Plan B is the eighth album by American rock band Huey Lewis and the News, released in 2001 (see 2001 in music).

This was the last album to feature founding member/guitarist Chris Hayes, who performed on the album but then left after work was completed. Hayes was replaced by Oakland-born guitarist Stef Burns (Alice Cooper, Vasco Rossi, Pablo Cruise, Y&T). It was also the last News album for Ron Stallings, who died in 2009.
