If you had access to the DeLorean from Back to the Future (a movie that earned Huey Lewis and the News an Oscar nomination for the monster hit “The Power of Love”) and went back to the ’80s, you’d have a hard time finding anyone who would admit to thinking the band was cool. But they were huge, thanks to a combination of video-ready good looks, the rise of MTV and the band’s ability to write solid pop-rock tunes that sounded as good on radio and in arenas as in the San Francisco bars where they learned their chops. They had 19 Top 10 hits, and their 1983 album Sports sold more than 10 million copies in America. Bet Huey still thinks that’s pretty cool.
