On August 30th 2011 Westboro Baptist Church tried to picket a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City but the band had a little something up their sleeve.
The band fought back against the anti-gay protesters from the bigoted church when they arrived at the protest on a flat-bed lorry, bedecked with hay bales and American flags and dressed specially for the occasion.
The band sang 'Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)', a gay love song they debuted last month and mocked representatives from Fred Phelps' misguided and idiotic organisation.

Grohl taunted the fools; "Driving all night, got a hankering for something," he sang, "Think I'm in the mood for some hot man muffins. Mmmm, sounds so fine, yes indeed."
"I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady Gaga or Lady Antebellum, it takes all kinds! Men loving women, and women loving men, and men loving men, and women loving women … God bless America!"
They later repeated the performance inside, as part of their official gig.
Foo Fighters became a target for the Westboro Baptist Church after posting their 'Hot Buns' video in August.
"The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic," Fred Phelps wrote on the church's website.
"[The Foo Fighters] have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags."
Phelps' organisation is infamous for its headline-grabbing protests, including pickets at the funeral of the great Ronnie James Dio.

MetalTalk.net comment: We think Fred Phelps protests too loudly on gay matters. He really should come out of the closet.
We're no experts on spiritual or religious matters but surely this bitter crank who claims to speak on behalf of God should know that the God represented in the Bible is not a God of hatred and would definitely not approve of Phelps' hate campaigns.
