Foo Fighters Troll Westboro Baptist Church With Drive-By Disco

The Foo Fighters have trolled the Westboro Baptist Church with their alter ego group The Dee Gees.

The legendary rock group have created a spin-off disco persona where they fuse their rocking roots with the sounds and lyrics of the '70s scene.

The Foo Fighters were all set to perform in Kansas when they heard a group of Westboro Baptist Church protestors had gathered outside the stadium.

The church is notorious for picketing in all sorts of places for all sorts of reasons, from funerals for dead soldiers to Ireland welcoming same-sex marriage.

They have a long running feud with the Foo Fighters and they certainly weren't going to let the band perform in Bonner Springs without a few protest signs and chants.

But they were probably never expecting the Foo Fighters to come dressed in their all-white Dee Gees regalia and yell at them on the back of a flatbed truck outside the Azura Ampitheater.

The song 'You Should Be Dancing' blasted over the speakers on the vehicle and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl yelled: "I've got something to say. Because you know what? 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? Cause I think it's about LOVE. That's what I think.

"I think we're all about love. And you shouldn't be hatin'. You know what y'all should be doin'? You should be dancin'!"

Footage of the epic troll has gone viral on social media and everyone was loving the savagery.

One person wrote: "Fighting stupidity with dancing. Fighting hatred with love."

Another added: "F**king awesome!!!! love Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters!"

A third said: "Not going to lie, was never really a fan but The Bee Gees covers and this has elevated my liking to higher than ever levels."

The Westboro Baptist Church hit back at the stunt on social media and tried to get the last laugh.

The group said: "Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl claims he loves everybody and Westboro Baptist does not. Hello! There's no love in encouraging sin. Someone might accuse Dave of being a ... Pretender."

The band and the church has been feuding for years and they protest every time the Foo Fighters come to Kansas.

The church claimed their song 'Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)' is the work of the devil.

So, in response to that, the Foo Fighters trolled them 10 years ago and performed the song on a flatbed truck right outside the church's headquarters in the state.
