sympathises with Katy Perry, will probably come to the conclusion that this is what metal sounds like, but nope, this is a more extreme version of what traditional metal sounds like. And no, metal is not all about death, and blood, and violence, and all that, it depends on the type of band.
3Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast

Now, this is classic heavy metal, and tell the girl that don't be tricked by the album cover, many songs are pretty positive and epic (such us run to the hills) while others such us the titled track talks about Satan but from a Biblical point of view rather than glorifying him.
Vulgar Display of Power

It's not rare that you find people who likes at least 1 pantera song, (unless you are a believer) and they're pretty much the link between classic sabbath and classic metallica, you scream a little more and there you have the developers of groove metal in the 90's.

If you ever find a girl who is ignorant enough to think that nirvana is metal, well...tell her that, even though nirvana IS influenced by some heavy bands, the band is not metal at all...

Tool is pretty popular, and this album is the best example how they took the best of prog rock of the 70's the aggressiveness of helmet, and show her that metal is not only creative, but also complex and technical, there's nothing boring about listening a song in 9/8
