YMMV / Huey Lewis and the News

  • Awesome Music: "That's the Power of Love"
    • All their hits are just plain awesome. "The Heart of Rock & Roll", "Do You Believe in Love", "Stuck with You", "Heart and Soul", "If This is It"...
    • Their appearance at the 1985 home opener for the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick park. Six part harmony, not an auto-tuner in sight. Awesome.
  • Colbert Bump: American Psycho made them a lot more well-known among younger listeners.
  • Covered Up: How many were aware that "Do You Believe in Love" was originally recorded by a band called Supercharge?
  • Epic Riff: Oh so many; "Hip to Be Square", "Heart and Soul", "I Want a New Drug"...
  • Face of the Band: Huey Lewis, of course.
  • Memetic Mutation: Along with the use in American Psycho, an edit of "Hip to Be Square" that changes various portions of the lyrics to "Fuck bees" has also gone around (the "fuck" voice clip is from a Penn & Teller: Bullshit! clip, and "Bees" is formed from the "be square" vocals). This version gained a lot more prominence after it was featured in a particular Vinesauce stream; as one YouTube commenter on the official music video put it, the rest of the comments were "either about fucking bees or American Psycho".
  • Narm Charm: Many of the love songs and their videos. ESPECIALLY their videos.
