Dave Grohl once again used his barbecue talents to help feed homeless families.

The Foo Fighters frontman and his fellow barbecue cookers teamed up with Hope of the Valley to spend 24 hours barbecuing 70 pork butts for The Woodlands Family Shelter in Woodland Hills, California over Super Bowl weekend.

Hope of the Valley posted a video of Grohl and company in action on Instagram.

Grohl has donated his barbecue skills to feed the homeless on multiple occasions. The most recent was back in December, he spent a day off from Foo Fighters' Australian tour feeding the homeless in Melbourne, Australia.

Foos Make a Mean Pinball (Game)

Foo Fighters were the latest band to get their own pinball machine earlier this year. And now Stern Pinball has released a behind the scenes look at how the game, which features 15 of the band's songs, came together.

Stern Pinball, Inc. unleashes a new line of pinball machines celebrating and created in cooperation with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2021 inductees Foo Fighters.

Foo Fighters first stepped onto the world stage in 1995 with their classic self-titled debut album. Over the course of their career, the band has released 10 studio albums, amassed over 32 million records sold worldwide, won 15 Grammy Awards, were recipients of the first-ever MTV "Global Icon" award, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2021. One of the biggest headliners on the global stadium, arena and festival circuits, their music will soon begin filling gamerooms and entertainment locations in pinball form.

Stern's Foo Fighters machines bring the Foo Fighters concert experience home as players are immersed in an epic pinball adventure featuring 15 iconic songs spanning the band's expansive catalog, including All My Life, Best of You, Breakout, Everlong, Holding Poison, I'll Stick Around, Learn to Fly, Monkey Wrench, My Hero, Run, Something from Nothing, The Pretender, This is a Call, Times Like These, and Walk.

More than two years in the making and with creative input from the band's own Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and the late, great Taylor Hawkins, Stern's Foo Fighters is a top-shelf pinball machine—and so much more. An entire new universe has been developed with jaw-dropping hand-drawn artwork and custom animations including "Foo Fighters Saturday Morning Action Time!"—a fictional TV series chronicling the band's quest to save rock and roll… AND THE WORLD! Join Foo Fighters on this rescue mission to thwart the evil, mysterious alien Overlord and his army of bots. Search the Area 51 upper playfield (Premium and LE models) to break into and unleash pinball chaos. Jump in the van for a righteous tour of duty to save humanity from extinction and let rock rule!

Foo Fighters pinball machines include Stern's award-winning Insider Connected™ system, which enables players to interact with the game and a global network of players in a variety of ways. Through Insider Connected, players can track progress, earn new game-specific achievements, engage with the player community, and participate in promotions and Challenge Quests. Insider Connected also provides an operator-focused toolset to drive location play through Location Leaderboards, build player loyalty, analyze performance, make adjustments remotely, and maintain the machines. Registration for Insider Connected is available at insider.sternpinball.com/.

"Partnering with Foo Fighters, we created an entirely new pinball universe under the backdrop of incredible music. The energy from this unique, fast and flowing game design, choreographed with spectacular lightshows and stunning hand-drawn artwork has created the ultimate gaming experience," said Seth Davis, President & CEO. "Get connected today and become a hero."

In Case You Missed it...Foo Fighters Release “Rescued” Video & Announce New Album

Foo-Fighter_20230419-200211_1
FOO FIGHTERS - BUT HERE WE ARE - New Album Out June 2 - First Single "Rescued" Available Now

Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with 'But Here We Are', out June 2 on Roswell Records/RCA Records. 'But Here We Are' will be the first Foo Fighters album since the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins last year. 

A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year, But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family. Courageous, damaged and unflinchingly authentic, But Here We Are opens with newly released lead single "Rescued," the first of 10 songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.

Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of the band's new life. Sonically channeling the naiveté of Foo Fighters' 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.

But Here We Are is available for pre-order now, with all pre-orders including "Rescued" as an instant grat. The album's track list is as follows:

Rescued
Under You
Hearing Voices
But Here We Are
The Glass
Nothing At All
Show Me How
Beyond Me
The Teacher
Rest
