May 6, 2016 -  One of rock’s most legendary acts, Foreigner, continues to rock fans across the generations thanks to usage in today’s most relevant films, TV shows, video games and commercials. With more than 300 million YouTube views, recent song usage of hits like  “Hot Blooded,” “Cold as Ice” and “Juke Box Hero" have driven Foreigner’s modern-day renaissance, solidifying their status as one of the most popular acts in the world. Billboard recently released it's “Greatest of All Time” lists which featured Foreigner in all categories, and with ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, and Foreigner continues to attract fans from all generations with more than 3 million Facebook followers. 

 

 

Foreigner has also made a major splash on primetime and late night television. In November 2015, Emmy-award winning actress Allison Janney dueted with Stephen Colbert for a theatrical interpretation of iconic hit, “Hot Blooded,”  as she promoted the new season of her CBS show, “Mom." With "Juke Box Hero” recently featured on Jimmy Fallon’s "Tonight Show" as the chosen tune for a lip-synch battle against actor Paul Rudd, this is the second time Foreigner’s music has been prominently featured on network late night television in recent months. Primetime's biggest TV shows also featured some of Foreigner’s greatest hits. In an October 2015 episode of NBC’s The Voice, contestant Keith Semple performed “I Want To Know What Love Is,” and on the same night, ABC’s premiere episode of “Wicked City” included the aptly titled “Feels Like The First Time,” which was watched by more than 3 million viewers. Runaway Netflix hit “Orange Is The New Black,” even featured “I Want To Know What Love Is,” as a theme in their season finale.

On the film front, Melissa McCarthy’s recent hit comedy "The Boss" features Foreigner’s worldwide hit “I Want To Know What Love Is,” and  Dreamworks Pictures' animated film, Kung Fu Panda 3, starring Angelina Jolie, includes Jack Black's title track “Nunchuck Princess” set to the tune of “Juke Box Hero” for the the films soundtrack with millions of viewers on YouTube alone. 

These are just some of the ways Foreigner continues to rock the charts as the result of music usage in TV, digital and film. A formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million, Foreigner’s music has also been featured in films including “Rock of Ages,” “Anchorman 2,” “Magic Mike” and “Pitch Perfect,” and such video games as “Grand Theft Auto V.”
