Foreigner is consistently in the Top 20 at Classic Rock Radio. As a result of the depth of the catalogue, the band gets more airplay at this important format than Tom Petty, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Def Leppard, U2, Bruce Springsteen, and most of their peers. 

Foreigner have nine top ten hits (that's just one less than The Eagles, as many as Fleetwood Mac, and more than Crosby, Stills and Nash, ZZ Top, Bad Company, The Steve Miller Band, Alice Cooper, Genesis, Journey, Def Leppard, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, and a whole lot more)

Their hit single "Waiting For A Girl Like You" was #2 on the singles chart for a total of fourteen weeks. That is a record in the history of Billboard magazine. It helped drive Foreigner to #49 on Billboard's Hot 100 All Time Top Artists Chart. To put that in perspective, The Eagles are #54, Fleetwood Mac are #73, and Aerosmith are #90

Foreigner's leader and founder Mick Jones wrote or co-wrote every song, and produced or co-produced every album . 

Foreigner have sixteen Top Thirty hits. Some of them include: 
I Want To Know What Love Is 
Waiting For A Girl Like You 
Double Vision 
Hot Blooded 
Feels Like The First Time 
Cold As Ice 
Dirty White Boy 
Head Games 
Juke Box Hero
