    I'd say...
    The Beatles
    Iron Maiden
    Grateful Dead
    Megadeth
    Nine Inch Nails
    Ozzy

    I'd like many other bands but they aren't realistic...
    PIG
    Pop Will Eat Itself
    Faith No More
    Depeche Mode
    Dream Theater (with Mike Portnoy)

    One.

    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!

    ZZ Top would make a cool pin.

    Blues, women, hot rods.... what's not to love?

    At least the music is already out there in one pin!

    The Ramones!

    #5 2 years ago

    Slayer
    Motorhead
    Megadeth
    Six Feet Under

    #6 2 years ago

    Billy Idol ...... not a band but some pretty good songs ....... prob not enough to warrant a pin though. What about a pin with a compilation of 80's rock/punk etc

    #7 2 years ago

    The question isn't how many deserve a pin, it's how many will get a pin. To me the band is kind of irrelevant as long as it's a good pin. Never thought I'd own a pin based on the band Metallica, but it's one of the best pins made in the last several years.

    #8 2 years ago

    The Who deserve a pin based on their main catalogue of music.

    Jimmy Buffett could be a pretty cool theme as well.

    Two words....PINK FLOYD

    #10 2 years ago

    Motörhead

    #11 2 years ago

    With Spooky releasing both Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper pins, they absolutely HAVE to release an Ozzy pin. It just makes too much sense. Other than that, Iron Maiden is another obvious choice.

    Led Zeppelin
    Rush
    Nirvana
    Pink Floyd
    Jimi Hendrix
    The Doors
    U2
    The Police
    Van Halen
    Daft Punk

    #13 2 years ago

    Justin Bieber!

    Of course, I envision something like BOP, where the entire goal of the game is putting balls in the face.

    Callouts like: "Put your balls in his face! He likes it!"

    I'm joking, of course.

    Quoted from gtxjoe:

    Led Zeppelin
    Rush
    Nirvana
    Pink Floyd
    Jimi Hendrix
    The Doors
    U2
    The Police
    Van Halen
    Daft Punk

    This list exactly.

    Black Sabbath

    #16 2 years ago

    ICP

    #17 2 years ago

    I don't know about anyone else but I'd really like a rap/hip hop pin. I'd shell out an embarrassing amount of money for a Stern Wu Tang Clan Super LE

    #18 2 years ago

    Blue Oyster Cult...looking gor some "Reaper" multiball...followed by some building smashing of Godzilla.

    #19 2 years ago

    None. Let's get off the bandwagon (pun intended) and start making some new, original games. We have enough music themed games with the roughly same layout. Time to go back to original titled games. Think about it - WW, TOM, BBB, MM ... some of the best games. No music.

    #20 2 years ago

    OZZY

    #21 2 years ago

    INXS for sure.

    #22 2 years ago

    Iron maiden
    Black Sabbath
    Pink Floyd
    Queen

    I love this list. Forgive me, but I would actually add Coldplay to it. I know. I know, something is wrong with me, but I would buy it.

    Van Halen SLE

    some great call outs by the man himself:

    #25 2 years ago

    love coldplay but I don't think they would be good in pinball

    #26 2 years ago

    I've given up on a Kajagoogoo LE.

    #27 2 years ago

    OZZY
    SCORPIONS
    VAN HALEN
    IRON MAIDEN
    maybe Chili peppers and Priest

    #28 2 years ago

    Van Halen
    Ozzy

    #29 2 years ago

    What about Ryan Adams?

    #31 2 years ago

    Not my cup of tea but I think Slipknot would be a great candidate. Also Nine Inch Nails - how cool would a great industrial theme be?

    #32 2 years ago
    Quoted from PSU14:

    What about Ryan Adams?

    Is that Bryans brother? LOL

    #33 2 years ago

    Dave Matthews Band
    Tenacious D
    Blues Brothers
    Merle Haggard
    The Knife
    Anamanaguchi
    Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
    Sex Bob-omb
    Brian Setzer Orchestra
    Soggy Bottom Boys
    Run DMC
    Johnny Cash
    TLC
    Beastie Boys

    I just want some different genres of music pins.

    #34 2 years ago

    I think you could do some really fun and interesting stuff in a GWAR pin. Wouldn't be great for a major Stern release, but a boutique like Spooky could do a great job and sell 500 units pretty easy I'd assume.

    Not a band with a very large following, but the odditity of the theme would likely stretch beyond "fans" of the band.

    Would likely be a very affordable license as well.

    #35 2 years ago

    NWA
    EAZY-E
    SNOOP DOG

    #36 2 years ago
    Quoted from BeaglePuss:

    With Spooky releasing both Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper pins, they absolutely HAVE to release an Ozzy pin.

    Dealing with Sharon would likely be a complete nightmare. I don't see this ever being worth the trouble.

    #37 2 years ago

    My list would be below and I think all of them could be successful pins.

    Led Zeppelin
    Beatles
    Jimi Hendricks
    Queen
    Beastie Boys

    Not sure why but I think a Beastie Boys pin could turn out killer. The other 4 are obvious choices if the someone can afford the license. There's a lot of other bands that I really like but I just don't see them having mass appeal enough to have a pin or I just don't think the music fits pinball that well.

    If only for the magnet tech section in the service manual.

    Tenacious D could be a really entertaining game, especially if Jack and Kyle were down for doing custom voice work. Too many band suggestion pins are just "I love this band, give me a pinball jukebox with them in it". The D has a lot of potential for 'story' and humor that really helps a cohesive pinball game come together.

    #41 2 years ago

    Well if Aerosmith, Rob Zombie, and Alice Cooper can get pins I don't think anything's off the table....

    Yep. Good point.

    I vote an "Ozzy's Boneyard" pin after his Sirius Channel. It's preset #1 in my car.

    #43 2 years ago

    Realistically I think Iron Maiden will get one.

    It would be nice to see a music pin that wasn't rock themed, a Wu-Tang Clan one would be amazing.

    #44 2 years ago

    Triple play field design for Earth, Wine and Fire.

    Make. It. Happen.

    #45 2 years ago

    DEVO, Oingo Boingo,Janes Addiction, B-52's
    80's new wave needed a list.

    SHIT yeah, like this one In fact, what about a School of Rock pin?

    #48 2 years ago

    I'd say The Red Hot Chili Peppers would be a solid move. They are still going strong after more than 25 years and nearly everyone knows at least one of their songs.

    #49 2 years ago

    Intersect success, demographics, and pinball-appropriate genre and you get:

    Beatles
    Led Zeppelin
    Pink Floyd
    Queen
    U2
    (Bon Jovi) I can't see this one
    Prince
    Van Halen

    Or maybe I am incorrectly omitting a possible juggernaut:
    Garth Brooks(?)

    #50 2 years ago

    Led Zeppelin
    Jimi Hendrix
    Van Halen
    Motorhead
    Iron Maiden
    Grateful Dead
    Michael Jackson

    I'd be seriously interested in any of those
