Crüe Ball is a 1992 pinball video game developed by Electronic Arts for the Mega Drive/Genesis. It was inspired by the glam metal band Mötley Crüe and featured three Crüe songs: "Dr. Feelgood", "Live Wire" and "Home Sweet Home". The game's soundtrack by Brian L. Schmidt features heavy metal-style music. The game's prototype name was Twisted Flipper. The producer of the game, Richard Robbins, initially pursued the name "Headbanger Ball", but MTV balked at a license and Mötley Crüe was added relatively late in development. This game was designed by two people who actually worked on pinball games: Mark Sprenger (artist for such games as 1984's Space Shuttle, 1986's High Speed and 1990's Diner) and Brian L. Schmidt (composer for Space Station, Black Knight 2000 and various pinball games by Data East Pinball/Sega Pinball (now Stern Pinball, Inc.).
