    IMHO, it is time. I often turn down the volume of my rock pins and blast The Ramones for what I feel is a superior experience.

    #2 81 days ago

    I wanna be sedated!

    #3 81 days ago

    I would be interested in a Ramones pinball if done right.

    #4 81 days ago

    Thought that I would be the first to bring this back in this thread...

    https://www.pinballnews.com/learn/ramones/index.html

    Looks great to me!

    #5 81 days ago

    It would would look great between ACDC and my 20th anniversary tour poster

    #6 81 days ago

    While I think it would be cool, I would want a Rush pin first.

    #7 81 days ago

    Road To Ruin LE would be awesome.
    *Pinhead* multiball!

    #8 81 days ago

    Yes. I would be scared that the machine wouldn't do them justice, but yes. We need a good The Ramones pin.

    #9 81 days ago
    Quoted from Rum-Z:

    I wanna be sedated!

    Right cause that’s the only ramones song

    #10 81 days ago

    Would sell tons. Dirty Donny art style.

    #11 81 days ago

    YES!! I'm all in. Seen them on there last tour, best concert I've ever been too. Let me know where to send my money.

    I'm kind of partial to "Beat on the Brat" with a baseball bat!

    #13 81 days ago

    Soooo.....many great songs and to many to list. There the kings of two minute songs......, which probably would mean short ball times too.....LOL.

    How about Spooky doing the theme? It seems like it could be in their wheelhouse for demand and possibly licensing cost?

    #15 81 days ago

    Will never happen,
    But would be so damn good.
    Retheme Centaur.
    Way better than Beat the Meatles

    #16 81 days ago

    That picture and reflection turned out way better that I expected.

    #17 81 days ago

    I'm into it! All ramones songs are good pinball songs.

    Super LE with leather cab

    Marky doing callouts.

    People whining about how "unpunk" $9,000 pinball machines are.

    A bunch of dead Ramones wives reaping the spoils.

    Pretty much every bar in NYC would get one.

    #18 81 days ago

    Saw them play at a college kegger in Grinnell Iowa back in 78 or 79. I wasn't supoosed to get in (show was for the college students only) so I had to stand outside and keep asking girls to get me in as their little brother until someone finally said yes.

    Crazy days

    #19 81 days ago

    Love the Ramones and I'd be in. But a Clash machine would be my dream.

    #20 81 days ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    It's so unpunk! That's what makes it so punk.

    #21 81 days ago

    Terry.....you rebel !!! Lol

    #22 81 days ago

    Absolutely! Ramone’s music works very well for playing pinball .

    #23 81 days ago

    Always loved the Live stuff more then the slower studio versions. The "Ramones Loco Live" from 1991 I think it was is the best.

    John

    #24 81 days ago

    Love the Ramones. They truly deserve their own game.
    "It's alive" is such an awesome live record...

    #25 81 days ago

    I'm torn on this.
    Best band ever. Brings back great memories.
    But.....
    Probably not enough of a wide appreciation, most folks just won't get it. And it seems sort of over-commercial for a band that I love partly because no one else in my High School had a clue. Although using Ramones music in an exercise bike commercial probably irreparably broke that barrier already. Man I hate hearing Ramones music in commercials.

    This would only be done right if John Holmstrom designed the art:

    #28 80 days ago

    How about instead of “they” should make it, WE should make it!

    #29 80 days ago

    Is 30 songs to much of a reach?

    Blitzkrieg Bop
    Beat on the Brat
    Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue
    I Don't Wanna Go Down to the Basement
    53rd & 3rd

    #30 80 days ago

    Single player game, ball never stops, even a drain puts its right back into play

    #31 80 days ago

    Absolutely! Hung with the boys at practice,
    Late nights in Uniondale mini cinema, and Nathans for Pinball and video.
    Miss those days...way too many libations!
    Ramones and pinball are like peanut butter and jelly.

    Levi is right again!

    Ramones (still) Rule!

    #34 80 days ago

    Never really liked them but a btter idea than 99% of other bands.

    #35 80 days ago

    Ramones, to me, just IS pinball playing music. This, plus all the great hand drawn art over the years is a perfect storm for a great pin.

    Machine needs to be fast and loud, just like it's namesake.

    Gimme gimme gimme shock, er, pinball treatment!

    #36 80 days ago

    One of my all time favorite quotes comes from Joey Ramone when a journalist asked why their songs were so short. He answered, "They're not short, we just play them faster."

    Funny, but 100% true.

    The ball is wild and so are the Ramones; two burrs on a mule's tail.

    #37 79 days ago

    Just found this list in my desk drawer of my top ten favorite Ramones songs. This is from like ten years ago and I think it would still be the same today, so I'd love to see these incorporated into the game play.

    #1 Pinhead
    #2 Mama's Boy
    #3 Born to die in Berlin
    #4 Somebody put something in my drink.
    #5 Havana affair
    #6 Blitzkrieg bop
    #7 Psycho therapy
    #8 Beat on the brat
    #9 Today you love, tomorrow the world.
    #10 I don't wanna go down to the basement.

    Thoughts?

    John

    #38 79 days ago

    I'd be totally down with a Ramones pin.

    Took my kids to The Stone Pony a couple summers ago to see CJ Ramone open for The Aquabats. It was a blast.

    #39 79 days ago

    We actually met CJ just before the concert, he was hanging out in the bar next door to the concert hall and we recognized him and got his autograph on our Acid Eaters CD jacket. Always come prepared to any concert with a marker.....LOL.

    Would be a great first Beatles retheme!

    #41 79 days ago

    It does have the same number of letters in the title....

    John

    #42 79 days ago

    Will it have a mouse inside an aquarium and a rock-o-meter? (not poking fun, love the ramones)

    Great list.

    I'd add:
    Too tough to die
    It's a long way back
    I believe in miracles
    All's quiet on the eastern front
    Cretin hop

    #44 79 days ago
    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    John

    Yes! This would be a perfect retheme! Love the way The Beatles pin plays and may end up getting one eventually, but The Ramones handling the tunes would put it right over the top.

    #46 79 days ago

    I can provide cabinet work for retheme cabinet. And would love to do so.

    It's not their song, but I always loved their cover of 'Surfin' Bird'.

    So make one!!, You already have a great designer on staff, you certainly have access to parts, you know a few guys who can code it, you have mechanical and electrical guys at your disposal, and you already built one machine, under the Day One Pinball banner. You certainly know a few companies would could do assembly for you, but most most important, who else besides you could bring this game to life with the appropriate love and dedication?

    Enough talk, time to take control and make your dream theme happen!!! -- just don' take pre-orders.

    Yeah I think Terry should certainly ruin his successful business and in fact his entire life by deciding to get into the pinball machine manufacturing game!
