- Crowning Music of Awesome: Amongst their offerings: "Urgent", "Feels Like the First Time", "Hot Blooded", "I Want to Know What Love Is", "Jukebox Hero" and "Starrider".
- Ear Worm: Read the same examples above.
- Face of the Band: Lou Gramm and Mick Jones; the former was the longest running lead singer while the latter is the only member who has been with the group since it started.
- Gateway Series: Improbably, Foreigner can be this to Progressive Rock, as the Ian McDonald connection has led a few curious listeners to give King Crimson a try.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: In spite of their British roots they were much more popular in America, although they did have a #1 single and album in Britain.
- One-Scene Wonder: Junior Walker's saxophone solo on "Urgent".
- Signature Song: "I Want to Know What Love Is", much to their chagrin.
YMMV / Foreigner
