Foster the People was originally called "Foster and the People" after frontman Mark Foster. People consistently misheard the name as "Foster the People." The misinterpreted band name began to grow on Foster and his bandmates until they adopted it as their official name.
Part of Foster the People's rise to popularity can be credited to the extensive licensing of their music for ads and use in television shows and movies. The music of Foster the People can be heard on Payless shoes ads, Grey's Anatomy, Nissan commercials, SyFy's series Warehouse 13 and a 2010 FIFA soccer video game.
Foster the People have worked extensively with Paul Epworth, a noted producer who has also worked with the likes of Adele, Bloc Party and Cee-Lo Green.
