Hip to Be the Sandman

“You like Huey Lewis and the News?”

Of course you do.

As Patrick Bateman rhapsodized in American Psycho, “I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism.”

Now, even metal fans can delight to the regal rhythms of Mr. Lewis, thanks to Bill McClintock laying them down behind Metallica’s James Hetfield lettin’ loose on Enter Sandman.

The lyrics are even creepier this time around, and that sound, it does pop.

No need for the axe, Patrick. They like it, they really do.
