Rick Astley recently released a remastered version of his debut album, Whenever You Need Somebody, which includes his notorious hit Never Gonne Give You Up.

About a year ago, he decided that he wanted to remake the music video of the song frame by frame via animation. And today, we got to see that dream come true.

He says he loves it. Do you love it too? I do.

Do you know the origin story of RickRoll?

We know what being RickRolled is about, but do you know how it all started?

In honor of the 15th anniversary of the global phenomenon, the Guinness Book of World Records shared how it all began, “On March 29, 2007, Rockstar released their latest GTA IV trailer, which caused their website to crash.

“ then used the defunct link to redirect people to Rick Astley’s 1987 hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.”

That is kind of a letdown. But, I am never gonna give up RickRolling people. Will you give it up?

Oh, there is one more interesting fact about RickRolling that they shared. To find out what it is, then you must click here.


Who knew Rick Astley could curse?

Rick Astley likes to go on YouTube and record covers from musicians you would not expect him to sing like Foo Fighters’ Everclear.

Today, he sang Gayle’s ABCDEFU, and I cannot stop listening to it. I am not sure if it is because I like it more than the original (sorry, Gayle. I do love your f*cking single.). Or it could be because I got turned on every time he sang f*ck. And that word is mentioned a lot in this tune.

I feel like I have been Rick Rolled and not in the way it is intended to be. And that is a very good thing.


New Kids on the Block brings it back to 1989

New Kids on the Block is hitting the road starting in May with Rick Astley, Salt-N-Pepa, and En Vogue. So, they all decided to release a song that would take us back to when they had their biggest hits, the ’80s.

If you are going to do that, then you might as well make a music video paying tribute to the biggest videos of the decade. And that is what is they did with Bring Back the Time.

So what videos are featured in Bring Back The Time? They are Journey’s Separate Ways, Devo’s Whip It, A Flock Of Seagulls’ I Ran (So Far Away), Talking Heads’ Once in a Lifetime, Twisted Sister’s We’re Not Going to Take It, Robert Plant’s Addicted to Love, Madonna’s Vogue, Duran Duran’s Rio, Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell, Toni Basil’s Mickey, Max Headroom, and Michael Jackson’s Beat It.

If the tour is as much fun as the video, then everyone is going to be Bitchin’ time. Unless they play as bad as those wigs.


Listen to Rick Astley turn Never Gonna Give You Up into a Rock song
May 26th, 2021 under Foo Fighters, Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]

Anyone who has been Rick Rolled can tell you that Never Going to Give You Up is a Pop song. Right?

Well, what if Rick Astley took his song and did it to Nirvana’s arrangement for Smells Like Teen Spirit. You see, Dave Grohl said that both arrangements are the same.

The other night the singer from Foo Fighters was on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and they played a game. The two of them had to guess what song The Roots were playing. Sounds easy, but they changed up the songs, so they were harder to identify.

Astley was playing on the internets and saw this bit, so it inspired him. Therefore, he took out his guitar and changed up the song we all know so well to make it edgier. Someone send this video to a record producer because I need to have it on my playlist now, now, now. It would be the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best.
