Power Ballads of the 80s

Back in the 1980s, heavy metal and hard rock bands were on top of the charts. Their music was fast, upbeat and aggressive, featuring elements of rock, punk and glam, but also a more polished production value commonly associated with pop. These bands were increasingly popular, and their music was exposed to wider audiences. In order to appeal to a wide range of fans and listeners, artists and record producers felt the need to expand the musical repertoire of these bands, by introducing an alternative to their fast, hard-hitting sound. By the second half of the 80s, it became in fact popular for bands to add a “power ballad” to their albums, a track that slows down and brings a mellow vibe to the records, in order to break the flow of fast and heavy rock and roll songs dominating the playlist. Bands such as Skid Row pioneered the power ballad concept with tracks such as “I Remember You”, a romantic song that still features a solid rock core, while remaining emotional and slow paced. Bands such as Extreme brought the concept of power ballad to the next level their hit “More than words”, an acoustic song which became one of the most distinctive songs of that era.
