Huey Lewis controversy

Huey Lewis and the News' "Hip to Be Square" was originally on the soundtrack album, but shortly after it was released, the CD was pulled from the shelves and the song was removed before being reissued, but a small number had already been sold. Reports suggested that Huey Lewis had objected to the context in which his song was used in the film and demanded it be removed from the CD.

In reality, there was no objection over the context. Although the film's production team had paid for the rights to use the song in the film, the right to include it on the soundtrack was overlooked. When the soundtrack was released with the song on it, Huey Lewis had it withdrawn, as the rights had not been reserved. Further proving that Huey had no hard feelings, for the 30th anniversary of the album Sports he remade the very scene he was supposedly against with Weird Al in the roles of Patrick and Paul respectively, in 2013.
