Dave Grohl: Why Foo Rickrolled Westboro Baptist Church

After the exciting pre-show activity of rickrolling the Westboro Baptist Church at their Kansas City concert last week, Foo Fighter’s front man Dave Grohl wanted to clear a few things up.

During the concert at Sprint Center  Grohl said to the audience, “You can’t just sit there and do nothing, you got to go out there, and say what you wanna say, so we did . . . we figured, you know what, why don’t we just f**king RickRoll their ass? Cause nothing says love like a little Rick Astley in your life, you know what I’m saying?”

Just before beginning “My Hero” Grohl continued,”So I’m going to dedicate this song to all the people who go out and speak their mind, to stand up for what they think is right, because every time we got to stand up in this city in front of them, we do it because we feel like we’re standing up for what we think is right.”

Foo Fighters Rick Roll Westboro Baptist Church

Above you will find our nomination for Rick Roll of the CENTURY! Dave and the boys decided to send a message to a group of protesters outside the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

Armed with signs of their own, the band rolled by the line of protesters in the back of a pick-up truck proudly declaring that they would never “give you up”.

A crowd of fans swarmed the truck and effectively ended the protest…if only for a few awesome minutes.
