Fisherdaman, Pezpunk...you make very good arguments on the above posts.
Last thing I wish to do is high-jack the thread with a "you kids get off my lawn" routine. I was trying to be humorous in my reply above as I get very annoyed by the "you're old" bit.
The topic of debate is "Do you think there should be more rock themed pins". Simple answer is, why not? No one is forced to buy these things Make as many titles of whatever you feel will generate revenue for your company. I hope every manufacturer is successful! Not only is it good for our hobby, but for the barcades and route players.
I am a total music snob. I am a pilot by trade, but should have been a musician. I collect guitars, keyboards, amps (see other threads) as well as pins. I studied music on the side in high school and college. I have written, recorded and participated in a great deal musically over my years on this planet.
While I do not like all genres of music, I offer them respect where and when I can. Taste is subjective.
Anything new musically is very welcome. I agree it is difficult to find it. Corporate radio with their drive to push the artists they want, and the over use of advertising make this a difficult task.
Not a huge fan of Alice Cooper, but he puts on a great show. Will I buy that pin? No, I will not.
Will I buy AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, or Aerosmith pins? No, but I do enjoy their music.
Pinball machines are not for everyone. I host big parties. I am fortunate to own several games.
Anyone under the age of 20 just glances at the pins and goes to the skeeball table or arcade units. Under the age of 14? They sit there staring at their smart phone.
I realize the good ol' days weren't always that good.
If an Imagine Dragons or Justin Bieber pin is the catalyst to get new folks interested in pinball, God bless and God speed.
