Foo Fighters hilariously ‘Rick Roll’ the hateful Westboro Baptist Church

Very Grohl...

As if we needed any further reason to love Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters…

The lads were in Kansas on Friday for a concert date – the home of the horrendous and offensive Westboro Baptist Church, who regularly spout homophobic, racist and hateful bile to anyone who’ll listen – even at funerals.

Well the Foo Fighters weren’t having any of that. They found out where the Westboro mob were protesting and rolled up in a pickup truck – blaring our Rick Astley’s classic (now troll) hit, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ at full volume.

They were accompanied by a big tattooed bloke wearing rainbow speedos…which wasn’t exactly to the Church’s liking. The Kansas locals, however, loved it – as do we.

Never change, Dave and the lads. You beautiful, hilarious b*stards.
