** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smUFDvltYrA Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You]]" by Music/LedZeppelin, and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW3nPqPPBDw Heartbreaker]]" by GrandFunkRailroad predate that by a good two years. The Zeppelin is more musically-advanced and influential, but "Heartbreaker" is no less definitive.

* Music/{{Sigh}}'s "Requiem - Nostalgia" could be considered a BlackMetal take on this trope, though by the standards of most other genres it would be too heavy to be considered a ballad, thanks to the MetalScream. It is, of course, subverted in Sigh's inimitable fashion when it [[MoodWhiplash ends]] with a StandardSnippet (Music/FrederykChopin's Minute Waltz, to be precise) overlaid with hundreds of samples of giggling babies.

* Music/TheDillingerEscapePlan have a few songs that could be considered their equivalent of this trope, although most of them are pretty heavy by the trope's standards. "Widower" is probably the best example.

** As for the rest of the Who's catalogue, "[[Music/{{Quadrophenia}} Love, Reign O'er Me]]" could also be considered an early precursor to this trope, although "Behind Blue Eyes" predates it by two years.

* Music/{{Nickelback}} - "Never Gonna Be Alone" is a classic example. "Far Away" also has many elements of a power ballad (acoustic intro, intensity builds, lyrics about love).

* Firehouse has "Love of a Lifetime", "When I Look Into Your Eyes", and "I Live My Life For You". The last song listed should get mentioned in particular because it was Top 40 hit (#26 to be exact) from a glam metal band. '''In 1995'''; a time when the genre was literally Main/DeaderThanDisco for at least 3 years and the post-[[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]] [[DeadArtistsAreBetter suicide headlines were still going strong]].
