Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Urgent, Head Games, Say You Will, Cold as Ice, Hot Blooded, and the worldwide #1 hit, I Want To Know What Love Is, Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.

In 2012, Foreigner experienced a new surge in popularity when several of their hits were featured on the Rock Of Ages soundtrack, including I Want To Know What Love Is, Juke Box Hero and Waiting For A Girl Like You – more songs than any other one band on the soundtrack. Hollywood quickly took note, and several more tracks were featured in hit films “Magic Mike” and “Pitch Perfect”, sending Foreigner downloads up 400%, with their catalog outselling The Eagles, Def Leppard, Tom Petty and The Who that year.
In February 2013, Mick Jones was elected to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
