Whether you're in the front row of a stadium or just singing along to the radio, there's nothing quite like a power ballad to stir the emotions. These rousing anthems inspire an almost instinctive reaction to punch fists into the air, as you belt out those heartfelt lyrics.

Power ballads are frequently associated with the 1980s, and indeed it helps to have a 1980s-style mane of hair to fling around as you sing, but power ballads aren't confined to one particular decade. And not all of them were released by big name bands, either–some hugely popular power ballads were essentially one-hit wonders.
