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.”

Westboro Baptist Church Gets ‘Rickrolled’ By Foo Fighters

The Foo Fighters and Westboro Baptist Church have never played well together.

To be fair, Foo has tried to teach them to “Keep it Clean” in past.

This past weekend in Kansas City, MO, the Foo Fighters kicked off their concert by driving past the Westboro Baptist Church protest outside Sprint Center. Front man Dave Grohl and Foo sat in the back of a pick up truck blaring Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” while holding signs that said “You got Rick Rolled (again).”
