Foo Fighters interrupted a protest by radical hate group Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri “rick rolling” a demonstration by the homophobic cult.
To “Rick Roll’ is to blast the Rick Astley hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ through the speakers, loud enough to drown out the protesters and it worked.
The band arrived on a pick-up truck outside the Westboro Baptist Church protesters with signs reading ‘You’ve been Rock Roll’d” and ‘Keep It Clean’.
Foo Fighters were performing in Kansas City on Friday night.
