This is musical insanity – Rick Astley is singing ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ backed by Foo Fighters breaking into Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.
Foo Fighters’ “rick-rolled” at Tokyo’s Summer Sonic festival this past weekend. “This is fucking crazy. I just met him two minutes ago,” Dave Grohl said introducing Astley to the stage. Then on comes Rick yelling “Muthafuckers”.
