    I don't see why not.

    #2 2 years ago

    yes of course!

    #3 2 years ago

    Just use pinball browser and swap your songs into Metallica...add a custom translite and there is your Budgie pin. Or put the Metallica covers in there as well.

    #4 2 years ago

    Here is a reason why not...no one has heard of them...

    #5 2 years ago

    RUSH, we need a RUSH pin. The only thing that will make me lay out 8K for a NIB pin. Dammit, Someone do a RUSH pinball.

    #6 2 years ago

    Depends. Will there be an actual budgie bash toy?

    Rush, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and Zeppelin would all kill it. I know there's a drop in kit (Hammer of the Gods) for Zeppelin by CPR. Maybe something with a little less man nipple though

    Quoted from Jesterfunhouse:

    Ever heard of Metallica? Well they must have heard of them to cover not one, but two of Budgie's songs. What rock have you been living under?

    O-Din Yes actually I saw Metallica three times in the '80's in there prime and just about every other band from Pink Floyd to Soundgarden... Hendrix covered Bob Dylan that does not mean I want a Bob Dylan Pinball machine. If a Music Themed Machine is going to be successful it has to have a certain commercial following. We all would like a pinball machine after bands we like that are less played on the airwaves but to be something that sells you have to have songs that a certain part of the general public know. Sorry but BUDGIE is not a household name even for this old metal head.

    Maybe not in West Virginia or other rural areas.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Nice...but I did not grow up in WV or Rural more like a subway metro ride to RFK Stadium to see Monsters of Rock in 1987. Not trying to knock your band or even take cheap shots at where you live; but an influential band is a lot different from a popular band with a large catalogue of know songs. There have been lots of bands that have influenced Rock but don't get the credit they deserve.

    You asked orginally asked "Why not Budgie" I am just sharing the hard reality that there are MANY MANY great bands that deserve pins that have a wide range of recognition before a more obscure influential band. They just don't have the fan base that Hendrix, U2, Zeppelin , Floyd and many other bands that would make a pin sell.

    Everyone in this thread does realize this is just another o-din troll thread right? Not sure why people are taking it seriously.

    #16 2 years ago

    Weird. I hadn't heard of Budgie until a week ago then I listened to a bunch of their catalog. The do kick major ass.

    #17 2 years ago

    It would be awesome to see a Grateful Dead game, the playfield would look awesome. Someone could do some killer art for it.

    #18 2 years ago

    He was one hell of a drummer

    I've never heard of Budgie, but it's got to be better than Rush.

    #20 2 years ago
    Quoted from drsfmd:

    I've never heard of Budgie, but it's got to be better than Rush.

    Think of Budgie as the Welsh version of Rush - Burke Shelley's singing has been compared to Geddy Lee. Budgie is a three piece band too.

    Would be perfect the band for Heighway to do next (TBH I can't think of any other Welsh bands off hand)

    One of favorite songs when I was younger "I Turned to Stone":

    I'd still rather have Tesla pinball (band/inventor mix).

    #21 2 years ago
    Quoted from woz:

    Think of Budgie as the Welsh version of Rush

    Eh, then I'd probably pass. Hated prog rock when it was new, and I've never warmed up to it.

    Quoted from woz:

    Inventor minus that awful hair band, and I'd probably buy it-- it would make a great theme.

    #22 2 years ago

    I think they have already had at least three.

    #23 2 years ago

    In For the Kill multiball anyone?

    #24 2 years ago
    Quoted from Mitch:

    Everyone in this thread does realize this is just another o-din troll thread right? Not sure why people are taking it seriously.

    If that is your opinion which obviously is not everybody's, instead of coming here and shitting on me, this thread, and most of all Budgie, why not just drain it and find a thread with subject matter you can better understand or relate too?

    Perhaps this one?

    It would be awesome to see a Grateful Dead game, the playfield would look awesome. Someone could do some killer art for it.

    The ONLY choice for art would be Stanley Mouse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Mouse

    That would be amazing.

    People can bitch about how much Metallica sucks now blah blah blah but they put A LOT of dollars into the pockets of Budgie and Diamond Head for royalties off of Garage Days. Those guys are forever grateful, and so am I. Always loved that EP.

    #27 2 years ago

    I was listening to this long before Metallica even existed. The original....

    #28 2 years ago
    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Metallica does suck now but I had Garage days on printed vinyl, I was a huge fan of that band then the Black album

    The $5.98 EP.

    #30 2 years ago

    Original sticker on it said "If this is marked higher than $5.98, STEAL IT!"

    #31 2 years ago

    Seems I bought that EP about the same time I bought this.

    I just remembered I had it on cassette too.

    Both worth a nice dime. Who doesn't unwrap an album like those though?
    No survivors.

    #34 2 years ago

    What's a budgie? Is that what you get when you get your underwear jammed in your crack?

    #35 2 years ago

    My GnR still has the plastic on it although played to death in 1987.

    #36 2 years ago

    Man I had one of those like, suitcases for tapes, and someone busted out my window and stole em cause like a dumb ass kid...I left it in plain sight. That was a 1990 lesson.

    My parents always said, 'Learn something new everyday'. Thanks O-din. Never heard of them and that they were from Wales.

    Hey brother you want yer thumbs down now or later? Too late.

    I may not have heard of them either if I hadn't been hanging out in the Musixbox record store when I was young. That place was a great way to take in all different kinds of music as each guy that worked there was into something different.

    It was a Scottish guy named Doug with a heavy accent that told me "I know what kind of music you like and you should definitely check out Budgie" I said which one, and he sent me home with this one. I ended up with all their albums up to Impeckable when my musical interests started to change.

    That's ok, I take pride in every thumbs down I get. Sorry Gryszzz but Metallica did it to themselves, "Whiskey in the jar" my friend that's all I have to say about that.

    It was just a year or two ago that I finally thru my suitcase of cassettes in the shit can. They had already all seen better days 30 years ago.

    If you can nominate Budgie, can I request, XTC?

    #44 2 years ago

    Lol...

    There's another song that was way better when Thin Lizzy did it originally. I give Met props for breaking out Anti Nowhere League's- So What. A real blast from the past.

    Death Magnetic is fucking awesome. I don't care who disagrees.

    As long as we don't have to live thru another Cuba.

    #48 2 years ago

    When Budgies on I'm kickin chairs in the yard Art.

    #49 2 years ago

    I was tripping over chairs in the backyard late last night when I got the genius idea to start this thread.

    #50 2 years ago

    I just peeked, and my brother posted this photo of me in 81 after an XTC Concert, sans the T-shirt....
    Saw the pic, after I posted....no where else to share...Now I feel like Ted!

    Sorry to Hijack...back to Gryzzz and Odin...

    (Glad you know the band, Odin!)
