Get out the lighters.  What is your choice for the worst power ballad ever? My vote goes to;
Poison - Every Rose Has It's Thorn

Just this morning after I dropped my 9 yr old off at school, at 7am mind you, "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue came on, and I almost wrecked turning it off.  That gets my vote.  Or "Sweet Child of Mine', I never did like GnR.

LOL

Speaking of GnR, my vote would go to November Rain as the absolute worst power ballad.  There are few bands taht I dislike as much as GnR.  They are only equaled in their badness by Aerosmith.

How about that "Can You Take Me Higher" by whoever wrote it?  (Talking the 80s hair band song, not the one by Creed.)

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

The only purpose of the power ballad is to have one distinguishing track per album.  Without Cemetery Gates and Planet Caravan, you'd never know which Pantera album you were listening to.  TeddyR

But if I have to choose, I'd say Miles Away by Winger.  Or anything Winger has done for that matter.  Haha.

Oh man, those are all my favorite songs!   TeddyR  That newer Aerosmith stuff is pretty horrible though.  They make Bon Jovi sound positively heavy in comparison.  And they're about my parent's age, and they're singing love songs to teenagers?  Sorta creepy.  There's some song by Cheap Trick they always play on the Arena Rock station on my TV, it's just so sickeningly sweet I have to turn it off every time.  No idea what the name of the song is though.

Painful indeed, almost tearful.  Almost as bad as a guy sounding castrated while singing...

Anything already mentioned can go. They play this crap all the time at work and it makes me want to hurt someone, though the only thing worse is the hip-hop rap crap, usually its one or the other.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
