    Think we have enough music pins... lets get some fresh themes please

    #52 2 years ago

    An Oingo Boingo Forbidden Zone pin seems necessary.

    #53 2 years ago

    The real question is what band does pinball deserve.....

    #54 2 years ago

    Van Halen or Foo Fighters would be my choices for purchasing another band theme pin.

    #55 2 years ago

    I'm going with Lloyd on this one.

    Vampire Weekend or perhaps an indy rock compilation. Several newer bands and maybe a classic or two likes Janes Addiction and Smashing Pumpkins in a rock festival atmosphere like Coachella or Lolapalooza. The game takes place at the festival. Guaranteed money maker on location.

    #56 2 years ago

    Megadeth or Slayer

    Quoted from trunchbull:

    Odd that you mention it, because John Trudeau's final project at Stern was indeed Oingo Boingo

    Oingo Boingo - Little Girls

    Wow, that video really takes you a back.....

    #58 2 years ago

    Motorhead

    #59 2 years ago

    Devo would fit a retheme layout.

    Pinbot already has the hat.

    Looks like Led Zeppelin is winning in the poll.

    Perhaps they will retheme LOTR?

    #63 2 years ago

    I voted for Queen!
    So much possibilities with so many songs.
    From Bicycle Race to We Will Roch You and We are the Champions.
    Even One Vision and It's a Kind of Magic.

    At the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown this month in Denver, somebody brought in a custom Led Zeppelin machine re-themed from a Bally 1977 Evel Knievel. Very nicely done and still a work in progress - graphically and functionally complete, he was still working on replacing the sound/chimes with snippits of Zep tunes.

    The "Ramble On" light is a nice touch replacing "Same Player Shoots Again" as are the nods to Plant painted drop targets, JPJ targets, Jimmy lights, and Bonzo lights at the top of the playfield.

    Lots of great choices on list, I believe some will be made somewhere down the road before we are all dead and gone. Some are bigger than others. I wish for a Monsters of Rock pin kind of like the game Brutal Legend I think would work. I want a Motörhead pin as did Lemmy. Might not be the most popular but one day at least one will be made. Still think Castlevania would work best with artwork and its music.

    Wow very cool looking.

    I actually wish they would do a Micheal Jackson pin. The dude had incredible talent. Its a damn shame he died so young.

    #69 1 year ago

    A Weird Al Yankovic pin has sooooooooooooooooooo much potential.

    Quoted from zr11990:

    Well he liked to do everything young.

    #71 1 year ago

    TOOL

    Should be a no brainer. Kick ass pinball playing music, superb following, and sweet art packages to choose from.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I have zero tolerance for pedos and if he truly was diddling those kids he deserved to go to jail or worse but I kind of think that MJ was just someone that loved kids. He never had a childhood and he wanted to have one and have fun with children. Weird yes, criminal no. Surely someone besides the one child whose parents filed suit against him would have said something. Could I be wrong? Yep I could. We all know what freaks the Hollywierd types can be and how well they can hide it. He was still a very talented little nutjob and put on one hell of a show.

    VAN HALEN - cant believe it has yet to be made - second would be RUSH

    Either order is ok with me. Come on Stern, build these before I die.

    Dave Mathews band could be cool.

    #78 1 year ago

    I can picture a Rush machine with 3 washing machine things like they did in concerts that are some sort of ball lock that rotates around- then spits them all out for a multiball - so many options

    #79 1 year ago
    Quoted from sataneatscheese:

    Agreed. I bet he would do callouts and get into it. That would be a really fun pin. Spinal Tap would also be great since you have music and movie clips.

    #80 1 year ago
    Quoted from usandthem:

    Good music, but not exciting pinball music. And if you don't have exciting pinball music, you better have some amazing imagery. U2 doesn't have that.
    I like U2 modestly, but I certainly recognize their place among the greats. Name another band that's been around for 40 years still gets mainstream attention when they put out a new record? Hell, no one cared about the Stones after Tattoo You in 1981 and that was only 17 years after their first record.

    U2 has many songs that could be integrated into a pinball theme (Vertigo, Elevation, Streets, etc). The problem is 1) U2 would never agree to license their music for pinball (never did for Rockband either) and, 2) the pinball community seems to favor heavy metal and hairbands.

    Case in point: look at the bands listed in this poll. I wouldn't consider buying a pin of any of the bands listed but would for U2, Journey, or even Billy Idol. I like pinball but my music tastes apparently differ from a significant number of those in the pinball community.

    Ummm... I think Jacko liked being around kids for more reasons then you'd like to believe. No proof but the dude (I use that term loosely)
    clearly had major issues and I think you may be a bit naive here.

    #82 1 year ago

    Coheed & Cambria would be perfect

    #83 1 year ago

    It seems as if they all have one already....Maybe now they will start producing pins for the Cover Shams, I mean bands that are running around.

    #84 1 year ago

    I a creepy as hell TOOL inspired pin. Lots of weird Adam Jones and Alex Grey inspired art.

    #85 1 year ago

    I think people are voting for the best band. That is not really the question. All of these bands are great but which one would translate to pinball. I'm a huge Rush fan but Def Leppard would translate better to pinball.

    #86 1 year ago

    What about the Grateful Dead?

    #87 1 year ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    FLOYD!!! With a flying pig.

    And dogs of war!

    Modes:
    Welcome to the Machine
    One of These Days
    Brain Damage
    Comfortably Numb
    Young Lust
    Sheep
    Run Like Hell

    Pretty sure its the other way around.

    None, tired of them

    That list is off for best rock not roll bands, the great full waste of time dead no way and a few others

    #96 1 year ago

    Music and pinball are perfect for each other....the obvious ones to me are Def Leppard and Journey

    #97 1 year ago

    Pink Floyd! Just think about, You hit that start button and that base riff begins from “One of these days”.

    #98 1 year ago

    Zepplin would work well also and while a fan of Floyd and some of the other bands listed its not pinball music.

    Rammstein destroyed Tool when they played at the same gig in Australia GC 2011 was a true gem.

    Rammstein was up first, Tool didn't know what hit em' they were humbled and the show finished early.

    I still dig some Tool but Rammstein even as fucked up as they are can really punch an epic show !

    Unforgettable even in my party savor flavor ! another average recording from my old phone at the time, I think Nokia, lol

    Rammstein Pinball could have many cool modes and a heart pumping soundtrack.

    Hell yeah !
