Best Rock Ballads

The Contenders: Page 7

121 The Sound Of Silence - Disturbed The 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

122 I Can't Tell You Why - Eagles I Can't Tell You Why - Eagles
123 The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix The Wind Cries Mary  - Jimi Hendrix
124 Only Women Bleed - Alice Cooper Only Women Bleed - Alice Cooper
125 Was It a Dream? - 30 Seconds to Mars Was It a Dream? - 30 Seconds to Mars
126 A Modern Myth - 30 Seconds to Mars A Modern Myth - 30 Seconds to Mars
127 Alibi - 30 Seconds to Mars Alibi - 30 Seconds to Mars
128 Vermillion Pt. 2 - Slipknot Vermillion Pt. 2 - Slipknot

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

129 Ordinary World - Duran Duran Ordinary 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.

This song has reality. It has stuck in my heart deeply.

137 Moon and the Memories - D'erlanger

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

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

140 Love of a Lifetime - Firehouse Love 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"
