Peaking at #1 on the Billboard Charts, selling over 10 million copies worldwide, a Grammy Award, and a Diamond Award in Canada, "Sports" is the anthem of a generation. Over half of the album's songs ("The Heart of Rock & Roll", "Heart & Soul", "I Want a New Drug", "Walking on a Thin Line", "If This Is It") were huge hit singles.
