Power ballad

Power ballad is a name given to love songs that were predictably included on heavy metal albums in the 1980s.

The power ballad was frequently slower in tempo and much less aggressive in lyrics than the remaining music on the album. The songs were often crafted in a hope of scoring a Top Forty[?] hit, and were particularly associated with bands in the hair metal genre.
