Rick Astley performs at L'Alhambra on May 2, 2017 in Paris.

Foo Fighters played Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival on Saturday (Aug. 19) and so too did Rick Astley, so of course they got together during the Foos’ headlining set to perform a grungy rendition of Astley’s eternal meme and ’80s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up.” “This is --kin’ crazy — I just met him two minutes ago,” Dave Grohl said. Then Astley screamed, “Come on you motherf--kers!”
