What do you think is the best rock ballad? Just so you get an idea of what kinds I'm talking about:

One last breath - Creed ( even though the guy looks like a complete pussy douche in the video )

Here without you - 3 doors down

Fade to black - Metallica.

I personally think fade to black is the best. Go!

edit: Beat me to it you bastard!

Creed...

...3 doors down? Rock? Rock ballads?

No Savatage...no Queensryche...not even any Avantasia??

I quit this message board. Seriously.

You people call yourselves guitarists.


I'm not allowed to like a song?
Go away. I don't listen to much rock anyway, I listen to classical and Death Metal.

wait....i'm confused. so, you dont listen to much music in the "rock" genre, but feel able enough/believe you have enough knowledge of the genre that warrants a thread about the "best ballad" of the genre. that is similar to me making a thread on the most technically skilled classical composer.....even though i know barely anything about that musical genre.

just for clarifications sake.

I made this thread so I could get some good answers to download new songs..

But all I get is douchebags acting tough behind a keyboard. Meh. I just think most of you need to stop being so uptight about everything, it's just a question jeez.

well, i was asking for clarification, not sure how i was "acting tough behind a keyboard". putting that first part in your OP would have been very helpful, and would have gotten better responses to begin with.

and also, acting like a "tough douchebag" behind a keyboard was that thread with that "cory" kid and facebook messages.

edit: and i'm sorry if any misunderstandings were had on my part. i did not try to come off as i may have. the internet, unfortunately, does not convey specific diction/implied meanings.

Yeah I know I wasn't calling you the douchebag, just the guys who make fun of people because they like a certain song, so what if they like it?

Back to the intended topic ¬_¬ How about Seize the Day or I Wont See You Tonight (Pt. 1) by Avenged Sevenfold?

I'm not a rock fan so here are some metal suggestions:

Dream Theater - Through Her Eyes
Dream Theater - Spirit Carries On
Dream Theater - Hallow Years
Dream Theater - Another Day
Sonata Arctica - Tallulah
Sonata Arctica - Last Drop Falls
Sonata Arctica - Shamandalie
Opeth - Face of Melinda
Opeth - Benighted
Opeth - Harvest
Opeth - Patterns in the Ivy
Andromeda - Castaway
Andromeda - Two Is One
Adagio - Promises


This could take all day...pretty much anything by Pagan's Mind, Beyond Twilight has a bunch of good ones as does Circus Maximus. Any and all power/progressive metal band will have a few great ballads per album.

Jackson Randy Rhoads V with Floyd Rose
