    Beatles
    Rolling Stones
    Queen
    Kiss
    Rush
    Elton John
    Guns-n-Roses
    Dolly Parton

    I know this has been discussed before and I don't think Rush came up at all.

    There is no Jaws, yet.

    What else is out that that would make you open up your wallet?

    I'll start with.

    Jethro Tull. A little bit of Aqualung, anyone?

    Van Halen! I did say Van Halen not Van Hagar

    #3 8 months ago

    There's more than plenty 80s-90s bands that haven't even been touched yet.

    It seems like 70s bands are still being sifted through.

    I’d still love to see sabbath, priest, or floyd, but I think the 60s/70s well is dry.

    Zep came about 10 years late. Elton sure looks to be DOA.

    Acdc destroyed in 2012 but I bet it would stiff now.

    The members of these bands are in their fuckin 80s now. So are many of their fans. The rest are youngsters in their 60s and 70s.

    Doesn’t seem like smart money licensing these absolutely ancient bands any more. Time to give more of the 50-60 year old spring chickens from 80s and 90s bands a chance.

    I really can’t understand why Billy Joel doesn’t have his own game yet. The guy sells out MSG every month.

    I’ve been to one of those shows. The crowds are positively geriatric.

    Elton is meeting to a chorus of yawns and you want to sign up the piano man?!

    Come on.

    Hendrix is still relevant today, would make a great game.

    Quoted from Hayfarmer:

    He is no longer relevant anywhere besides a vintage guitar shop or a retirement community. Eddie Van Halen is no longer relevant. No 60s or 70s guitar hero is relevant in any meaningful sense of the word.

    Nobody under the age of 45 plays guitar.

    #11 8 months ago

    it's not a rock band but a Snoop pin would sell lol

    Def Leppard

    I’d take a rap pin all day. Death row vs a single artist though.

    Though beastie boys would be a great pin.

    #15 8 months ago

    Knowing stern, we will probably get Nickleback before anything else.

    #16 8 months ago

    Green Day
    Judas Priest
    Wu Tang Clan
    Motley Crue

    Poll needed. Slayer pinball

    #21 8 months ago

    We need a fast paced current band.

    #22 8 months ago

    Def Leppard would be amazing. Such great art on their albums, would translate well.

    #23 8 months ago

    it will never happen but Slayer is my dream theme

    it should be noted I said the same thing about Iron Maiden a decade ago
    so will see.....

    Need adrenaline-inducing tunes….Judas Priest, Motley Crüe and Sabbath would work.

    #26 8 months ago

    Viagra boys
    Amyl and the sniffers
    Sleaford Mods

    Rage Against the Pinball Machine

    Ozzy! Get it done Stern before he dies.

    #30 8 months ago

    Radiohead

    A Ronnie James Dio pin with Rainbow Sabbath and Solo Dio songs would be an instant buy.
    But the licensing would probably be impossible.
    Van Halen, Judas Priest and Motörhead are the other that I could not pass up.

    Quoted from fuzz:

    Green Day
    Judas Priest
    Wu Tang Clan
    Motley Crue

    If I walked into a room and heard a Green Day pin, I would turn around and leave.

    #33 8 months ago

    Honestly, I don't think my era of music would make a good pin except maybe one. No to, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Green Day, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Cold Play, Dave Mathews Band, Tool, Rage Against the Machine, System of the Down, Korn, White Stripes, or the hundreds of one or two hit wonders. Music is great, but I don't see it for a pin theme.

    The one I believe would work is Beastie Boys. Lots of energy to the music and the art is so open for theming. You get your first hip hop pin too.

    #34 8 months ago

    There will always be more dead rock stars to come. And plenty of not dead yet fans who will pay for it.

    I figure the way things are going you will soon be able to buy that Styx or REO Speedwagon pinball machine you have always dreamed of. Heck, Stevie Wonder was bigger than Elton, so perhaps that's in the que as well.

    #35 8 months ago

    Alice in Chains

    #36 8 months ago

    Question is are there more or less Stevie Wonder fans than Elton fans? I don't know.

    #37 8 months ago

    I could see Spooky doing this game since they did Cooper and Rob Zombie.

    Maybe Prince or maroon 5

    #39 8 months ago

    I’d stab a bitch for Oasis!

    #40 8 months ago

    I veto all three of those last three suggestions.

    #41 8 months ago

    Everybody has their own preferences.

    I don’t think there are any rock bands left that would sell enough games at these prices now.

    Maybe a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame pin. It would be great if you could license a song or two from multiple artists.

    Boston, Foreigner, Journey, The Cars, Benatar, Ozzy, Motley Crue, Stones, Pink Floyd etc etc

    And have The Righteous Brothers sing "Rock and Roll Heaven" ?

    #43 8 months ago

    Def Lep
    Motley crue
    Van halen
    Scorpions
    Ozzy
    Fucking Pantera!

    #44 8 months ago

    Forgot about Ozzy, seams like a lot of people are interested in that. Would work.

    #45 8 months ago

    The people that make the Marvel movies wonder about a very similar thing...

    #46 8 months ago

    Pantera! "3!!!" Multiball! And Black Tooth Grin Wizard mode.

    I'd be down for a NIN table as well, though. Probably more than any other band I think this would translate to a killer pin. Even mixing in some overplayed radio tunes, this would absolutely F***. "Head like a hole", "Closer", "With Teeth", then some "March of the Pigs", "Wish", "Sin", "Dead Souls", "Happiness in Slavery", and you drain hearing "This isn't meant to last!..." from "Last" I mean, there's an endless playlist of songs that would translate outstanding to pinball. Must buy. Even if I achieved a full lineup of "5" in my home, I'd kick something out for a NIN PIN. Kick in some killer TNA (but darker like their live performance) lighting with an upgraded sound system...and wow. This pin is going places.

    #47 8 months ago

    Def Leppard! Still relevant.

    I've been to a lot of concerts last few years and somehow Def Leppard still manages to attract a younger crowd. I was amazed at how many 20somethings were in the crowd anxious to have some sugar poured on them.

    #48 8 months ago

    Definitely Slayer. After that maybe a Black Sabbath with Ozzy.

    I'm still holding out for a Glen Campbell pin...

    #49 8 months ago

    Maybe a new Led Zep pin with Stairway to Heaven in it?

    #50 8 months ago

    Ramones
