Rick Astley is a god to many though a nemesis to others. Some find the singer so great that they play Never Gonna Give You Up for two hours non-stop during a lesson of Woodwork to drown out the Populars' Dubstep.

General InformationEdit

Richard Paul "Rick" Astley (born 6 February 1966) is an English singer-songwriter, musician and radio personality. He is known for his 1987 song, "Never Gonna Give You Up", which was a #1 hit single in 25 countries.
