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 The Village of Dwarves - Rhapsody
7 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

You're just a dick to nightwish m8 - Mikbiter15

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 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

15 Heroes of Our Time - DragonForce
16 Hold Your Ground - Gamma Ray
17 Fury of the Storm - DragonForce
18 Forever and One (Neverland) - Helloween
19 Hold Me in Your Arms - Helloween
20 Anything My Momma Don't Like - Helloween
