--> --'''Patrick Bateman''', ''AmericanPsycho'' Huey Lewis and the News is a band from TheEighties fronted by Huey Lewis. Back in the 1980s, they had many hits and were reasonably adept with making music videos. Now, they are often forgotten even by shows waxing nostalgic over TheEighties, but remain a popular live act. Some of their work remains in the popular consciousness, though it isn't always consciously attributed to them. They recorded "Hip to Be Square," which made the soundtrack of ''AmericanPsycho'' the movie and was rather frantically analyzed by Patrick Bateman in that film. They also did "The Power of Love" and "Back in Time," both from ''Film/BackToTheFuture''.

Edited out face of the band trope. Inaccurately stated that members of the News formed the SNL band. Not one member of the News participated in the SNL line-up.
* TheBandMinusTheFace: After their popularity receded in the early 90s, Huey semi-retired and the "News" became the live band for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.

->''"Their early work was a little too New Wave for my tastes, but when '''Sports''' came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically."''

* ThePowerOfLove: Possibly the trope-namer, as the title of one of their most famous songs. Probably the trope-codifier; the 1st paragraph of the page quotes the opening lines.

* LyricalDissonance: "Hip To Be Square" is an upbeat song about giving up the rebellious attitude of youth, becoming a boring middle-aged man and liking it.
