From a first single in 1979, and by combining a rock (and sometimes, a blues rock) backing with harmony vocals and Lewis’s voice, the band had numerous hit songs during the 1980s and early 1990s, including “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” (both of which were featured in the film “Back to the Future”), “I Want a New Drug”, “Doin’ It All (For My Baby)”, “Do You Believe in Love?” “Hip to Be Square”, “Stuck With You”, and “Jacob’s Ladder”. Huey Lewis shared three Grammy awards, an American Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award along with several artists for his role singing the 1985 charity song “We Are the World”.
The track ‘Hip to Be Square” features prominently in the 2000 movie “American Psycho”, starring Christian Bale as serial killer Patrick Bateman. In both the film and the book it was based on, Bateman is a hardcore fan of the band.
