Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: “Centerfold" by J. Geils Band

Watch Rick Astley Cover AC/DC’s ‘Highway to Hell’

This hard rock cover is never gonna let you down.

By Hayden Wright

This year, Rick Astley stepped out of the shadow of a meme that won’t die to release a studio album of new music entitled 50. During a show in Los Angeles to promote the new material, Astley performed a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” accompanying himself on drums. Though the energized hard rock song is worlds away from “Never Gonna Give You Up,” fans got a clear view of Astley’s undersung versatility.

In addition to topping the UK album charts, 50 has spawned Astley’s first sold-out United States shows in 25 years. Check out footage from the performance here:
