It ain’t hip-hop…but it’s a cool move by some classy dudes so I’m talkin’ about it.
Unafraid to get political — and goofy — the Foo Fighters put the two together in a surprise counter-protest against a notorious anti-gay hate church on Friday.
Set to play a concert in Kansas City, Missouri that evening, the band put on a incredible show hours before the first tickets were even ripped. Led by lead singer Dave Grohl, the group showed up at the Westboro Baptist Church‘s picket against their performance at the city’s Sprint Center, riding in the back of a rig truck and rocking out.
You know the
good ol’ people fuckin’ scumbags of this church. They are the world class asshats that show up at the funeral services for military men & woman killed in the line of duty, carrying signs that say things like “God hates your tears for dead soldiers!”, “God hates America”, “Pray for more dead soldiers” and “Fags die, God laughs”.
Fuckin’ pieces of shit, I tell you. Anyways, I digress.
Playing their fun, faux-country trucker ode “Keep It Clean (Hot Buns),” the Fighters dressed in the same costumes that they wear in their nudity-filled spoof video for the song. And so as the hate spewed forth from the lips of the small, vitriolic group, their words were drowned out by amplified phrases, 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 announced, “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!”
Here’s the video of the event, which was reported by the city’s NBC Action News. Click here to see the real video for the “Keep It Clean (Hut Buns)” tune.
