This faded black band t-shirt is for the 80s rock group Huey Lewis and the News and it comes from around the time the band released their fourth studio album Fore! The album was the follow up to the band's breakout album Sports which featured the songs "I Want a New Drug", "The Heart of Rock & Roll", and "Heart and Soul". The album was a huge success, rocketing to the number one spot on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart and scoring five top ten hits including "Stuck With You", "Jacob's Ladder", "I Know What I Like", "Doing it All For My Baby", and "Hip to Be Square" which was later famously used in a scene from the Christian Bale movie American Psycho. During the scene, Bale's character waxes poetic about the band and album, praising "Hip to Be Square" in particular.

The song was supposed to be included on the soundtrack to American Psycho, but because of the violent nature of the film, Lewis' management refused to give clearance for the track. As a result Koch Records, who released the soundtrack, had to recall and destroy around 100,000 copies of the album containing the song.

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There are bleach spots on the sleeve, see pics.
