So nobody here remembers 3 years ago when the same things were being said about Metallica right up until people saw the artwork?

Exactly - people are very passionate about music, so the negativity comes out pretty strong.

#103 3 years ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

I read there removing that ride for the new Star Wars ride or center

I could see that. The theme was ok, but something more broadly interesting would do much better.

Quoted from pinmister:

Walk This Way featuring RUN D.M.C.-classic

I remember watching this video over and over on MTV. That was back in the day when MTV used to play music videos.

It's funny how different people had different reactions to the same video.

Many of my black friends would play me mix tapes where black artists would rap over classic rock songs - without the permission of the original artist, of course.

I would nod that it was clever, but I did not want the rap versions poisoning my memory of the original rock song.

Then I remember watching in disbelief when I saw that Aerosmith was COMPLICIT in having their music forever tainted by RunDMC.

I hung my head, one of my favorite classic rock bands had completely sold out

AC/DC would have been much better art wise with a Bon Scott era theme. Similarly, an Aerosmith pin has to be strongly leaning towards the 70's to work. Hand drawn like the Stern Kiss would be good.

#106 3 years ago

I'm not a big Aerosmith fan but with Lyman, Borg, and Dirty Donnie rumored to be at the helm I think it could surprise a lot of people and turn out awesome! Hopefully they follow the formula with Metallica and basically create an original theme with an Aerosmith soundtrack vs. Designing the theme around the band itself. I'm imagine 70s themed classic artwork and maybe they would even throw in the Sparky character and make it a sequel of sorts.

#107 3 years ago

Yeah I'm not saying Aerosmith is the greatest band or anything, just that people should think about it in perspective.

They're actually far more mainstream than Metallica, and stayed revelant in media a lot longer as well (despite bring older!) Again, not comparing quality of bands, but BRANDS.

Yep, Aerosmith is a way longer running, much more 'middle of the road', less polarizing band.

But is it still cool to **like** Aerosmith today?

I still see strippers with Metallica tshirts on, but I have not seen a kid wear an Aerosmith tshirt since the 90s.

The music in the game still sucks though. It lacks energy and low end. The music in ACDC gets me going, MET doesn't. But, it's still a fun game to play.

Yeah, we all had to swap out the suckass songs and sappy ballads to make the game rock again:

» YouTube video

I changed the exact "suckass" songs. With our current options you can put whatever you want in a pin. Make it as lame or awesome as you want. Slapping Four Horsemen in mine was one of my best decisions.

I don't know anything aboot "low end" or any of that shit because it's a pinball machine, not a jukebox, but ACDC music doesn't really "get me going;' so to each their own.

I was thinking the same thing. But you made two points and I couldn'tcompletely agree with both.

#124 3 years ago

Songs I would like:

Mama Kin, Ain't that a Bitch, Eat the Rich, Big Ten Inch, Toys in the Attic, Dream On, Amazing, Cryin, Moving Out, Dueces are Wild

Yes, to each their own. I'm not really a fan of either ACDC or MET (the bands), but given a choice I would take ACDC music. It's a matter of preference so we can all agree to disagree if needed.

I'd want a more rocking set list with none of the sappy little girl bullshit:

Toys in the Attic
Kings and Queens
Mama Kin
Let the Music Do the Talking
Lightning Strikes
Chip Away The Stone
No More
Sick As A Dog
Adam's Apple
Train Kept a Rollin'
Uncle Salty
Rats In The Cellar

Quoted from Chrizg:

I am interested in your opinion. I know your games get a ton of plays on location. My question is as an operator why would you not want to consider an Aerosmith for location? Is it simply because you do not care for the band and have zero interest or is it because you do not think it would be a good earner. From a business perspective it would seem that Aerosmith would do well on location and attract more people that otherwise may just walk by. Aerosmith as a brand is well known and I think it would be a great game for location.

#132 3 years ago
Quoted from pinmister:

The ops I know buy almost every new game that comes out.Including "boutique" games.just to see if it earns.
Perfect example :IJ4.Most players could care less,but man that sucker earned.

#133 3 years ago

For location play, the Aerosmith game could ask you to "pick your location" just like KISS.

You could pick 1 of 2 possible cities and corresponding set lists:

BOSTON - Toys in the Attic, Kings and Queens, Mama Kin, Let the Music Do the Talking, Lightning Strikes, Chip Away The Stone, No More, Sick As A Dog, Adam's Apple, Train Kept a Rollin', Uncle Salty, Rats In The Cellar

SAN FRANCISCO - Cryin', Don't want to miss a thing, Angel, Walk this way (with RunDMC), Crazy, Livin' on the edge, Amazing, Falling in love, Hole in my soul, Pink, Angel's Eye, Love in an Elevator, Janie's Got a Gun, Jaded

The RUNDMC version is BETTER than the original. And it wasn't a sellout, at the time it was actually a daring and pioneering collaboration.

Wrong

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Star Wars land is going where the Indiana Jones Stunt Show is. Toy Story Land is going where the backlot tour once was (the Catastrophy Canyon part already got demolished and the Stunt Show is gone too)

I would not buy an Aerosmith pinball... however I am shocked no one brought up a Queen pinball machine. That would be a purchase guarantee

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

It was not some collaboration like RunDMC and Aerosmith were friends hanging out drinking and swapping licks.

Rick Rubin was in the studio producing RunDMC and wanted a crossover hit to make white kids listen to rap.

When Rubin first played the track to RunDMC, they had never even heard of the song.

At first RunDMC hated the idea, but Rubin swayed them over with visions of $$$$$ if they could crossover.

The rest is sellout history.

#138 3 years ago

I would be interested in replacing my AC/DC with one. Back in the Saddle, Dream On, Walk This Way, Eat the Rich, Sweet Emotion, Train Kept A' Rolllin', No More No More, Dude Looks Like a Lady, Mama Kin, Janie's Got a Gun.

I'd also replace my AC/DC with an Iron Maiden. I would expect IM artwork to be some of the best ever. I'm a little concerned what would be used for Aerosmith artwork.

You are completely wrong about RUNDMC. They knew about the aerosmith song as they had rapped over the breakbeat many times. DMC thought the name of the band was "Toys in the Attic." And yeah, it was Rubin's idea. A great idea, which he had a lot of back then.

I don't really know how a corporate rock juggnernaught like Aerosmith - who had already sold out with a reunion tour a couple years earlier despite the fact that they hated each other and were not yet sober - sold out with the RUNDMC thing. Aerosmith have always been sellouts and were desperate to become huge again. The RUNDMC thing helped drag them out of the gutter and make it happen.

It is pretty funny seeing the reactions on this, and that not much has really changed since it came out...it was well documented at the time that people were PISSED about the remake. Old white rock fans mostly, especially in Boston. So the radio stations all stopped playing it because their old white listeners were all pissed. Until of course everybody started begging them to play it again.

I prefer the remake as it's much more interesting and higher energy.

Man, Rubin is a sellout king isn't he?

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Rapping over a breakbeat is not actually knowing a song.

That would be like rapping to Loc's "Wild Thing" means you know "Jamie's Cryin'" by VanHalen .

Rubin has said in many interviews that the band did not know the song, did not know the lyrics, and initially did not want to do the track.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Aerosmith have always been sellouts

So it sounds like we are in agreement, lol

Rapping over a breakbeat is not actually knowing a song.
That would be like rapping to Loc's "Wild Thing" means you know "Jamie's Cryin'" by VanHalen .
Rubin has said in many interviews that the band did not know the song, did not know the lyrics, and initially did not want to do the track.

They were familiar with the song. Not sure what the difference is.

And your ton loc analogy is terrible. They "knew" (in the biblical sense) "Walk this way" before recording the cover version.

Wild Thing was recorded after Jamie's Cryin.

Not sure what the history of the song has to do with the quality of it. A lot of stuff RUNDMC did want to do, like their 1990 album Back in Hell, was absolutely terrible.

Rubin had a great idea and the execution was stellar, which is why the 1987 version of Walk This Way is now the definitive version. In fact when Aerosmith plays it today, that's the version they do.

Quoted from Hougie:

Man, Rubin is a sellout king isn't he?

Guy was a hit factory, and at one point did a lot of fantastic work. These days he sucks ass and is a terrible producer. For many acts he's barely in the room these days and his underlings do most of the "producing."

OK, you are right and Rubin is wrong.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

You are right!

Wild Thing features a sample of Jamie's Crying by Van Halen.

I think history is fascinating.

Did you know that Tom Hamilton did not play the original funk bass line in Walk This Way?

AC/DC and MET is the music I listen drivin the car, so of course it helps when a pin comes out and before even seing any art toys or layout you start with the music you love.

And yes I'm an aggressive driver lol just joking

There's very few mainstream rock bands that Stern could potentially do that haven't been done that would make for descent pinball music. In looking at this list of album sales, they are certainly up there at the top.

I can't believe Barbara Streisand has sold more albums than The Stones.

Aero who?

Gary, Aero pinball will NOT sell in Australia, New Zealand & South Africa.
A trickle will be sold in Asia.

So if you are planning to build this pinnie you must be very confident of very strong North American & Europe sales.

Gary told me he's going to re-theme Areosmith as Yahoo Serious for the Australian market.
