    Would you call November Rain a Power Ballad?

    or Sweet Child o Mine for that matter? I say no..

    I would say November Rain is a power ballad except the last 2 minutes of the song, it is a fantastic song. Sweet Child 'o Mine, not a power ballad, still a great song nevertheless.

    Great band though, unfortunately most my peers never listen to this kind of music. Most people my age grew up with Pop and Rap.

    GNR is one of the best acts from the hair metal era which was mostly crappy. I still think Appetite is the best though.

    November Rain yes. One of my favorite songs by GnR.
    Sweet Child Of Mine...no. Good song, but not a power ballad.

    I thought GnR was a very good band...not a great one. I always liked Slash...still do.

    Watch the video and decide.

    I say it is a power ballad. Starts out all slow and finishes with that great solo.

    November Rain came out in the very early '90s and GNR had already been around a while by then. Maybe you're too young to remember? I remember seeing that video for the first time and Slash's solos are forever etched in my brain as the coolest things ever to grace a music video.

    I'd say yes to November Rain being a power ballad.
    Sweet Child of Mine - no.

    Heh. I think I'm too old. I quit listenin' to "today's" radio around '92, and wasn't listenin' all that much then. Who is GNR?

    Ok, I remember Poison's "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" from eatin' dinner in front of my TV during grad school and probably seein' them on MTV or whatever was playin' music vids in '92-'93. I liked that ballad.

    Guns'N'Roses. Don't feel bad, I feel ancient when my coworkers start talking about current movies, tv, and radio since I never participate in those things. The thing is, I'm not much older than them, just weirder.

    Oh wait, you're from Canada eh?. No such thing as a "Hoser Power Ballad", sorry.

    Oookay, then it's not so much the dates of when you actually stopped listening to radio. It's what type of music you were listening to. GNR was HUUUUUUUGGGGE around 1987 and 1988. And even if you just had a little 'rock n roll' in you, you couldn't have missed this heavy metal band. Maybe you were just a 'little bit country'?

    I was certainly "country," but no Marie Osmond, if that's what the hell you're implyin'!

    Ok. Now I know who GNR is. We didn't use these "shortcut" acronyms back in the day. Why? Because there was no need. No one knew what "text-lingo" was, and we could all take the extra seconds to just type it out.
