Migs Blog: Rick-Grohl'ed!

August 21, 2017

Well…Dave Grohl once again proves that he is having more fun being a rock star than anyone else.

The Foo Fighters just played a festival in Japan where Rick Astley was playing too.  So they brought him on stage for one of the best Rickrolls yet…some would call it, a “Rick-Grohl". 

What I love about this is that they didn’t just cover “Never Gonna Give You Up”…they decided to create a mash-up with that song, and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”…they're actually playing the chords from "Never Gonna Give You Up" in the style of "Teen Spirit".  Check it out…

I’m guessing the idea of combining these two songs had something to do with an actual mash-up that someone made back in 2009, where they took the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music and matched it with Rick’s vocal track for “Never Gonna Give You Up”.
