Trivia / Rick Astley

  • Career Resurrection: Probably due to success of the Rick Roll, Rick Astley has recorded his first single in 17 years: Lights Out.
  • One-Hit Wonder: He was huge in the late '80s and is most certainly not a one-hit wonder, having two #1 singles and numerous Top 10 hits in the US alone. That being said, he is often thought of as a one-hit wonder today due to "Never Gonna Give You Up" reentering pop-culture via the Rick Roll and younger audiences are shocked when they discovered he had more than one hit song.
