Watch Foo Fighters Rickroll Tokyo audience with Rick Astley appearance

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” just got some really great hair. During a Foo Fighters performance at Tokyo’s Summer Sonic festival on Sunday, the band Rickrolled the audience and invited Rick Astley to join them on stage.
“This is f—ing crazy,” Dave Grohl said after his introduction. “I just met him two minutes ago.”
Crazier yet was when the band began playing what sounded like the opening chords of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”… and then Astley jumped in with his iconic 1987 single, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” all performed with an appropriate grunge edge. (In case you’ve forgotten, Grohl was a member of Nirvana.)
“I’m feeling f—ing marvelous,” Astley, who was also performing separately during the festival, shouted mid-song.
Watch the video above (and consider yourself warned about the NSFW language).
This wasn’t Foo Fighters’ first Rickrolling, either. The group famously blasted the track as they drove by the Westboro Baptist Church picketing their concert in Kansas City in 2015. “You can’t just sit there and do nothing. You got to go out there and say what you wanna say, so we did,” Grohl said at the time.

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro offer tributes to Jerry Lewis

King of Comedy director Martin Scorsese and stars Robert De Niro and Sandra Bernhard were among those paying tribute to Jerry Lewis, who died Sunday at age 91.
“Jerry Lewis was a master. He was a giant. He was an innovator. He was a great entertainer. He was a great artist. And he was a remarkable man. I had the honor of working with him, and it was an experience I’ll always treasure. He was, truly, one of our greats,” Scorsese said in a statement.
Added De Niro in a statement, “Jerry was a pioneer in comedy and film. And he was a friend. I was fortunate to have seen him a few times over the past couple of years. Even at 91, he didn’t miss a beat… or a punchline. You’ll be missed.”
On Twitter, Bernhard added, “It was one of the great experiences of my career he was tough but one of a kind.”

Being As An Ocean buy out contract to go independent, announce new music

Cleveland-based Dead Leaves are releasing their debut album, Vultures, on Friday, Aug. 25 via Take This To Heart Records, and today they’re streaming the album early—and sharing the story about how their powerful, vulnerable debut came to be.

“The entire record is about vulnerability,” vocalist Elliott Blair explains. “Every song on the new record touches on some form of vulnerability. For example, ‘Talk Me Down’ is about building trust back up with someone that you’ve lost trust with. ‘Sunrise’ is about alzheimer's and losing touch with yourself; being vulnerable in the grand sun.”

The vulnerability isn’t anything new to Dead Leaves, who have always been boldly honest in their offerings. For the band, it’s their sonic delivery that has been discovered and solidified on this release.

“It wasn’t intentional at first. We were playing with a couple new songs that we had written and decided after one or two songs that that was the direction we wanted to go,” Blair says.
