Rick Astley RickRolls his own song
October 22nd, 2019 under Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]


Rick Astley has a new album coming out on October 29th and it is full of songs that we know. His songs. However, The Best of Me has a twist. As in, he reimagined several of his tunes including his biggest hits Never Gonna Give You Up and Together Forever.

Today, he released the audio for NGGYU and it so different. Yet, still the same. In a time when so many ’80s singles are getting, what I like to call, the coffee shop treatment. The singer decided to do it to his own song. Which gives it a whole new life for a new generation. It also allows the old one to enjoy a favorite in a new way. A way that has me playing it in a loop.

What do you think of it?

Could Brexit be RickRolled by Prime Minister Rick Astley?
April 4th, 2019 under Rick Astley. [ Comments: 1 ]


Rick Astley announced today that he is running for Prime Minister of the United Kingdom because “This Brexit thing has to be sorted out one way or the other.”

I think he could get the job done because you know he is, “Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry. Never gonna say goodbye. Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.”

That and I am pretty sure he would not take crap from Donald Trump, the US President craps all over the UK.

Therefore, call everyone you know in the UK and tell them to vote for Rick Astley as Prime Minister. I already asked my friends on the other side of the pond to do it.

Foo Fighters are never gonna give up Rick Astley
September 20th, 2017 under Foo Fighters, Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]


Last month, the Foo Fighters saw Rick Astley, whom they never met before, watching them backstage at a festival in Japan, and they invited him out to sing Never Gonna Give You Up with them. Since then the music world has been buzzing about it, wondering when they are going to get together again to Rickroll us. Yesterday we got that answer, when the Dave Grohl and his band were playing in London, and then their new best friend joined them on stage to sing that song again. Delighting fans of both musicians once again.

Now, we want to know when they are going to take the Bromance from the stage to the recording studio already. They need to record this version already because it will top the charts. Then they need to go on tour together. Hell, what about a reality show? I just love how they bring out the Rocker out of Astley!

That Foo Fighters/Rick Astley performance is even more rockin’ than we knew
September 15th, 2017 under Foo Fighters, Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]


Remember last month, when Rick Astley performed Never Gonna Give You Up with the Foo Fights at the Tokyo’s Summer Sonic festival and we thought it was pretty cool? Turns out that Rickroll was even more bitchin’ than we could have ever imagined.

Dave Grohl was on Hamish and Andy’s radio show via Skype and they asked them about that performance and Astley’s cursing on stage with them. Grohl then told the duo how the performance came about. They knew Astley was on the bill, but they missed his performance. Then when they were rehearsing, they were playing his biggest song and realized it sounded a lot like Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. Which makes you wonder does Astley have a lawsuit on his hands?

Anyways, as the Fighters were performing, they saw Astley watching them from the side of the stage. Therefore, Grohl went up to him, introduced himself and vice versa. Then Grohl asked his new friend if he wanted to do that tune with them with their Grunge take on it and the rest is Rock history. What an awesome moment in Rock history it is?

So when Grohl said that he just met his new friend 2 minutes ago, he was literal. Seriously, Grohl is the coolest guy in Rock. Just when you think that he cannot be any more cooler, he does something like this. I just want to be friends with him for one night only. It would be one of the greatest night of my life and I would never forget about it for the rest of my life.

Foo Fighters get Rickrolled by Rick Astley!
August 21st, 2017 under Foo Fighters, Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]


Remember when Foo Fighters took on that ridiculously hateful church group by Rickrolling them almost 2 years ago to the day? Well yesterday, the band Rick Rolled the Summer Sonic audience in Tokyo with Rick Astley singing his unforgettable hit Never Going to Give You Up and the band playing backup. Much to the delight of Foo Fighters, Astley, the audience and us! Forget the eclipse, this is the greatest thing you will see all day!

Hell, I would not be surprised if that version of the song with a little of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit mixed in is released as a single. Sh!t, I would be surprised if the new friends go on tour together. Could you imagine what the audience would look like? It could bring peace between the Preppies and the Grungers! Are they fighting, or should I say Foo fighting?
