Blue Öyster Cult. Whenever they come on the radio I’m disappointed — unless it’s (Don’t Fear) The Reaper, which is truly classic.
Nada Surf, Popular
Great band, novelty song.
If you bought Orlean's Waking and Dreaming because of "Still the One" you got a rude awakening. They were a white boy funk band.
K.T. Tunstale. " Big Black Horse " is minor key hard folk, the rest of the album is major key Beatlesque pop. Good, but not at all like Horse.
Mr big and damn Yankees had a strategy of ballads for the radio play and hard rock albums.

That's a Neil Diamond hit too (not sure if he wrote it)
I went to a Catholic boarding HS, early '70's, and you develop thick skin if you want to survive, folks make fun of each other 24/7...
So I was a fat guy ( still am, but wtf...) and our Class President ( who was actually very cool, good guy)
Used to tease me, from this song:
" He ain't my brother, he's heavy!"
For the win!
I was an Elvin Bishop nut ( actually all things ' Southern Rock' or Country Rock...) back in the day and had a few early albums.
When " Fooled Around..." came out I was like " WTF is this S**t?!?!" ( of course WTF didn't exist yet)
Nice guitar work from EB and Johnny Vernazza ( sp?)
Yea,well,they own houses because of it.
I like the song- nice romantic ballad
Robin Z. has a helluva voice! Wish I had range like that!
I imagine a good number of ballads from hard rock groups make this list.
I actually avoided listening to Nada Surf for years because of that song, which was a big mistake. Let Go is one of my favorite albums of all time.
I sort of second BOC. I'd only ever heard their 3 big radio hits but came across a "best of" cd a couple of years back and was happy, hoping for more of the same. My word the rest of the stuff on that cd is complete drivel. I mean bad. No I can't do any better but damn.
Grateful Dead, IMO the best example...
In the late 70's and early 80's was a group named TEAZE from Windsor Ontario.
This was their biggest hit...
This is what they really were...
I saw them 3 or 4 times live and they NEVER played Sweet Misery live.
Aerosmith. When they stopped writing their own songs in the late 80's, they got very popular. Not really Aerosmith IMHO.
Jefferson Airship - "We Built This City On Rock And Roll."
Grace even SOUNDED embarrassed to be singing it!
"Caught up in the hoopla," maybe the worst lyric in history!
No Rain by Blind Melon. At least the tempo and groove. Most of the other stuff was a bit more rocking, jam-bandy kind of thing. That tune really did have a pretty riff and groove to it, I don't care how overplayed it became.
Enter Sandman...by Pat Boone.
