123 Was It a Dream? - 30 Seconds to Mars
124 A Modern Myth - Thirty Seconds to Mars
125 Alibi - 30 Seconds to Mars
126 Vermillion, Pt. 2 - Slipknot

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

127 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.

I love this amazing song

128 Right Now - Van Halen
129 My Immortal - Evanescence

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

130 Forever and One - Helloween
131 Oh My Love - John Lennon
132 Finale - L'Arc~en~Ciel
133 Sad Song - D'erlanger
134 Jane Says - Jane's Addiction
135 Wild Is the Wind - Bon Jovi
136 The Spirit Carries On - Dream Theater
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
139 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

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"
