What makes a song a ballad?
I have always thought a ballad is a song lamenting someone or something. hence me choosing Blood Brothers by Iron Maiden.
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.

I think The Unforgiven by Metallica is the ultimate ''metal ballad''.
Angels Don't Kill by Children Of Bodom is great too. It's kind of like a black metal ballad

Absolutely love that song. Not sure I'd consider it a ballad but if so it would be in my Top 5.

Personally I think Faith No More - Evidence is musical genius and definitely one of my favorite ballads.

Escape from Within from Flotsam & Jetsam would be up there also.

If I had to choose a hair band type song it would be The Price by Twisted Sister. Never a big TS fan but always liked that song
3/3 - Hell Yeah
3/31 - Coal Chamber & Filter
5/16 - Clutch & Mastodon
