Mets Fans Boo Rick Astley

The Mets and it's fans were Rick Roll'd on April 8, 2008. The New York Mets had a Poll on their website for a new song to be played during the 8th inning. The link was posted on Digg to encourage everyone to vote for Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up" song. The song and it's video have become known as the Rick Roll. The Rick Roll gained popularity on the Internet as a link to a youtube video or website that plays the video. The winner of the poll was Rick Astley. There were a total of 5 million votes for the Rick Roll. In the end the Mets decided to let the fans at the game decide the new song and played the top 5 winners. They felt it was an unfair vote since most of the people who voted were not Mets fans. The fans did not seem happy about the Rick Astley song and boo'd it when it was played (as seen/heard in video below).
