Foos and their “new best friend” Astley were both at Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival over the weekend, and Foo Fighters brought their new mate on stage during their headlining set, with frontman Dave Grohl saying, “This is fuckin’ crazy. I just met him two minutes ago.”
Footage of the performance (below) sees Astley scream at the crowd, “COME ON YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!”, before the new BFFs launch into a song which sounds a whole lot like ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.
Shortly after, Astley starts singing ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ lyrics over the top, and the masterful Rickroll is complete. Watch footage of the glorious moment, below.
Astley is a known Foo Fighters fan, and even released a bizarre cover of ‘Everlong’ last year.
Foo Fighters are gearing up to release their new album Concrete And Gold on 15th September.
