Fact Check: Foo Fighters Album Includes Photocards

Would you buy it?

K-Pop is known for its unique inclusions with its albums, while Western artists typically only include a CD and a small booklet, including discography and credits.

So, K-Pop fans were shocked to see that the American rock band Foo Fighters album included photocards… Or did it?

K-Pop shop owner Chesca (@chescahaeyo on TikTok) shared a video of shopping in Target. They showed the few K-Pop albums Target had in stock only to reveal that a Foo Fighters album unexpectedly had an exclusive sticker, claiming that it was one of several versions and included a photocard.

What? Foo Fighters have photocards now?

The video went viral on TikTok with 138.5K views and 30.5K likes at the time of writing. Netizens were shocked but low-key excited about the possibility of a Foo Fighters photocard. Some wished their other favorite bands would take note. And we were all waiting for a photocard reveal…

…that we never got. The reason the OP (Original Poster) never probably gave us an unboxing or photocard reveal is that it wasn’t legit. Other K-Pop fans pointed out the similarity of the sticker on the Foo Fighters album to that of ATEEZ‘s recent album The World EP.2:Outlaw Digipak Version.


Can you spot the difference in stickers? We can’t. Besides, it appeared only one Foo Fighters album had the sticker.

If you look at the Foo Fighters album, But Here We Are, on Target’s website, no Target-exclusive version is available either.


However, Foo Fighters have had Target-exclusive albums before. Medicine At Midnight included a band photo and alternate embossed cover art when bought at Target.


So, the idea of a Foo Fighters exclusive at Target, including photocards, was not that unbelievable!
