The Foo Fighters Rick-rolled their audience at a festival in Tokyo yesterday when they jammed out “Never Gonna Give You Up” with none other than Rick Astley himself. Dave Grohl starts out the song saying they’d just met that day and they invited the 80s pop-star out for their show.
After a brief introduction and telling the crowd that they’d “just learned this song today”, Grohl and his band launch into “Never Gonna Give You Up”, but much to everyone’s delight, they played it in the style of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. It’s an amazing jam and you can watch it, in its entirety, right here.
This just goes to further my belief that, along with Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Foo Fighters are the coolest live band in the world!
