The Foo Fighters have trolled members of the Westboro Baptist Church after the hate group picketed at one of the rock band’s concerts in Kansas.
The musicians were performing in the city of Bonner Springs on Thursday night when Westboro protesters arrived outside the concert venue.
The group brandished signs bearing phrases such as ‘No Peace for the Wicked’ and ‘God Hates Your Idols’, before the band decided to call them out.
Frontman Dave Grohl and bandmates dressed up as their alter egos, ‘The Dee Gees’, and assembled on a flatbed truck to slowly drove past the protesters.
The Dee Gees are the Foo Fighters’ parody of the iconic 70s group The Bee Gees, and they began blaring disco tunes from the truck before Grohl explicitly addressed the Westboro members.
The moment was caught on camera, with Grohl heard stating: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say. I love you! I do. The way I look at it, I love everybody. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do? Can’t you just love everybody?
He continued: ‘Because I think it’s about love. That’s what I think. I deliver all of my love, and you shouldn’t be hating.’

The group then began playing the Bee Gees hit ‘You Should Be Dancing’, before Grohl told members of the hate group: ‘You know what you should be doing? You should be dancing!’
Fans of the rock band applauded Grohl for the way he dealt with the Westboro protesters, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Did not think I could love Dave Grohl any more than I already do, but he keeps finding new ways to be awesome.’
Another added: ‘Awesome! These people should take a leaf out of Dave Grohl’s & the Foo’s book, there would be a lot less hate & division in the World. Top trolling!’
A third person humorously chimed in, stating: ‘I think these Westboro loonies were just trying to get a free @foofighters gig.’

It’s not the first time the Foo Fighters – whose most recent album is titled ‘Hail Satan’ – have clashed with the Westboro Baptist Church.
Back in 2011, the hate group staged a protest outside another of the band’s concerts in Kansas.
The rockers responded by similarly trolled the hate group by similarly performing on a flatbed truck right in front of the protesters.
And in 2015, the Westboro Church picketed another outdoor Kansas concert held by the Foo Fighters, before the band fought back.
Aided by their fans, the musicians drowned out the sounds of the protesters who were vastly outnumbered.
