Thousands of Fark and Digg users stuffed the virtual ballot box at Shea Stadium with requests for Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" to play during the 8th inning. The Mets now say the team will hold a runoff, since the winning tune probably doesn't reflect true Mets fans' wishes. The Mets will play the top six selections during the first six home games. The song that draws the largest crowd response will win. Other song choices included "Livin' On A Prayer" by Bon Jovi and Julia Allison fave "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations. In the clip above, it doesn't sound like the crowd has much of a reaction to the song. We're glad the Shea Stadium crowd knows that rickrolling is dead, too. UPDATE: Major League Baseball has issued DMCA notices to remove video of the RickRolling.
