If you want to demonstrate heavy metal to a non-fan, you take them to something like Maiden, Dio when he was around, or anything else which is heavy, but where no one can deny the singing is good, because in the vast majority of cases it's extreme singing people don't like, not heavy guitars, and most people think all metal is death metal "screaming and shouting".
Yeah, CC and Gojira were just the first two bands that popped in my head. Both would still get a much better reaction from non-metal fans than Assjack, though.
