    Poll should help you decide.

    Sha-Na-Na, they did play at Woodstock.

    Tarnow, Chopin & Proctor for the win!

    I can not think of a new band that would make me spend $10k on a big ass toy. In fact, I can’t think of a new band Whose music I would even want to allow in our house. Imagine Dragons pinball? forget it!

    Just thought of one: GHOST. Cool imagery, great tunes, not whiny, lots of evil modes to think up.

    Likely to be the Beatles and I'm in for an Le!

    Zepp or Floyd. Would take Greta Van Fleet as a constellation.

    Well there’s no doubt they are gonna be big STARS but did you mean consolation?

    #8 1 year ago

    CASH. As in Johnny. Would be a good route pin.

    On some dumb poll again
    just can't wait to get on the poll again
    The life I love is playing pinball with my friends
    And I can't wait to get on that poll again!

    Ladeez and Gentelmen THE BEATLES!!!!!!!

    #11 1 year ago

    Newer for sure.
    Remember bwhen everyone would get around tomcat F-14 and listen to motley crew? We used to use mirror backglasses to put our lipstick on, shine our cod pieces, and make sure our pink tassles where all lined up?
    Neither do I, but for some reason everyone on a pinside does.

    Funny, as I can't think of an old band that would make me want to lay out that kind of bread either.

    its because "bands" don't sell anymore. Rock has been dead a while. urban music or electronicca has been top selling music for 10 plus years now. the most popular in bars, clubs as well. drive around with your windows down in any area, even white suburbia. people under age 34 the majority listen to urban related or trap, dub step, dance. the small exception is 10 and under, disney related artists, but even that is getting urban flavor these days. yes SOME younger people may appreciate rock or country, but NOT the majority. Have to face facts. make a machine based on current pop music and they will earn huge on location. theme attracts casual or non regular pinball players. those are also the people who spend the most on location for the most part.

    This is 100% not my experience at all. Younger hipster pinball enthusiasts here enjoy live music and rock n roll. We just did a “rock n’ roll revue” type set at a festival a few weeks ago of Motown, Elvis, Raconteurs, Joan Jett, Ghost, Tom Petty, couple of newer bands, some originals (we sound sort of like Muse and Queen) and it KILLED.

    I have a hard time telling Taylor swift and motley crew apart.

    He's talking aboot getting new blood in to pins, not hipster pinball people.

    aah, copy that.

    Well then, we need BIG LCD SCREENS!! And Video Game graphics!! I've gotten 2 of the guys in my band into it, so that's a start

    I must be one of those younger hipsters you are referring to.

    #23 1 year ago

    I am a Beatles fan and Maiden, Beatles has a chance at doing better or I mean selling more than Maiden as appears people want it, I am not against it but so happy Maiden is getting done especially if a hit pin. Not sure what other music pin would do well but I am all for them. Maybe Ozzy/Sabbath. Hope someone does a one off Motörhead one day as well as a NHL pin.

    Come Christmas time Perry Como is sure to be a big hit.

    I'd have to custom make a pin for any band I'd want to see have one. None of the bands I listen to make it to regular radio or will never be big enough to warrant one.

    #26 1 year ago

    It just occurred to me there has not been a Lynyrd Skynyrd pinball machine yet. And that would qualify as older.

    Sweet Home Alabama mo fos.

    #27 1 year ago

    Glenn Miller for the win

    I have the same problem here but there is always a good home brew!

    Motörhead for LEMMY!

    Do you think the "Baby I'm A Want You" LE will be a sell out?

    Would be a pre-order phenom.

    Pinball is a strange hobby to be into when you're in your 30s or younger. I'm into a niche hobby compared to my peers, and threads like this leave me feeling alone in the community when people seem to be unaware of modern pop culture.

    Like hell, I'd love a Flaming Lips table, but I don't know if there's a crossover in fans. And the Lips are pretty damn old too.

    Quoted from roffels:

    It gets even stranger when you hit your mid 50s and people are begging for themes you haven't even thought about in over 30 years.

    And even stranger yet, the pinball companies then make them.
