Similar to the Duckrolled internet fad that was around about a year ago. Rickrolled is generally used on forums, message boards, or IRC. You click a link expecting to see something relating to the thread, and instead it takes you to the Rick Astley music video "Never gonna give you up".

Popularized by the SomethingAwful and World of Warcraft forums in March of 2007, it's starting to disperse onto more websites as of May.
Someone posts a thread that says "check out my new car", when you click the link it takes you to a YouTube video of Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up" music video. To which you usually reply with a derogatory remarks or "RICKROLLED."
