A British-American rock band originating in TheSeventies and TheEighties, Foreigner was one of several HardRock bands (along with with groups like Music/{{Journey}} and Music/{{Survivor}}) that gained fame in the [[ArenaRock AOR]] scene during the early 1980s. The group's mainstays were English guitarist Mick Jones (not [[Music/TheClash that one]]) and American lead vocalist [[FaceOfTheBand Lou Gramm]], with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a rotating cast of other musicians]]. Since Gramm's departure in 2003, Jones is the only founding member still with the group.

The group had it's greatest success with a string of seven multi-platinum albums between 1977 and 1987, and had hit singles with songs including "Cold as Ice", "Juke Box Hero" and the ballads "I Want To Know What Love Is" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You".
