As fate would have it, Foo Fighters and Rick Astley were both on the bill at this weekend’s Summer Sonic Festival in Japan. During their own headlining set, Foo Fighters invited Astley onstage to join them in performing his No. 1 single-turned-viral meme, “Never Gonna Give You Up”. Appropriately, however, the band trolled the audience by playing the song in the style of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Only after Astley began singing the lyrics to “Never Gonna Give You Up” did the onstage RickRoll become evident. Watch above.
