The church announced plans to picket the band’s concert on August 30th, following many previous occasions where the group has planned to picket pop concerts in the area.
However, Foo Fighters got wind of the church’s plans and devised a counter attack against the extremist group.
Hours before their show at the Sprint Center, the band showed up on the picket line of the Westboro Baptist church on the back of an American flag decked rig truck in country trucker costumes.
The band performed their spoof country song “Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)”, drowning out protests from the anti-gay group with lyrics such as: “Driving all night, got a hankering for something, Think I’m in the mood for some hot-man muffins, Mmmm, sounds so fine, yes indeed.”
During an interlude in the song, Grohl told the crowd: “God Bless America! It takes all kinds; 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. Men loving women and women loving men and men loving men and women loving women — you all know we like to watch that. But what I’d like to say is, God Bless America, y’all!”
