1. a star whose songs grab a lotta coins in a jukebox so those specific songs are played.

2. of course, the term is also the title of a 1982 hit by the band Foreigner. It's from their epic hit album "4" (yes, that's the name of the album!).
1. whenever I was in Papa John's pizza joint with a girlfriend or solo, I'd often put in 50 cents to play "Astronomy Domine" by Pink Floyd. It sounds like some sort of "rock'n'roll Star Trek". In that respect, Syd, Roger, Richard and Nick are juke box heroes.

2. When I saw Foreigner live, the concert concluded with "Juke Box Hero" and just before the coda there would be a smoke bomb exploding with a thunderous boom on stage and emitting green smoke.

A faded rock star who doesn't have any hits in contemporary times however their tunes live on in jukeboxes worldwide and on classic rock radio. A hit making recording artist from another time who is now probably more than likely leading a cover band coming to a state fair near you.
70's hit makers, one-hit wonders, pop radio staples, commercials sample these songs. These bands are your grandpas rockers ala BTO, Blue Oyster Cult, Montrose, Pat Travers. Back in the day, grandpa would crank up the 8 track in the Trans-Am and rock out like he was a jukebox hero, imagining groupies, wild parties and endless booze parties.
