"What is Love" is a song by Trinidadian-German Eurodance artist Haddaway that was popular in the 1990s. The song is recognizable by its refrain as quoted above. It popularly known for its use in "The Roxbury Guys" sketches of the American variety show Saturday Night Live (which was later expanded into the 1998 film A Night at the Roxbury) where two clubber brothers (played by Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell) joined by a rotating third person credited as "Barhop" (which included actors such as Sylvester Stallone and Jim Carrey) bob their heads in unison to the song, which plays throughout the sketches. The part where they do so in the car (taken from the May 18, 1996 playing sketch that featured Carrey) while driving to a club became a popular Internet meme.
