“Juke Box Hero” was co-written by Mick Jones (guitar) and lead singer Lou Gramm.

Mick Jones stated in an interview about the song: “That stemmed from an experience that we had, I think it was in Cincinnati. We’d gone to the arena for a sound check, and it was pouring down rain, and there were a bunch of fans waiting at the door when we went in. When we came back for the show later on, all that was left was one lonely fan, a young guy waiting out there in the rain, soaked to the skin. I thought, well, he’s waiting like five hours here, maybe we’ll take him in and give him a glimpse of what happens backstage at a show. And this kid was just mesmerized with everything. I saw this look in his eyes, and I thought, he’s seeing this for the first time, he’s having this experience. And I just imagined what was going through his mind. ”

Mick Jones: “I’d been toying with this title, “Juke Box Hero,” I thought it was almost a satire on what we did and how it was perceived from an audience level, and public. That’s how it originated.”

From their album ’4′, Lou Gramm had one one of the best voices in the business.
