The New York Mets were looking for a new song to play in the eighth inning. Instead, they got RickRoll'd.
The Mets invited fans to vote for their favorite song to replace Sweet Caroline. An problem arose when FARK.com readers bombarded the Mets with votes for a write-in candidate: Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.
The Astley tune actually won. Listen and watch to the fans' reaction.
The Mets will play the top six selections once apiece during the first six games of their home stand since the current song doesn't reflect the fans' sentiments. The one that draws the largest crowd response will stick. By that standard, Never Gonna Give You Up might have won with boos.
