In a career that spans over five decades, Foreigner have patented a classic rock style that finds them as comfortable turning out stadium singalongs as it does intimate ballads. Though best remembered for their era-defining 70s and 80s hits, the best Foreigner songs can be found in some lesser-known corners of their catalogue, including overlooked 90s highlights and unsung album cuts.

20: Lowdown And Dirty (from ‘Unusual Heat’, 1991)
The absence of founding member and vocalist Lou Gramm is felt across the whole of the Unusual Heat album. Foreigner kicked off the 90s with a completely new sound – and a new frontman, Johnny Edwards. Though Unusual Heat is often overlooked in favour of the band’s earlier work, Lowdown And Dirty’s sexual swagger is undeniable, with Edwards’ vocals emulating the irresistible howls of Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant. Meanwhile, the guitars are punchy, loud and in your face – just as they should be.
