Rocking down the Rick-rolled “Highway”

Rocking down the Rick-rolled “Highway”

Rick Astley ACDC

File this one under ‘covers I thought I would never ever see in my lifetime’.

Rick Astley, he of the classic 80’s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” and subsequent ludicrous online phenomenon of being “Rick rolled”, tackled the AC/DC classic “Highway to Hell” during a recent gig.  Don’t believe me? Click below and see for yourself.

As for most ridiculous cover, my favorite remains Tom Jones re-doing the Lenny Kravitz classic “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” (and I LOVE it!), with anything from the William Shatner catalog coming in second.

Thoughts? What’s the most ridiculous cover tune you’ve ever seen or heard?
