Watch Arcade Fire cover Huey Lewis & The News’ Back To The Future theme

Arcade Fire has been covering songs of local interest on its arena tour, meaning they took on INXS in Australia and Nirvana in Seattle. But for Monday night’s show in Edmonton, Alberta, they must have hit a wall—or decided a track by native son Mac DeMarco might not go over with the audience. Instead, the band went for the timeless classic of Huey Lewis & The News’ “Back In Time,” a soundtrack song that doubles as a film synopsis of Back To The Future, which is a movie that has absolutely nothing to do with Alberta, Canada (that we know of). Whatever. It’s still pretty fun. [via Consequence Of Sound]
