Foo Fighters ‘Rick Roll’ Westboro Baptist Church protesters

With the sound of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” blaring, members of the Foo Fighters staged their own protest against members of the Westboro Baptist Church Friday.

Band members held signs that read “Keep it Clean,” and “You got Rick Rolled” in front of church protesters before the band’s show in Kansas City.

A video of the Foo Fighters ‘Rick Roll’ was posted to YouTube Saturday.

The band has had run-ins with the conservative congregation in the past.

Church members protested out front of a 2001 Foo Fighters performance in Kansas City as well. That time the band dressed up and performed a song “Keep it Clean” atop a trailer in front of the protesters.
