Dave Grohl Performs a “Love Song” for the Westboro Baptist Church


Infamous for protesting the funerals of gay US soldiers, the Westboro Baptist Church recently turned its hate toward the Foo Fighters, launching a vicious Twitter assault while calling for a picket of their September 16 show in Kansas City. What has them so upset? The band’s gay love song, “Keep it Clean (Hot Buns)” which they debuted back 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 at the time. “[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.”

Dave Grohl responded to the controversy by dressing up as God, rolling up with his band on a flatbed truck, and performing a live version of “Hot Buns” for representatives who were picketing outside of the venue. Watch a video of his inspired celebration of “man muffins” after the jump.
