127Vermillion Pt. 2 - Slipknot

this is one of the very saddest slipknot songs I have heard - freezerman75

128Ordinary World - Duran Duran

This song can turn a pessimist person into optimistic one. The vibrant of this song is surreal. Surely the best ever Duran Duran song that talk about how to live life to the fullest. The guitar riff touch your deepest heart and its lyrics is simply brilliant.

129Right Now - Van Halen
130The Sound Of Silence - Disturbed

Utterly amazing performance, cover versions usually leave me cold but this is astounding. Hairs on The back of my neck stand to attention. So so good it rivals nothing else matters which is the biggest compliment I can give.

One of the best covers ever made

131Oh My Love - John Lennon
132Finale - L'Arc~en~Ciel
133Sad Song - D'erlanger
134Jane Says - Jane's Addiction
135Wild Is the Wind - Bon Jovi
136My Immortal - Evanescence

This should be number one. Evanescene forever. Amy has the most agelic voice in earth and heaven!

137Moon and the Memories - D'erlanger

beautiful song with church rhyme and march drum beats in the promotional video - ronluna

138Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd
139Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Well, I must say I find it rather disturbing that on a list titled greatest rock ballads that bands such as Mettalica and Slipknot, who clearly belong under the category of Heavy Metal, would be so far ahead of Lynryd Skynyrd, who are undoubtedly one of rocks all time greatest bands, and with one of rocks all time greatest ballads, from the beautiful slide guitar to the melancholy lyrics to the solo to end all solos. I beg of anyone who calls themselves a fan of rock music, a fan of the electric guitar, a fan of music in general to vote for this wonderful song

How is this not in the top 10 minimum?

Freebird, this should be in the top 10 of all time, it's an great combination of Piano, Guitar and drums for a length of time which is difficult to do.

140Love of a Lifetime - Firehouse

I like every music genre but for me firehouse own ballads spot they are the best Metallica is for metal Guns N' Roses is for blues rock etc.

One of my all time favorites. Firehouse has several great tunes that can easily please many generations. Definite "A"
