    Honestly HOW is the Beatles even being mentioned??? There is NOTHING to DO in the game...the music is awesome though I will give you that. I love the Beatles...but the game is boring.

    #10 5 months ago

    OK I added MET and FOO. My bad

    #12 5 months ago

    Beatles added if thats your bag baby...personally I'd rather play Austin Powers.

    I don't like the Beatles music, but that pin is flat out fun and I'd love to have one at home.

    Worst part of the game.

    Quoted from Sandman33:

    You already own an Iromman.

    #15 5 months ago

    Rush, and it isn't close.

    #16 5 months ago

    Im going with Metallica the theme and play both hit well for me. It’s a keeper over here.

    Maiden good layout the music grows on you eventually. I enjoyed babysitting one here for awhile played the snot out of it so I’m good for awhile.

    I still have yet to play one the layout looks awesome seawitch 2.0

    Such a MAJOR improvement to Seawitch.

    #18 5 months ago

    As a music pin fan i have many, but metallica and beatles are my favorites. Beatles is a mode based game, you cant just walk up and play it without understanding what to do.

    #19 5 months ago

    I’d need to have them make a The Tragically Hip machine for MY basement. Probably the only rock band I like enough of their music to be worth my while.

    #20 5 months ago

    Metallica Pro and Elvis is no slouch either

    #22 5 months ago

    None of them. I mostly listen to death/trash/black/ techical speed -metal, so all currently existing music pins are uninteresting imo.

    And no, Metallica and Iron Maiden isn't proper metal to me, more like "pop metal" maybe and don't qualify to being a good music pin worthy of buying.

    #23 5 months ago

    Iron Maiden pro.

    #25 5 months ago

    I have a Foo LE in my basement right now, and it absolutely ties the room together. Wifey and I saw them live in Boston, we had purchased all their albums pre-Spotify days, and the colors in the room itself match that of the game. It's a perfect fit.

    FOO!!!

    #26 5 months ago
    Quoted from Numskul:

    Missed Alice Cooper

    Also Rob Zombie and Primus. There’s also Elvis, DE Guns & Roses, Rolling Stones, Ted Nugent and Bally KISS, but based on OP’s comments about the Beatles pin it seems older style pins are not his thing.

    #27 5 months ago

    Beatles is a great game.

    Much better than bond 60, it’s obvious stablemate.

    #28 5 months ago

    Since I don't have a basement, I guess I don'r need any of them thank goodness.

    #29 5 months ago

    My humble apologies for shitting on the Beatles. I like the music a lot and the game is coded well. I just don't see much to do overall. Perhaps I'm wrong. I will look deeper into it.

    #30 5 months ago

    1A) RUSH

    1B) Iron Maiden

    There is considerable excitement in trying to get the Super Jackpot after the mode ends. Adds a lot!

    #33 5 months ago

    Metallica vs GNR for me. Led Zeppelin close second.

    #34 5 months ago

    For MY basement Scorpions…….. but still waiting
    Existing? Up the Irons! Maiden!!

    #35 5 months ago

    Does Tommy count?

    Nah, Both really good. Side by side best.
    Hard to pick 1, maybe it would be MET

    #37 5 months ago

    i own most of them, honestly they are all great fucking games. id go maiden, metallica, beatles, rush, elvis, ac/dc, data east gnr, kiss, aerosmith, tommy, gnr jjp. haven't played foo fighters or zeppelin enough to rank.

    #38 5 months ago

    Iron Maiden is in my top 3 favorite bands, and also happens to be one of if not the best pinball machine I've yet played. It's a no brsiner for me. Mine is a a Pro, but I'll never get rid of it.

    I enjoy my MET, but IMDN is better.

    #39 5 months ago

    Own AC/DC and MET Pro but when going on location I jump on Maiden. That is just a beast! Love it!
    I hope to get one soon.

    #40 5 months ago

    Apparently Maiden wins slightly above MET. Imagine if Elwin made Metallica instead of IM?

    Quoted from Sandman33:

    They're both not great themes with amazing could so wouldn't make much diff'rence.

    It's the code/rules that make Iron Maiden great. Metallica is also pretty great as is, no need to speculate on what it would be if someone else designed it.

    #43 5 months ago

    My IMDN was a total POS. Broken down more than I was able to play it. It made me quit the enjoyment of fixing up my own games. No mas.

    Sold it and never looked back.

    AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, Beatles, Queen just better overall.

    The best rock pin and it’s not even close is GNR.

    It makes IMDN look like a game of kindergarten tiddly winks.

    Downvote all you want and buy what you like, don’t care. I love my subjective opinion.

    Song choice, light show, layout, band involvement, theme immersion, LCD, sound, artwork and overall JJP finish. Yep. I’ve owned em all.

    #44 5 months ago

    KISS (stern) was the game that got me hooked. Happy to have a prem in the basement. Also have Foo and Maiden. Alice Cooper needs to be added to the list. Love mine.

    Guns
    Hands down
    Iron Maiden 2nd
    Metallica 3rd

    #46 5 months ago

    You forgot Rob Zombie; but it's pretty forgettable. I've owned most of the music pins Maiden has it all. Great loop combos, challenging, decent code, great art, call-outs & the music doesn't start from the beginning when you drain. Great shooter!!

    #47 5 months ago

    I never get tired of my Ac/Dc.

    Did you want the Beatles to hop into a van and fight aliens that are wearing skull masks?

    Shouldn’t a great Rock pin be required to have great music?

    The music alone automatically disqualifies Iron Maiden.

    Add in the satan and Egyptian cartoons on the LCD. Not gonna work for family situations too.

    #50 5 months ago

    I didn't realize how many music themed pins I have. Metallica, AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Rush. I have a Tommy but don't really consider that a music pin though. Tommy would definitely be the first to leave.
