First one that comes to mind:

 

Babylon AD - So Savage the Heart

 

I'll have to think of two more.

 

That one was also one of my all-time faves ever. I had a CD single of that before I ever found the album and played it to absolute death.

I was gonna start a new thread on the worst ballads, but a quick search revealed I completely forgot about this one. I guess we can migrate the conversation to here. 

Anyone have any more additions?

Heh, I know why you pick the songs you did--you've mentioned it before--but I just think the "tried and true" approach, for Strangeways, was better.

I definitely don't but most Strangeways songs are good.

There are probably a few cringey ones around, lyric-wise.
But for me, the only bad ballad is a boring, poorly written ballad.
I guess by definition, they tend to be a bit cheesey - sob stories, broken hearts, desperatelonging etc.

Except maybe some like Jackyl's The Secret Of The Bottle

By far the best song this band ever recorded. Great band, but this song flattens it's competition.

I respectfully disagree. Nothing touches Goodnight LA in terms of passion and atmosphere....it's also possibly Brocks best ever vocal. 

There is something truly special about that intro and verse. The way it builds.

It's a classic.....bit like the Cars 'Drive'. just a timeless ballad.

a definite top 10 ever for me

This is getting weird. We need to stop agreeing on things.

one of the first that came to mind:

 

But there are many and to everyone's chagrin that "I Saw Red" song is dog shite.

Here's a few more that tickle me:
