    Quoted from EchoVictor:

    My brother had a cool idea.....

    Reuse a Tommy playfield but with new artwork.....

    How about reuse a Tommy playfield but actually have music and artwork from a band called The Who instead of a bunch of scabs?

    It would sell like crazy to any member of MBLA

    #54 4 years ago

    GWAR Girl could come out and jack a giant penis, covering the playfield in semen.

    Don't wear nice clothes to a GWAR show, BTW. You will get sprayed with some bodily fluid.

    can't imagine a rock flute theme would be good in any way on its own

    ......and one time, at band camp..........

    Quoted from benheck:


    Besides the iconic album covers (art does not equal theme just ask JPOP) could someone please explain to me why IRON MAIDEN is the must-have music basic pin?

    Maiden, The Dwarves and Motorhead are the only three oldies rock bands that kept their balls.

    They never did any disco, grunge, pop, synth string ballads, tours with Adam Lambert or Sammy Hagar.

    They still make GREAT albums, not crappy discs with a bunch of guest stars.


    #111 4 years ago

    Hard Rock bands (the kind of bands that old pinballers would likely like), generally don't have #1 hit albums.

    In the last 50 years, the only hard rock bands to have the #1 album of the year were:

    1968 The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Are You Experienced

    1969 Iron Butterfly, n-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

    1976 Peter Frampton, Frampton Comes Alive

    No Zep, no Ozzy, no Maiden, no Van Hagar, no Motorhead, no Nirvana.....

    The kind of artists that DO have the #1 album of the year are:

    2002 Eminem
    2003 50 Cent
    2004 Usher
    2005 Mariah Carey
    2007 Josh Groban
    2008 Lil Wayne
    2009 Taylor Swift
    2011 Adele
    2012 Adele
    2013 Justin Timberlake
    2014 Taylor Swift

    Do you want a pinball machine based on any of them?

    #191 4 years ago
    Quoted from woody24:

    How about the Foo Fighters!

    Foo Fighters are OK, but they are just another generic corporate rock band.

    They went around on their TV show to all different cities and recording studios, but instead of picking up any local flavors or influences, they seem to keep recording the same song with the same sound, again and again....

    I want to love them, but in the end they are just background music at Applebees

    #198 4 years ago
    Quoted from woody24:

    I think I'd find it frustrating if a band changed their style for every song.

    I just would have loved if they did an Orleans sound while in NO, a NYC punk sound while in NY, a fun LA Glam throwback while in LA, a soulful tune while recording in Detroit, an alt-country blast while in Austin.....I think they squandered a great opportunity.

    Take Led Zep, I enjoy when they do some Muddy Waters rip off blues, then some Middle Eastern drenched Kashmir, then some spooky No Quarter, then straight ahead Rock N' Roll.

    Take Bowie; get your fill of space rock, then some blue-eye soul from Young Americans, then some electronica with Scary Monsters, the silly fun of Pin-Ups, the new wavishness of Let's Dance.

    Or The Dwarves, choke on some some giant synth rez with FEFU, some fun pop culture with Do The Sponge, some Beach Boy harmony with One Time Only, some galloping metal on Demonica, or some under the influence Iggy growl on You Got To Burn.

    All these great bands can play lots of musical styles, but there is no mistaking what band is playing on the radio.

    20 years of Foo, let's expand the horizons a little bit!

    #204 4 years ago
    Quoted from Baiter:

    Maybe the better question is why the youngest band in the poll formed 34 years ago.

    The last iconic rock band was Nirvana, 28 years ago.

    Behind the Music killed iconic mystery of the **Rock God**, by exposing all those artists for what they were....so there will likely never be another.

    #219 4 years ago
    Quoted from Baiter:

    I can't see how BTM exposed anything that people didn't know.. rock stars are well known dysfunctional people, which becomes the source material for their music.

    You WANT rock stars to be dysfunctional madmen.

    When you see them just selling women's shoes, it kind of takes the interest out of it all.

    I like my rock stars crazy or dead.

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Well Dave grohl was the drummer for nirvana

    No way!!!

    #296 4 years ago
    Quoted from sparechange1974:

    Is it possible that Stern's next music pin will be a re-release..AC/DC, but a different version?

    AC/DC was modern Sterns best selling game ever.

    Garry said that the license has expired.

    It would have been cheaper to renew the license than to re-license it altogether, so it seems doubtful that there will be any more AC/DCs.

    #299 4 years ago
    Quoted from kst8cat:

    They could make a Great White pin. During multiball the pyrotechnics go off and catch the playfield on fire.

    Over 100 people lost their lives in that fire.

    Not funny.

    #302 4 years ago
    Quoted from kst8cat:

    Yeah I have a morbid sense of humor sometimes.

    I have a morbid sense of humor too.

    It's OK to joke about Jeffery Dahmer getting his head smashed to bits, because he was a murderous asshole.

    It's not OK to joke about 100 dead innocent people.

    #304 4 years ago

    SR said "largest selling modern Stern"

    I wish he was allowed to give sales numbers.

    We know the best selling Classic Stern was Meteor with 8,400 so it must be less than that.

    #307 4 years ago
    Quoted from Speed:

    Nirvana . . . let's get to more modern music please.

    You do know that Nirvana was 28 years ago?

    Quoted from Erik:

    I hadn't watched a music video in years, but there is a lot going on in this one! Highly amused!

    Can you imagine what the budget was for that video??

    Or can you imagine when directors Boyd and Ranasinghe , after doing all those crappy Shina Twain and Lionel Richie videos, got the call to work with Deadmau5, Gerard Way, 2500 extras and two 100 foot tall robots?

    #328 4 years ago

    Now that Kim Jong Un is having Laibach be the first rock band to tour North Korea, is it actually time for a Laibach pin?

    Should we look to the cheap labor of North Korea to supply us with an affordable music pin?

    #332 4 years ago
    Quoted from TOK:

    There is something about their music that sounds like a bunch of stuff copied from other bands all stuck together. I don't know if generic is the right word to describe it.

    In the music biz, we call that word "Corporate Album Oriented Rock".

    Think of all the interchangeable, background music bands that have hits, but no cock: Nickelback, Hootie & the Blowfish, Goo Goo Dolls, Creed, Train, Smash Mouth....Go back a generation and then you have: Phil Collins, ASIA, Winger, Warrant, Kenny G

    There is nothing inherently wrong with any of those bands (other than they suck), but they simply are the boxed wine of the music industry.

    #348 4 years ago
    Quoted from titanpenguin:

    New kids on the block....... it would bring a huge influx of women to the hobby in a heartbeat.

    Although there are a few women in pinball, it's just not a hobby that most women are interested it.

    If it were, every woman over 35 would own The Shadow just to twiddle off to Baldwin.

    1. Last Beatles album was 45 years ago.

    2. Last real Zep album was 36 years ago.

    3. Last real eagles album (although they are not a rock band) was 40 years ago.

    They sucked on tour, even when they had the original line up.

    I saw them 2 times and both times they were terrible.

    #519 4 years ago

    Stern should do a "Sad Synthesizers of Rock" pin, where they take bands that formerly rocked but then added synthesizers to try to appeal to teenage girls:

    ZZ Top

    They could add a super bonus wizard mode that has bands who re-recorded their songs with full philharmonic sludge:


    #521 4 years ago
    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Is that why bands moved to synth, not because it's awesome?

    Nothing awesome about adding a bunch of fluffy synth lines to an otherwise limp song.

    #528 4 years ago
    Quoted from kporter946286:

    BS I've seen em 3x and all three were 3+ hours of brillance.

    I wish I could have been there with you, because both times I saw GNR, any local cover band would have done better.

    #536 4 years ago
    Quoted from libtech:

    As much as these are classic bands, why not make a music pin around a contmporary band?

    Nirvana was the last iconic rock band, and that was 28 years ago.

    #539 4 years ago

    Kids don't even have a favorite band anymore.

    I ask my teen cousins what's their favorite band and they just shrug "Whatever is on the radio".

    It used to be every teen had their favorite band and they would draw their logo on their notebook, on their gym bag, explain the meaning of every lyric....rock music has faded away.

    #551 4 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    The band Cage The Elephant has stated that with their next album they are going to prove rock and roll is not dead.

    That sounds good to me.

    I'd love to be blown away by a new album like I was when I first heard Maiden's Number of the Beast, Nick Cave's Abattoir Blues, Iggy Pop's New Values, The Pixie's Doolittle, The Clash self-titled, Metric's Live it Out, or the Stones Goat's Head Soup.

    Quoted from o-din:

    But yeah, who on here has heard of those guys except me.

    If you turn on any Alternative radio station in OH, the only thing they play is Cage. Ain't No Rest for the Wicked is probably played every 1/2 hour, and Shake Me Down once a hour.

    They are a super popular band, but they are not icons like The Stones, AC/DC, Maiden....or even the aforementioned Foghat.

    #553 4 years ago
    Quoted from kporter946286:

    There is just no money in Rock anymore so not really worth doing it IMO.

    But Urban and Country music continues to sell well.

    Everyone knows who Beyonce, Drake, Jay Z and Nicki Minaj are.

    They are icons that even old white guys know.

    If I asked any black guys my age to name me a rock band after Nirvana, do you think they could think of even a single band?

    #557 4 years ago
    Quoted from TOK:

    I know the names, but couldn't name one song by any of them.

    That's EXACTLY my point.

    Even an old white guy knows all the urban recording artists.

    Could your mom name ANY rock band after Nirvana?

    Yet, I bet she knows who Nicki Minaj is.

    Not a single iconic rock band in 28 years = rock is dead.

    #561 4 years ago
    Quoted from TOK:

    I could probably name the actual music they sampled/ripped off to talk over.

    I think most of the stereo stores died out when rock died out, lol.

    It's funny that Slowride is always chosen from that album, but the title track, Save your Love, and Drive Me Home are better songs.

    Quoted from Gerrard17:

    I think it's best to avoid popular culture / music and has been for awhile, I feel sorry for my kids.

    Every generation hates the last generation's music.

    Guys in their 40's hate the Beatles, kids today hate Metallica.

    You can find a few exceptions, but no one wants to identify with their grandfather's music.

    #605 4 years ago
    Quoted from Gerrard17:

    With regards to rock being dead, I think it still exists but publicizing your music these days is so easy with the internet that those real rock bands who stick to the ethos of honing their art in a garage and touring touring touring to get their break can't get any attention with kids who grow up getting their feed of music via you tube.

    But why don't ROCK bands get any internet traction?

    Country musicians play in barns and garages, honing their skills, they get tons of publicity. They even get their own awards show (Country Music Awards)

    Rappers rap at parties and dance halls, honing their skills, they get tons of publicity. They even get their own awards show (Hip Hop Awards Show).

    There has not been a Rock Awards show since 1978.

    Quoted from ZippyThePinhead:

    I'd really like to know where's the new code for the recently released music pins! KISS in particular!

    It always takes 2 years to get the 'final' code from Stern.

    Lamb of God - Blacken The Cursed Sun

    #680 4 years ago
    Quoted from PinballManiac40:

    Lenny Kravitz opened up for Aerosmith a few years ago.

    But doesn't Lenny Kravitz just lipsync live?

    You could tell at the Superbowl that he was not playing his guitar.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Couldn't have been as obvious as the time ZZ Top did halftime.

    That was a classic, too.

    First game to come with an external sub.

    Quoted from pinnaf:

    what about PRIEST!!!

    #707 4 years ago
    Quoted from Cruster:

    So far band pins that actually sell seem to correspond with metal bands that actually get play on my jukeboxes.

    What are the top 100 bands on your jukes?

    LCD Soundsystem reunion, now that's serious news!!!!!

    #743 4 years ago
    Quoted from schwarz:

    Not that I'm not happy about the LCD reunion

    I once went to a party and they played "Daft Punk is playing at my house" the entire night.

    Quoted from jimy_speedt:

    I see that the results of the poll show Iron Maiden in first position. I presume it is linked to the art of their albums.

    The Art is good, but the fast, galloping music is what would make for a great pinball machine.

    Maiden was a strange crossover band that was part Punk, part Metal.

    Many of the bands people have proposed in this thread are WAY too slow to play pinball to.

    #754 4 years ago

    You can never have too much Dickies.

    Banana Splits

    Quoted from jimy_speedt:

    And when you lock a ball for multiball.... "this is the number, six hundred and sixty six !"

    6 ball multiball for sure.

    #763 4 years ago
    Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

    Now there is one that I didn't think of. I think ZZ Top would make for a great pin.

    Lethal Weapon III sure was great.

    #782 4 years ago
    Quoted from jints56:

    How about a music pin with no licensed music. Hand drawn art and cheap tunes. Customize tunes with play Niall browser to your liking!

    Great idea!


    #787 4 years ago
    Quoted from thedarkknight77:

    Amazing how low the votes are for Ozzy????? I would think an Ozzy pin would be huge?

    Maybe if Ozzy never did his stint as an actor, everybody would want his pin.

    But who is going to want a "Clown of Metal" pin now?

    #789 4 years ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    but I know tons of his songs from classic rock stations...far more than someone like Iron Maiden

    There was a rift between Maiden's management and Clearchannel, so Maiden has not been in rotation for many years in the USA.

    But in the rest of the world, they are the the biggest thing around.

    RIP David Bowie


    #800 4 years ago
    Quoted from ZippyThePinhead:

    though I can't believe it's still ahead of the greatest rock band of all time...

    Zep was of course, the greatest cover band of all time, but Maiden's music is faster and more suited to pinball.

    #812 4 years ago

    Devil's Angels from the new Danzig album "Skeletons".

    #817 4 years ago


    Among the items that he lost in his flooded basement were irreplaceable items such as SKID ROW master tapes, a KISS pinball machine and other band memorabilia.

    "How I wish there was a reason to do a [SKID ROW] box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit," he wrote in a Facebook post at the time. "Nobody cared. Now it's too late. Don't know what you got 'till it's gone, indeed."

    It's funny how Sebastian tries to imply that the Skid Row "master tapes" were lost in the flood.

    There is no way in hell that Atlantic Records gave the master tapes from any of the Skid Row albums to Bach, because aging rock stars might do stupid things with them - like store them in a basement.....

    #818 4 years ago
    Quoted from PinCrush:

    IMO, best throwback hard rock album from last year was Black Star Riders. The whole thing is killer. Thin Lizzy fans see below

    Their song "Soldiertown" is almost exactly Thin Lizzy's "Emerald", note for note.

    If you like Lizzy, you will like their reincarnation as BSR.

    Quoted from MMforever:

    michael jackson

    There is no way Gary Stern is going to get behind a pedophile.

    #824 4 years ago
    Quoted from ahdelarge:

    Serious question now, are allegations alone, enough to stop a company from creating a pinball machine featuring Michael Jackson?

    America's FBI says that MJ paid 24 parents a total of 35 million dollars in hush money.

    (you'd think that after paying off the first kid's parents, you would stop having sleepovers with 7 year old boys in your bed; and not reach for another 23 more....)

    Gary Stern is rather conservative; he's not going to touch a MJ pin with a pony spotted pole.

    Quoted from Erik:

    Partial to collection 1 myself!

    There used to be a female Misfits cover band named "She" that would play in Cinci .

    They would play collection 1 & 2 in order.

    I asked them why and they said "that was the order we learned them".

    Works for me.

    Quoted from Agent_Hero:

    Why not do a decades/generations of music/Billboard Hot 100 over the years kindl Hank Williams, work your way to Elvis, Beatles, 70's, 80's...just iconic songs of all genres over decades...like a quasi-jukebox pin. It would probably work best with technology to make the layout kinda fluid--like drop target X isn't marked by the face of Elvis Presley, but it's actually a target that appears differently based on the era or mode you are currently playing in. Maybe that's too high tech, too much Virtual Pin nonsense. Oh, and I demand a huge-ass WOZ style screen showing music videos as the action happens.

    Excellent idea!

    According to Billboard:

    #1 artist 1940s: Bing Crosby
    #1 artist 1950s: Elvis (who already has a pin)
    #1 artist 1960s: The Beatles
    #1 artist 1970s: Elton John (who already has a pin)
    #1 artist 1980s: Prince
    #1 artist 1990s: Mariah Carey
    #1 artist 2000s: Eminem
    #1 artist 2010s: Taylor Swift (so far)

    #855 4 years ago
    Quoted from RogerKlotz27:

    How can with the tech available today, These new music pins can't offer bands entire catalogs? Someone explain this please.

    They could offer entire catalogs, but who would want that?

    Most bands have plenty of sucky songs.

    A pin is like a greatest hits package.

    #857 4 years ago
    Quoted from RogerKlotz27:

    10 grand for 11 songs. Ludicrous

    Each song requires programming a mode around it.

    Or are you looking for a jukebox mode that would just play the songs without a specific mode?

    There are not 20 songs by Led Zepp fast enough to put in a pinball machine.

    There are not 20 songs by Aerosmith fast enough to put in a pin.

    #861 4 years ago
    Quoted from RogerKlotz27:

    These new machines don't justify their price. How are you even arguing this vid1900?

    Don't buy anything if you don't believe it's worth the price.

    I don't like the band Metallica anymore but the Pro machine is worth $5k in my world.
