Cheesiest Power Metal Songs

The kind of songs people make fun of in power metal. I'm not calling them bad, they are all good songs. But they are the very typical Power metal songs.

The Top Ten

1 Holy Thunderforce - Rhapsody

To be honest, music in their entire discography sounds cheesy and poppy to me. Same for DragonForce. Also, the majority of the songs by Nightwish, Within Temptation and Stratovarius. Half of the Helloween songs. Many songs by Avantasia and Edguy. - Metal_Treasure

Let's be honest though, most power metal bands sound cheesy, but that's the beauty of the genre! They are not afraid to be "cheesy". - Mikbiter15

I don't know how to explain this song! a National Anthem? A Classical era piece? Mamma Mia? WHAT? I just feel strangely happy with the chorus of this song! and yet I laugh at that strange happiness! - Mikbiter15

2 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce
3 My God-Given Right - Helloween
4 Call To Arms - Manowar
5 The Way of the Warrior - HammerFall
6 Amaranth - Nightwish

Oh god, just play the sample - it's so poppy and cheesy that I think it's a crime to consider such songs "metal'. It's a disgrace to metal. - Metal_Treasure

The ck is this? Someone dares to call this song metal?

You're just a dick to nightwish m8 - Mikbiter15

7 The Village of Dwarves - Rhapsody
8 Christmas Spirits - Sonata Arctica
9 Black Ninja - Battle Beast

I disagree, I enjoy this song. I have seen Battle Beast open for Sabaton, and to be honest, I enjoyed it, even when the lyrics don't make sense - Mikbiter15

This isn't only cheesy, it's also very bad - bad written and bad performed. - Metal_Treasure

10 Bye Bye Beautiful - Nightwish

Esp. female vocals are pure pop. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Mirror, Mirror - Blind Guardian
12 Metal Crüe - Sabaton
13 Hunting High and Low - Stratovarius
14 Fury of the Storm - DragonForce
15 Hold Me in Your Arms - Helloween
16 Warriors - Freedom Call

Freedom Call, more like Cheese Call
or Freedom Cheese

I don't think there's a good way to put cheese in their name

17 Eagle Fly Free - Helloween

Especially music to the pre-chorus sounds like a children song - I mean music to the section that stars with this line: "In the sky a mighty eagle..."
It's on the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

18 Heroes of Our Time - DragonForce
19 Hold Your Ground - Gamma Ray
20 Forever and One (Neverland) - Helloween
21 Anything My Momma Don't Like - Helloween
22 Heaven Can Wait - Gamma Ray

The whole song but especially the chorus is very poppy. - Metal_Treasure

23 Lavatory Love Machine - Edguy

This is hard rock and not power metal. - Metal_Treasure

24 Beautiful Lies - Beyond the Black
25 Fall Into the Flames - Beyond the Black
26 Songs of Love and Death - Beyond the Black
27 Escapist - Nightwish
28 Storytime - Nightwish
29 For Evermore - Power Quest
30 Dr. Stein - Helloween
31 Hearts on Fire - Hammerfall
32 I Want Out - Helloween

I want out! to live my life alone! I want out! To live me be! I want out! to do things on my own! I want out! to live my life and to be free! - it can't get more cheesy than this
