* {{Music/Ministry}} contributed a surprisingly faithful acoustic cover of [[TheGratefulDead "Friend Of The Devil"]] to the compilation ''The Bridge School Concerts, Vol. 1'' - it turns out Al Jourgenson actually has a smooth, pleasant singing voice when he's not [[HarshVocals growling]] and/or running his vocals through distortion and processing.

** Music/{{Californication}} was when they really started to tone things down, with songs such as "Porcelain," "This Velvet Glove" (to an extent), and "Scar Tissue." This was in response to lead singer Anthony Kiedis's desire to focus more on singing rather than his famous rap-yarling.

Added DiffLines:

* Future of the Left, a band known for their aggressive post-hardcore sound and singer Andy Falkous' often darkly funny lyrics, has "French Lessons", a quiet song about love and unhappy marriage. The band's playing is much more subdued on this one, and while Falkous' lyrics are still humorous, the tone much bleaker than it is on their usual songs.

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.
