We're really getting down to the wire now! Rules again:


DO NOT VOTE FOR ANY SONG YOU DON'T BELIEVE QUALIFIES AS A POWER BALLAD, EVEN IF YOU LOVE IT


VOTE FOR NO MORE THAN FOUR SONGS FROM THE SIXTEEN IN THE POLL



This one's going to be difficult. Four is a tiny number to vote for. Not sure if we'll have a top 10, top 5, top 3 next. This is progressing very quickly.

I don`t think either VH/Sammy song is a power ballad. They`re both wuss-rock, and that`s a very different genre. Nor is the Black Crowes number - that`s just a really good slowish song.

Incredible ballad and song writing. An all time classic.

Can’t say that about November Rain which is a bloated POS.

You want a true epic Power Ballad that has a ton of balls? Give Forevermore from Whitesnake listen. It puts that GNR shit to f***ing shame.

I was kinda stunned it was never even a choice in this fun little contest. Probably my all time favorite “Power Ballad"

Axel’s voice is what is so cringe inducing about that song. Musically it has a lot of great qualities......but that voice? Lord.
