Rick Astley covers Slipknot. Sort of.

When it comes to laying artists out on the music spectrum, the distance between Slipknot and Rick Astley has to be a parsec or two. Yet thanks to a wormhole created by TikTok, the two are together at last.

If you go to Astley’s TikTok account, you’ll find him doing all sorts of weird things, including miming along to Slipknot’s “Duality.” I don’t understand the snowman head, though.


On this last day of Christmas, I bring you, Slipknot! ##slipknot ##ricktok ##rickastley ##fyp

♬ Duality – Slipknot
