Best Rock Ballads

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Don't Let It End - Styx
62 Estranged - Guns N Roses

My favourite piece ever! My favourite band ever! Wish it could've been a better place for this song. Thanks for putting it though!

Guns n roses' best song. Die hard Guns N' Roses fans may be the only people who know this song, but those people know what an amazing song this is. Slash's best guitar work is in this song and the lyrics are so emotional. GN'R at its best.

9 minutes of power, emotion and rawness... just very very good. Where is free bird? - nic1997ps3

Awesome song from a awesome band

63 Crying in the Rain - Whitesnake
64 Heartache Every Moment - HIM

I think HIM should be number one, because they write the most beautiful love songs on the planet.. and not just heartache every moment.. every song is kind of a love song and in my opinion that's the main reason for them to be number one!

65 Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison

like dis song too much, itz hyper-awesome, lyrics you can say be the reasn. Dis song if nt on top 3 den the folks clickin on the ''vote'' caption really don know hell about rock ballads...

This song should be number one if you don't think that then your crazy

66 The Unforgiven - Metallica

Best ballad of all time

"The Unforgiven II" is in this list, so the first part should be also there.

Certainly beats Nothing Else Matters.

67 Love Bites - Def Leppard

Seems like there should be ten songs from definitely Leppard that make this list. Love Bites is a classic!

Powerful song a classic of a rock ballads! How this song was just in 63?

68 I Just Can't Stop Loving You - Michael Jackson
69 Ten Years Gone - Led Zeppelin

Well can't say much about it only that it has to be Zeppelin at n#1 and the fact that some crappy bands like aha or xjapan are in the top 100 says it all this list is a pathetic thing made by 12 year olds who don't know anything about what a sensitive ballad means and not just a song to score chicks.. Ten years gone or Wild horses from the stones are the top songs

Did you ever really need somebody & really need 'em bad...
Did you ever really want somebody, the best love you ever had...

Through the eyes an'I sparkle... Senses growing keen...
Taste your love along the way... See your feathers preen...

Changes fill my time baby, that's alright with me...
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be...

I don't know any other song that is able to emotionally move someone as much as ten years gone does.

Can't believe this is not on the list

70 I Remember You - Skid Row

one of the best ballads ever made. Skid Row was a great band when Sebastian Bach was lead singer...

yeah! is a powerful song, the best. skid row rules!!!

Easily should be number one on this list or any. It's got everything... A TRUE ROCK ballad.

This should be number 1

71 The Story - 30 Seconds to Mars

So good song.. deserves to be on this list

72 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls

This song should be so much higher, it is so beautiful, so full of feelings

This is the best song of the best love band I know.

73 Save Me - Queen
74 Yesterday - The Beatles

There is a good reason why this exquisite ballad is the most covered song ever: simplicity. Paul mcCartney, his guitar, and a string quartet. The strings are subtle and not overpowering, as in The Long and Winding Road (thank you Phil Spector), and Paul's voice is so pure. The lyrics are simple and beautiful, everyone can relate to them. If there was ever a truly perfect song, this is it.

one of the saddest song ever. Paul McCartney's voice is so moving. It's my favorite Beatles song.

75 Heaven - Bryan Adams

Awesome song of one of the best singer ever

76 Clair de Lune/Ballerina - Styx
77 Coma White - Marilyn Manson

This is the most beautiful song on this planet.

78 Return to Serenity - Testament

I am disgusted, but not surprised. This isn't best metal bands who made a little babies song, it is best ballads, and this song is 10 times better than all these songs put together ever will be. And where is the legacy? Testament make brilliant ballads. Vote this up from 67th! - gemcloben

79 In The Air Tonight - Phil Collins

That build up... everyone knows this song it's a pure classic

80 Hollow - Pantera
