So, what would you say the greatest stadium rock/power ballads are?
Those songs that stop a croud in their bounce and urge them to pull out a lighter and wave it above their head to the music as it stirs their heart strings.

Don't Stop being crazy by Helloween is pretty good. But man, power metal is lame and then there is power ballads which is a whole new level of lame... and I love it.

Well, because they're pretty damn hard rockers. Power ballads are set over slow beats and generally rely on chords more than riffs. Often have pianos thrown in too.

Yes!
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
