“What Is Love” is a 1993 dance track by the singer Haddaway, popular with club DJs. Recorded in the early 1990s, it later experienced a revival as the song from the Saturday Night Live “Roxbury Guys” sketches, which were later made into the 1998 feature film A Night at the Roxbury.

The song peaked at #2 in the United Kingdom and Germany, but it reached #1 in thirteen other countries, all of them European or Asian. In the United States the song reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #12 in Australia. The song is currently the 62nd best-selling single of all time in Germany.

The song has also been featured in various other media such as television series (Life of Brian, The Office U.S.), video games (Karaoke Revolution, Knytt Stories), commercials (Pepsi) and others.
