Date: 24th February, 2023 See UPDATE below for the latest news Stern Pinball today teased next week’s full announcement of their next Cornerstone title, Foo Fighters. An image from Stern Pinball’s teaser video for their upcoming Foo Fighters game Foo Fighters joins the long list of music-themed pinballs from Stern, including AC/DC, Aerosmith, Rush, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. The latest game is based on the Seattle-based band formed by Dave Grohl who was formerly the drummer for Nirvana. Established in 1994, the band has featured several members and was in the public eye last year when drummer Taylor Hawkins died unexpectedly. That could have been the end of the band, but Grohl recently announced three upcoming appearances by Foo Fighters at US festivals in 2023. Hawkins appears to be featured in the Foo Fighters van in the image above, alongside Grohl (driving). The pinball tease came in the form of a video on YouTube which you can watch below. It appears as though the pinball will feature an alien invasion theme, with the band saving the Earth, Ghostbusters-style. That theme would be fitting given the term ‘Foo Fighter’ was used by pilots to refer to an unidentified flying object (UFO) during World War Two. An alien attack begins The Ghostbusters-style extends to their HQ building There had been speculation whether it would be Foo Fighters or Venom announced as the next Stern title. Now we know.
