    Should RUSH be the next music pin?

    Sorry I meant to say... "I thought the singer was a girl" on my poll

    #2 6 years ago

    No, because then I would absolutely NEED to buy it!

    #3 6 years ago

    Only if there is a Bob and Doug Mackenzie mode....eh?

    #4 6 years ago

    I love Rush but it wouldn't make sense commercially. They have a dedicated fan base, but they're a very polarizing band overall.

    Plus their current steampunk aesthetic would look terrible on a pin. In fact, most of their design over the years has been pretty terrible, 2112 being the exception.

    #5 6 years ago

    I voted no, but would like to say that they definitely don't suck. I just don't want that to be the next music pin. I'm on board with many who want to see Iron Maiden.

    you also needed the, "damn, no way geddy looks THAT old..." option...

    if it happens, "young rush" for artwork please... seeing them like in this pic would just make me feel old every time i looked at it...

    as long as we are getting greedy... how about a series of rush pins? given the way their career discography has played out, you could easily have 4 or 5 "unique" themes...

    I agree with you it would be very hard to put all the years of Rush into one pin!

    #8 6 years ago

    Coming from a huge Rush fan, I would even say "No". Rush seems to lack a common theme that you could easily latch onto. They are all over the place. The music would have to come from the peak popularity in the 80-90's. Anything else from their music timeline would be either to complicated or too long, and would screw up your rythm while playing. Modern Rush loves complex passages frequently jumping time signatures.

    Enough with the music pins. Someone make a haunted house remake! A modern version would be awesome.

    #9 6 years ago


    I wonder where that 3rd option came from???

    #10 6 years ago

    If it's moving pictures only yes.

    #11 6 years ago

    How about ZZ TOP

    As long as the Rush backglass is not Hemispheres.

    #13 6 years ago

    YES YES YES

    #14 6 years ago

    Should it? Yes
    Will it? Doubtful.

    #15 6 years ago

    I would be all-in! here is some Rush artwork:

    They could just do a "worst band in the entire world ever" machine and save money on licensing...

    Err...I mean...their music is a bit polarizing?

    Luke

    #17 6 years ago

    I would buy it but no it should not be one. There following is not that huge in the US obviously they have devoted fans. There songs are too long to be used for modes, they would have to be chopped up. Great idea but I bet we see Van Halen, Ozzy, Motley Crue and a few others first.

    Just think about bands that were huge successes in metal and rock and there income lets say is not what it used to be. Those are the bands that will be next.

    Pink Floyd and Led Zepellin and Hendrix would be amazing but I doubt anyone can secure these license because of cost and friction between family who owns the rights or between living bad members.

    Iron Maiden is there next music pin and I will have my Trooper LE DAMNIT! Oh the cabinet of the translite, and Eddie being eddie all over the playfield. "done deal"

    #18 6 years ago

    people in europe don't want a rush pin, they want an iron maiden pin 8-)

    #19 6 years ago

    As long as the Rush backglass is not Hemispheres.

    (I'm sure that the band members would agree since to this day, they still don't openly talk about the travesty that is the hemispheres cover

    hemispheres-cover.jpg

    can I add to this request, the exclusion of the track "roll the bones" (or at the very least, put in the radioedit version so that we wouldn't have to suffer through the rap portion of the song

    #20 6 years ago
    Quoted from j_m_:

    Uggg, I forgot about how awful that was!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What a great album though!

    The cover blows, but the hemispheres tour was the bomb! Saw it in a small dive somewhere around San Bernardino. Pat Travers opened.

    #23 6 years ago

    Sure I'm good with Rush, gives me time to save for the next pin.

    #24 6 years ago

    Minimum 17-minute ball times?

    Sweet! I'd love to see a Nickelback pin!

    #29 6 years ago

    No offense to Rush -- I like some of their music -- but I think bands like Pink Floyd would do better commercially. I suppose you have to look at what would be popular in bars?

    I'm actually a bit surprised by the success of the Metallica pin. I listened to them in the 80s and 90s (And Justice for All, Ride the Lightning, Puppets and perhaps the Black Album) but haven't really kept up with them.

    I think the superhero stuff is big from Stern for the movie theater market. I suppose Metallica is for bars and home use?

    #30 6 years ago

    If they made a Yes pin I would go crazy! Not sure many others could handle it though. So in light of no Yes pin, give me a Rush pin!

    #31 6 years ago

    Iron Maiden. Nuff said. This should be the backglass by the way.

    #32 6 years ago

    No thanks. I'll take a Dream Theater pin instead...

    #33 6 years ago

    Saw Yes live a year and a half ago, and they put on a great show.

    #34 6 years ago

    Like I mentioned in another thread, if you want your pinball machines to be even more avoided by your wife/girlfriend than they already are, a Rush pinball would do it. Of course, so would Pink Floyd and Iron Maiden. The main question you have to ask yourself when asking "would this be good for a pinball machine" is whether or not you can imagine a woman liking even one of their songs. AC/DC good. Metallica is borderline with most of their woman friendly music coming later. Van Halen would be good. KISS would be good.

    Saw them at an outdoor venue in San Diego, but that venue looks better with all the TV's there.

    Wait which tour did you go?

    They sure are the hip band to pick on pinside, and no doubt their artwork is top tier . . . they are just really far off of mainstream, further than bands like Tool and NIN anyway . . . who also have great artwork but have more recognizable songs.

    #39 6 years ago
    Quoted from kidpinballwizard:

    Rite of Spring/Fly from Here

    The tours before a lot of you were born.

    Oh I thought you were talking about rush, never mind

    #42 6 years ago

    Rush would make a good pinball theme ("polarization" and all).

    lol

    I would use the artwork from their 1st (and best) album somewhere in the theme.

    They haven't been the same since the switched drummers.

    #44 6 years ago

    owned all their albums
    saw them in lakeland, fl in the late 70's
    geddy lee's voice is irritating stoned

    Floyd! think of the plastic crap stern could build with Floyd....the Wall, the teacher, the pig, the plane, the prism, clocks, the beds, the hammers, the Battersea Power Station.

    i'd rather see a Hangover pin than Rush.

    #45 6 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    They haven't been the same since the switched drummers.

    That is true. While I don't dislike Neil Peart, Rush never was the same again after he joined the band.

    Their 1st album has always been my favorite and I still listen to it occasionally.

    A lot more than I do any of their others anymore.

    Why does Rush have this reputation of being woman repellant? They don't sing about beating up bitches 'n hoes or whatever.

    That's why.

    Quoted from Gatecrasher:

    Their first album really is their best.

    Geddy Lee channels Robbert Plant excellently in "Finding My Way".

    Rush actually sings a song that has some heterosexual swagger in "In the Mood".

    And of course, "Working Man" has some great Sabbath drenched guitar work.

    Had Rush continued down this rocking path to hell, they'd have slutload of female fans.

    =

    All you guys that hate Rush, grab this album from iTunes or Amazon and give it a listen.

    #49 6 years ago

    But he can't sing for shit anymore. Old age is not doing well for him.

    #50 6 years ago

    Sure they can make a Rush pin......it allows me to spend my pin money on another B/W title that doesn't suck like Rush.
