Foo Fighters and Rick Astley rickroll Summer Sonic Festival — watch

Foo Fighters perform Never Gonna Give You Up with Rick Astley.

The Foos are in Japan for their headlining performance at Summer Sonic Festival.

"This is f.ing insane", opined Foo Fighters frontman (and former Nirvana drummer) Dave Grohl.

But Grohl, a genious brain, took things one step further by leading the newly-formed supergroup through a live mashup of the aforementioned Rickrollin' tune and 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.

They then launched into the track, sending the crowd into a frenzy.

YouTube commenters were quick to point out the cover's similarity to a popular mash-up of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Astley's biggest hit, which could've been the impetus behind the festival performance.

It's not every day you hear Rick Astley follow up his lyric "I just want to tell you how I'm feeling", with the crooner screaming "I'M FEELING F**KING MARVELOUS!"

Now, Dave Grohl and his bandmates are stepping it up a notch by performing a rickroll IRL - and what's more, they even enlisted the one and only Rick Astley for the occasion. I just met him two minutes ago", Grohl added, before Astley completely lowered the tone, yelling "Come on you motherfuckers!
