Quoted from jarjarisgod:
Finally... A new pin that I have zero interest in buying!
Hah - agreed. I have absolutely no interest in that theme. They don't have the wide appeal that the Stones or Elvis have.
I think music pins only work when the artists are popular outside their normal genre of fans. As an example, I'm not a huge rock'n roll fan, but I like Elvis. I'm not really a country person but Johnny Cash was superb. Even hardcore metalheads will admit to liking a few Michael Jackson tracks. I don't even know anyone who listens to AC/DC or could name any of their songs, and I grew up while they were in their prime.
Rolling Stones were a safe bet but the game blows, AC/DC would have to be a hell of a game.
I'm not saying they're bad, I'm saying that their music isn't nearly as well identified by the wider crowd as Elvis and the Stones, and that would hurt the appeal of the pin (if indeed it is the next one, and it might not be). Even my 9 year old nephew knows a couple of Elvis tracks.
Actually a Michael Jackson pin would be cool. Have an array of eddy sensors to replicate the pavement special effect in the Billie Jean video. Edit: that would be one of the coolest things ever, I need to patent things before talking about them
