Added DiffLines:

* Music/IronMaiden has "Wasting Love" (the closest they got to a ballad), "Journeyman" (their first acoustic track), and "Empire of the Clouds" (an [[EpicRocking 18-minute long]] piano-driven song).

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih61MJ72v1Y Hello]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWioxDzDUpc My Immortal]]" by {{Evanescence}}, although the radio edition of the latter (arguably their second most well known song) ends off with a harder sound. (Link to the album version for that reason).

* The Music/FooFighters have many. The very first was "Big Me" (which causes some MoodWhiplash on the album it's on), and then come "Walking After You", "Aurora", "Tired Of You", "Stranger Things Have Happened", [[DistinctDoubleAlbum the entire second disk of]] ''In Your Honor''...

* TypeONegative with Can't Lose You. Aside for a small pace-setting intro, it fails to break out into the bands usual rockin' guitars and shouting, (or obnoxious sex noises).

* Music/StrappingYoungLad were mostly known for super-heavy [[DeathMetal Death]] [[IndustrialMetal Industrial]] [[ThrashMetal Thrash]] [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly Metal]], but then there are "Two Weeks", "Almost Again", and "Polyphony", which basically qualify as straight-up ballads.

* Early on, gentle FaithNoMore songs were pretty rare. The early acoustic instrumental "Jim" seemed to have been included for the sake of this trope. Ditto "Edge of the World", a piano ballad written from the point of view of a [[ComedicSociopathy paedophile]]. Later on they got pretty eclectic and juxtaposed heavy rock numbers such as "The Gentle Art of Making Enemies" and "Cuckoo for Caca" with gentle numbers such as "Take This Bottle" and "Just a Man". They even had a hit with a cover of Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores' "Easy".

* Music/TheOcean has a soft ballad about Galileo right in the middle of their progressive metal album.---
* "Misguided Ghosts" by ''Music/{{Paramore}}'' is a soft, slow acoustic number, which makes it a stark contrast to the rest of "Brand New Eyes", which consists of loud, aggressive songs (and more than a few {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}es).
