A real-life Rick-roll is 100 times better than an internet Rick-roll.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and YouTube's most-beloved '80s singer Rick Astley performed a surprise set at the Moth Club in London Friday night, including Astley's infamous tune "Never Gonna Give You Up."

Pictures and videos circulated around the internet, and it looks like everyone had a great time. How could you not?

Here's another angle:

Grohl wasn't expecting to get such a reaction from the crowd in attendance and ended up playing five songs, four of them with Astley on the drums, according to a writeup on NME. Along with "Never Gonna Give You Up," the band played some of the Foo Fighters' biggest hits including "Times Like These" and "Best of You."

The surprise appearance of the legendary musicians marked the return of Club NME, a weekly club event featuring hot new indie artists and occasional big surprise acts (like Friday's show).
