Craziest Duo Ever! Rick Astley Joins Foo Fighters On Stage

Over the weekend legendary rock band the Foo Fighters headlined the Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo, and surprised fans when they announced a special guest would join them on stage.

Main man Dave Grohl, who famously made his name as the drummer with Nirvana, invited none other than 80's pop star Rick Astley onstage!

Grohl addressed the huge crowd:

“We just learned this today. Ladies and gentleman, would you please welcome our new best friend, Rick Astley,”

Astley responded:

“This is f—ing crazy,”

“I just met him two minutes ago.” joked Grohl

“C’mon, you motherf—ers!” Astley shouted at the crowd as the band began playing the 1991 Nirvana classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

However, Astley then 'Rickrolled' the entire audience when he started singing his own lyrics to “Never Gonna Give You Up” over the song instead — and it fit actually worked!
