Dave Grohl & Rick Astley Rickrolled a London Club

August 19, 2019

Years ago, there was was a common trend on the internet to troll people with the '80s hit song "Never Gonna Give You Up" by UK pop singer Rick Astley. It was hilarious for some and unbearable for others. A meme commonly known as a "rickroll."

 But if both Astley and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters "rickroll" you live and in-person, consider that a badge of honor.

That was the case for the audience at Hackney's Moth Club in East End, London for an event for NME where Grohl surprised everyone with an impromptu live performance. As Grohl was halfway through singing "Never Gonna Give You Up", everyone as in for a double-surprise when the man himself, Rick Astley, joined Grohl onstage to finish the song.

Although this isn't the first time Grohl and Astley rickrolled an audience, it has become a big crowd-pleaser when the duo decides to pull a surprise show.
