    Ronnie James Dio certainly deserves his own pin.

    #202 3 years ago

    Grateful Dead. Dark Star mode: all exits close and you just randomly shoot the ball around for 25 minutes.

    #203 3 years ago

    MOTORHEAD
    Misfits/Ramones
    Iron Maiden
    Black Sabbath/Ozzy/Dio
    Monsters of Rock tour-Scorpions, Van Halen,etc.
    80's big hair pin-motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Poison,etc.
    Jimmy Buffet
    Wierd Al
    NHL pin with all heavy metal music like the Pens game I watch on TV or any other hockey arenas.

    #204 3 years ago

    The Eagles, call the machine Hell's a Thaw'in

    I thought you might say "Danzig, M#%erF#%er!"

    #206 3 years ago

    VAN HALEN would be awesome

    #207 3 years ago

    Rush- 2112 LE

    Iron Maiden- Piece of Mind or Number of the Beast LE

    #208 3 years ago

    Split Enz?!?

    How many bands left deserve a pinball theme done of them?

    unfortunately for me, too many...

    #210 3 years ago

    regarding this pic, aren't some of them caracters of Monster Bash?

    #211 3 years ago

    Queen
    The Doors
    Zep
    DEVO
    but I'd settle for a 70s or 80s pop culture theme, with these bands featured in a sound track

    #212 3 years ago

    Iron maiden
    Black sabbath
    Queen

    & Arnold Schwarzenegger themed pin

    Do it !! Get down !! Get to the chopper !!

    -3
    #213 3 years ago

    No Iron Maiden please. Nasal Bruce all over it..........no thanks.........

    #214 3 years ago

    Weird Al Yankovick would make a great family game
    Beastie Boys has a great beat and lots of humor and visuals (and isn't old rock) and would go well with pacing for pinball.
    Beck - especially the more beat driven albums

    Both are on my short list for my own homebrew.

    From the Grung Era
    Nirvana - Great pacing and visuals for a pin
    Sound Garden
    I don't think Pearl Jam has the right tempo/pace for pinball but would listen to it whlie playing.

    80's
    Peter Gabriel

    80's Hair
    Van Halen
    Def Leopard
    ZZ Top

    Rap
    RZA
    Cypress Hill

    And the real surprise fit IMO - just plain Disco, mixed hits from a lot of bands from that time, lots of tempo and beat to drive play plus disco balls!

    #215 3 years ago

    I vote lords of acid crablouse.

    #216 3 years ago

    Going off "Likes" alone it's Pink Floyd for the win

    #217 3 years ago

    With the amount of pinball talk he does Ed Robertson may convince someone for a Bare Naked Ladies pin. Not bashing the guy at all but if it does happen I just want the playfield art to be nothing but naked ladies

    #218 3 years ago

    On a more serious note I would love to see a Rage Against the Machine pin narrated by Zack De La Rocha. While I do like the music I feel I would more enjoy yelling, "F*ck you I won't do what you tell me" every time the game instructed me to shoot a certain shot.

    #219 3 years ago

    Slayer!

    IMG_3359 (resized).JPG

    #220 3 years ago

    The Kinks please. I love me some brothers Davies.

    IMG_7127 (resized).JPG

    #221 3 years ago

    Would buy:

    #222 3 years ago
    Quoted from PinHead2112:

    Here is an idea. So many bands deserve a pinball machine. So maybe someone should make a 'generic' band machine and then license it for different bands. Same play field layout. But different artwork and music to fit said band. Of course they would have to license with each band but would lower production costs by making the same machine with different band themes.

    While this seems like a good idea in concept, when put into practice it would be a cluster of epic proportions. Stern has enough trouble developing code in a timely manner-- asking them to do a generic band with custom playfield pieces and sounds would simply never get done. You'd have a very expensive codeless brick sitting in your game room...

    #223 3 years ago

    Milli Vanilli and New Kids on the Block.

    Theme writes itself.

    #224 3 years ago

    #225 3 years ago

    Of everything that comes to mind I keep thinking gnr again. I see the first one around a lot still.

    #226 3 years ago

    UFO

    #227 3 years ago
    Quoted from HighProtein:

    Also,
    What band would make sense to be another retheme of Whoa Nellie?

    The Nell Carter Experience.

    Quoted from Azmodeus:

    I vote lords of acid crablouse.

    that or at least one with COOP artwork

    #229 3 years ago

    And that's like.... the best UFO album.

    #230 3 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    And that's like.... the best UFO album.

    I am all over UFO Lights Out ; The best song is Electric Phase. The video even has Tesla with a cameo

    #231 3 years ago

    Lights Out is a 70s masterpiece. I like the cover they did of Alone Again Or on it.

    However my favorite UFO song is on Force It.

    #232 3 years ago

    Hands down......Jonny Quest.

    #233 3 years ago

    How well Aerosmith and Alice Cooper do to me will help determine the market of future music themes.
    Yes, so will Iron Maiden, but if Aerosmith kicks butt sales wise (sadly the LE and Premium will sell not so well just like KISS)
    and Alice Cooper sells out in a respectable amount of time then sure why not keep going after music themes?
    They really should be made until they quit being profitable.
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah, you want another original theme or this or that,
    so what. It's about pinball companies staying a live (insert bee gees music here).
    They can only sell music themes to the prime market of buyers of them for so long.
    In 10 years or so, kids growing up won't care about KISS or Aerosmith or most of the bands music themes are based on,
    so hustle selling classic rock and metal band games while it's possible!
    The other original themes can be waited on...

    #234 3 years ago

    Captain Fantastic 2...with audio.
    Since the CO Springs concert been on an Elton kick.
    Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters is just about as perfect as a song can get.

    #235 3 years ago

    Great theme music as well.... I would buy one for every room in the house!

    » YouTube video

    Too Much of Nothing is a great song. All of the albums featuring Michael Schenker are phenomenal.

    Hands down......Jonny Quest.

    ??????????

    The cartoon isn't a band!

    But the band is a band! Did you mean them?
    http://www.jonnyquestmusic.com/
    Prolly not, they mostly play covers, looks like...

    Or maybe I should say they used to... "WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING BOOKINGS FOR SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER 2015!"

    Oh, it looks like they just haven't updated their website, they have recent Facebook activity.

    Still, they can't be famous enough to have a pinball, so:

    The cartoon isn't a band!

    #238 3 years ago

    How about the premier 80's metal/rock band? Plenty of visuals in assets and Blackie has one of the best voices in rock.

    #239 3 years ago

    Every time I brought up multiple bands in one game the answer I got was too much for licensing. I've tried a few times to talk Jack into securing the "Now that's what I call music" rights... if you could secure that you would have over 65 cds to choose music from. We're talking every band and every type of music hit you could think of from every decade. How you would even be able to choose which songs to use would be the hardest lol. You would be able to make any toy or band feature you wanted in the play field from that song.. there's so many options it's crazy... best part it's only one license for all the music.. feel free to send this idea to any major pinball company

    That's smart, but I'd rather ya hit me in the face with a 3 lb hammer. Over and over. Until it stops.

    #241 3 years ago

    Zeppelin, def leopard, the Beatles, Motley Crue are some I can think of.

    Would be cool for a Kenny Loggins pinball only for Danger Zone but an Archer themed game could take care of that.

    Must have... this song.

    #243 3 years ago

    #244 3 years ago

    I'm in for a Van Halen pin

    #245 3 years ago

    Slayer. Make it really evil too.

    #246 3 years ago

    Linkin Park
    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
    Rush
    U2
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Green Day

    #248 3 years ago

    First, the answer is yes, there are quite a few.

    No question here, my first choices would be JJP making the following:

    Pink Floyd -- The signature circle of lights and lasers, hell, you could nuts on this one...

    Iron Maiden - Same here -- Big Eddie Toy that grabs ball, 666 plane, Bruce bash toy.. lol video and lighting with some lasers could be amazing as well!

    and finally... The CARS -- How about a bunch of little TV's moving around in the back box from the Heartbeat City Tour..lol

    Plenty to go around

    Elton was a major part of 70s culture. I had all the records.

    I remember playing pinball in a mall arcade and a group of hotties sitting by the jukebox kept playing Harmony over and over again.
