In the interest of pointing out a few good ballads that might not be as obvious as others:









This is a song by Nine Inch Nails, so I think it qualifies as a "rock" ballad:

Aw fudge.

I love "rock ballads" so much the first that popped into my mind was this



The desert is a true treasure for him who seeks refuge from men and the evil of men.
In it is contentment
In it is death and all you seek
(Quoted from "The Bleeding of the Stone" Ibrahim Al-Koni)

Ina Gadda Da Vida.
Ding... Ding ...Ding we have a winner! I've even got an album that is virgin... the cellophane is intact.
Stairway to Heaven is a contender but Iron Butterfly for the win. The drum solo rules.

This one even says ballad in the title of the song.

I guess it qualifies:
