The Foo Fighters Rickrolled the Westboro Baptist Church and It Was Amazing

Check out their perfect prank

Liz Raftery

When members of the Westboro Baptist Church attempted to protest a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City on Friday, they quickly learned that the joke's on them.

The extremist group - known for brandishing anti-gay signs that read "God Hates F--s" and other slogans at funerals, concerts and the like - set up a station outside the Sprint Center, where the Foo Fighters were performing, on Friday night. But singer Dave Grohland his bandmates weren't about to take the demonstration lying down.

Instead, Grohl & Co. staged a live-action Rickroll, drove through the crowd on the back of a pickup truck, clapping along to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" and carrying signs that read "Keep It Clean" and "You Got Rick Roll'd (Again)."

This isn't the first time the two groups have tussled. In 2011, the Foo Fighters released an anti-WBC video of themselves dressed in redneck garb and singing an improvised country song called "Keep It Clean" in the church's home state of Kansas.
