Foo Fighters Troll Westboro Baptist Church Protesters With Disco Tunes

Westboro Baptist Church protesters got a sermon they weren’t quite expecting when the Foo Fighters rolled up to their protest on Thursday night to perform some classic disco tunes and teach them a lesson about love.

The hyper-conservative church known for its homophobic and hateful rhetoric against the LGBTQ+ community were lined up against a stretch of a busy road in Bonner Springs, Kansas, to protest the band’s concert. They were armed with their usual doomsday signs that declared, “God Hates Your Idols,” “Free Will Is a Satanic Lie,” and “God Hates Pride.”

But the Foo Fighters came ready to deliver a message when they rolled up in the back of a truck to perform as their alter-egos the Dee Gees.

“Alright now, ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say,” lead singer Dave Grohl told the none too pleased audience. “Because you know what, I love you. The way I look at it is, I love everybody. Isn’t that what you are supposed to do? Shouldn’t you just love everybody? You shouldn’t be hating. You know what you should be doing? You should be dancing!”
