What’s so great about a 21-year-old photo of two grinning pop stars against a background of, well, nothing really? Why, the fact that the duo in question is comprised of infamous grouch-genius Morrissey and Rick Astley, one of the Internet’s longest-running punchlines, of course! It’s especially notable that the frequently pouty Moz seems just delighted to hang with a guy we never imagined he’d have much respect for. The scene took place at Top of the Pops in 1989.
