    Quoted from Honch:

    Accolades aside, his "opinion" of their music can't be wrong. Talent doesn't always translate to enjoyable music for everyone. It's obviously very subjective, but to me, Geddy Lee makes my ears bleed, and all the awards and record sales on the planet will never change my mind.
    It's kind of funny how everyone tries to convince each other of what they enjoy is the correct choice and that only someone with no ear for talent couldn't see it. I'll give you your point about Rush being talented, but don't you dare try and tell me that lima beans are delicious. I don't care how many awards they win at the farmer's markets.

    This is something a lot of people forget. Recognition of talent/achievement/ability does not necessarily equate to ENJOYMENT of the products of that talent. For example, as a die-hard Jazz fan I can appreciate and respect the achievements and enduring musical influence of Cecil Taylor and Ornette Coleman, but I find the music mostly unlistenable.

    In fact, I think the reverse is also true. For example, Motley Crue is fairly marginal in terms of musical ability (sorry, it’s true - in fact, Mick Mars used to “win” Guitar World “Worst Guitarist” polls in the 80s), but that does nothing to prevent the stupid grin I get every time I hear “Shout at the Devil”!

    (Oh, and your opinion of Rush is very common, and of course valid. In fact, a lot of us Rush fans would say that the vocals are the least favorite aspect of the music; at the same time we also see how Geddy’s distinctive approach is crucial to the overall sound - it’s a weird thing to reconcile, and I can’t think of another band that forces me to do so quite like Rush.)

    Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

    Another hot load of poo

    No, I'm pretty sure I'm not a fan of Rush's music or lima beans. I'm also sure that their awards and/or sales won't sway me. More specifically, I don't like the lead vocals, but It's ok. I understand a lot of people do love Rush and maybe they'll get their dream pin.

    What really puzzles is me no pink Floyd series pin. ..start with dark side of the moon.

    Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

    Don’t get me started…dream pin for me and if done right, would be an amazing pin. I know many think PF music doesn’t suit pinball, but I’ve been a floyd historian for over 30 years and could come up with plenty of great tunes that would work well covering all eras. They’ve definitely got the themes and the tunes, but sadly I don’t think they would ever license it out. They take their music far too seriously (Especially Roger Waters) to license it out and have a game made out of it.

    What's wrong with a playable pink Floyd speaker ?

    #256 7 days ago

    Check out the pink Floyd busker in Italy u tube.
    You never get the business unless you ask for the business. ..who know many he's a pinball fan.

    #257 7 days ago

    I’ve seen a lot of buskers doing Floyd stuff - some of them have real talent.

    I’m biased toward Rock pins and think they have great replay value. Both Rush and Motley would sell well as both have a huge fan base for their respective genres. Music is subjective and I hate all the arguments on ‘who is better’ be on here or on FB - it’s trivial and pointless. Always glad to see new rock pins coming out - regardless of which band is next.

    Totally fair comment made me laugh, and I swear I won't talk you into Lima beans!

    It's all about the hook. (great Blues Traveler song by the way, check out those lyrics). Its about hearing a song and then it constantly goes through your head for the rest of the day. Thats what makes the best music and that's what makes people coming back for more. Kurt Cobain could barely play the guitar BUT once he stole a popular lick from Boston, the rest was history.

    “I love Rush” , said no female ever.

    So not true. I counted three woman at their last concert in Toronto.
    Rush will sell. There are a lot of us - with cash.
    Got the guitar and beer. Now need the pin.
    Rush haters will be haters... get over it.

    The end.

    Your song choices for Rush pin?
    Just curious..

    List best songs for Crue and Rush pins,
    Top 5 each band?
    The developers should pay attention to this thread.

    #265 4 days ago

    Agree YYZ excellent choice for multi ball..
    FYI. .YYZ is airport code for Toronto.

    #266 4 days ago

    I'd rather have another theme with a curated soundtrack incorporated into the overall package.

    Not necessarily MY favorite Rush songs, but my list for top 5 for a Rush pin would have to be (in no particular order). I'm thinking these five would appeal most to the casual or non Rush fans who might end up purchasing one if it ends up being a banger as far as gameplay.

    1. Tom Sawyer
    2. YYZ
    3. Limelight
    4. Spirit Of Radio
    5. Working Man

    Top 5 Crue songs for a pin:

    1. Kickstart My Heart
    2. Girls, Girls, Girls
    3. Wildside
    4. Looks That Kill
    5. Shout At The Devil

    #270 3 days ago

    Crue all day but it can't be PG.

    If I'm in "Girls, Girls, Girls" multiball I better see some hotties on screen.

    Crue was the epidemy of sex, drugs, and rock n roll. If you take out the sex and drugs it's not the Crue...

    Swap looks that kill with Live Wire and we're in buisiness. I think the Rush songs are the right picks too. Perfect example of how much more facemelting action you get with Crue over boring Rush.

    Quoted from wcbrandes:

    Looks like Geddy Lee and pinball collector Ed Robertson from Baranaked Ladies are teaming up ..for something. Would have been nice to combine these two into a pin ! Maybe they have ?
    [quoted image]

    Likely a music collaboration.

    #274 3 days ago

    Either way, the art package should be them when they were young! Wasn’t crazy about the art direction they went with Metallica. They should have had the band when they were young and in their prime.

    #275 3 days ago

    A 2112 edit is a must for me. Or hell, just throw the whole side A in…it’s a masterpiece.

    For Crue, how do you not include "She goes down" when you lose the ball?

    This would always be preferred but its always going to be about the band in their current form.....unless they are no longer active.

    Both Rush and Crüe would sell out.

    #287 3 days ago

    The Trees is one of my favorite songs. I'm not sure it would translate to a good pinball song, though.

    I hope there’s a “Time Stand Still” magnet, and you just hear Aimee Mann’s vocal every time it grabs the ball haha

    This man is a true Rush fan.

    I will throw in Analog Kid, Kid Gloves, Passage to Bangkok

    If Bytor & the Snowdog makes it in I will be very happy but doubt that will happen.

    #297 2 days ago

    For all it's glorious self indulgence.....
    Natural Science - would be a great song for a RUSH pin to include IMHO

    #298 2 days ago

    I know it won't happen, but I'd be down with a Clockwork Angels theme. It's a coherent story, it's Geddy's favorite album of theirs, it has a steampunk vibe, and it is criminally underappreciated. I listen to it all the time and it never gets old.
