It took someĀ convincing. Originally, Huey Lewis turned down the cameo in Back to the Future. I know, right?! It’s one of the funniest scenes in the movie. According to ForTheWin.com, Lewis wasn’t the only ones that said Thanks, but no thanks.

Van Halen turned down the offer to be included in the movie. That’s why the cassette that Michael J. Fox‘s Marty McFly inserts into his Walkman is labeled Edward Van Halen, Eddie said okay and provided some original music just for the film!

Before he developed Parkinsons, Fox played guitar. That’s him actually playing throughout the movie.

Huey Lewis agreed to do his cameo in disguise – if you can call the way he looked a “disguise”! – he wouldn’t be used to promote the movie and he would go uncredited.

Not only was he hilarious, but the song The Power of Love shot to number one and was nominated for an Oscar! Because of Back to the Future. Unfortunately, it lost out to Lionel Richie!
