The story behind " When The Children Cry " is about the orphans that left behind wars.

You , Zachary, would know that if your a huge fan.

Yeah...

The real reason Mike Tramp wrote annoying stuff like that is that he was so good looking he didn't need to be in a band to get chicks. Bastard.

Stryper - Honestly

Mr Big - To Be With You

These are probably the only ones I'd agree with so far in this thread. 

Until 'Lady,' though, every single Stryper ballad is atrocious. And I never liked 'To be with you' one little bit. My mind was truly blown the day I found out it was a "hair band" ballad, after assuming it was some pop/reggae act for years upon years. 

All the others I quite like. 'When the children cry' is painful, lyrically, but I actually like the song. 

I feel like a lot of this thread will come down to what people are sick of hearing repeatedly, whilst not always being about whether the song was awful or not... imo. ;)

I think I've mentioned my distain for "Poison" several times, so I have to add "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" to this thread.

Nothing anybody mentions in this thread will be worse than this atrocity. I even felt a bit nauseous typing the title.

Don’t care it’s still a track I can’t listen to and yes I am a huge fan.

I have to confess I love a good ballad. A few have been overplayed for me, but there are some I will never tire of, like:

Love Bites by Def Leppard

Is this Love by Whitesnake

Don't Close Your Eyes by Kix

18 and Life by Skid Row

Beggars and Thieves by Beggars and Thieves

Fly High Michele by Enuff Z'Nuff

Fly to the Angels by Slaughter

Free by Stryper

Non-Stop to Nowhere by Faster Pussycat

Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses

(Sorry bout hijacking the thread and turning it into ballads I love 😆)

Yeah mate, like I said above, there's only two songs I don't like so far in this thread. Fact of the matter is, as much as pop music rightly so has a bad rap, it's very unlikely that a bad ballad from a good band is going to be selected as a single.

And they are often the gateway drug to the heavier stuff. I remember when I first heard Sweet Child O Mine I just could not believe what my 11 year old ears were hearing, so I bought Appetite for Destruction and when Welcome to the Jungle started up... oh man.

I love a ballad.
Always thought WASP were surprisingly good at them.
Gotthard knew they made killer ballads
Twisted Sister never really managed to nail them, but I didn't hate theirs

I like everything mentioned here.
The only really popular ballad that comes to mind that I never really took to is Fly High Michelle.

Thanks man.  Because of this post, now I'm nauseous, too.  What a horrible song.

    • This is from Simon Daniels personal Facebook page: I never post about internal affairs on social media, but since we are being brutally attacked by Steve Lynch, Forgive me for being forced to lower myself to this level, but I see no other way to defend ourselves at this point. We were made equal partners with equal rights by Steve Lynch in 2014. In the last nine years, he loved us for what we did until he decided to quit and leave us high and dry in 2019 including Randy. He waited for Randy to pass to terminate our work for no other reason than to harm us. I’m not gonna elaborate more. Not up for discussion.. We’re not looking for any drama on line and let the legal process which was initiated by Steve Lynch days after Randy’s passing take it’s course. Blessings   Also, in a question from someone as to are they still allowed to use the name and perform the songs now there are no originals left, he said yes as anyone can perform those songs (no mention of the name usage) live, but that they are now performing 80% new material on stage these days. If that is not reason enough to not see a band called Autograph, I dunno what is. I get someone like David Lee Roth would not wanna perform Sammy era VH songs, but if you go out there under the name Autograph, regardless of who is in the band, you have to accept that fans wanna hear the classics, not the new stuff most people have never even heard. Imagine Def Leppard going out on tour and only performing stuff released after Sparkle lounge.
    • USA Holland should be interesting 
    • The song is just ok. I will give the rest of the record a shot but the single sounds way too symphonic for me. I agree with the others, this is not Revolution Saints. It should have some other name or be a Deen solo release. I don't care for the engineering on this song either, it sounds muddy to me. C.H.
    • Yes! Finally a big pair of wings on the front cover.
    • Video for 'Adrian'.    
    • Geoff on cock, of course. 
    • With nothing on the horizon for the remainder of the year, my final list for 2022 is as follows.  1. Avantasia - A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society  2. Threshold - Dividing Lines 3. Battle Beast – Circus Of Doom 4. Soilwork – Övergivenheten 5. Blind Guardian – The God Machine 6. Ghost – Impera 7. Gunshine – Gunshine 8. Slash - 4 9. Skillet – Dominion 10. Ronnie Atkins – Make It Count
