* The Dillinger Escape Plan have included a few more accessible songs off their more recent albums. They're still very experimental and innovative but make better use of their singer's clean vocal range (something their first singer didn't have.) Tracks like [[VideoGame/WWEVideoGames Unretrofied]], Black Bubblegum & Milk Lizard sound akin to something a more agressive Music/FaithNoMore might write.

* Glassjaw, normally an extremely loud and aggressive band, has two of these songs on their [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Mark El Mark]] Digital EP. "''The Number No Good Things Can Come Of''", a piano and drums piece, and "''Oxycodone''", a Lounge-sounding tune with the lead vocalist singing in improvisation.

* The last two tracks off of the album ''Abducted'' by DeathMetal band, Hypocrisy, are mellow [[Music/PinkFloyd Pink Floyd-esque]] ProgressiveRock tracks. This is in sharp contrast to the rest of the album and their discography.

* Music/AvengedSevenfold has a few of them, particularly "Seize the Day" and "So Far Away". An early example of this is "I Won't See You Tonight Part 2" from ''Waking The Fallen'', when they were still a metalcore band. Also, we can't talk about Music/AvengedSevenfold without mentioning [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyYazI3B09A Dear God]], which is a straight up country balled. From ''Hail to the King'', we've got the blues-ballad "Acid Rain".

But the most jarring example is probably "Warmness on the Soul" on their debut album: a sweet love ballad in the middle of a hardcore punk album where all the other songs are screamed.

* {{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).
