The Hold Steady Cover Huey Lewis

As part of the A.V. Club’s bands-covering-songs video series “A.V. Undercover,” ecstatic rockers the Hold Steady recently stopped by the A.V. Club’s Chicago office to cover “The Power Of Love,” the cheeseball-classic Huey Lewis and the News song from the Back To The Future soundtrack. It’s a bit disappointing to learn, in the pre-song intro, that the members of the band were already too cool for this song in 1985, but they work it out anyway, and we should never, ever say no to dueling Hold Steady guitar solos.

You don’t need money or fame or a credit card to watch this video; it’s below.

I just wish Franz Nicolay was still around for this one; it could’ve used his facial expressions.
