The Westboro Baptist Church is seriously picking on the wrong guys this time. On Friday, a group of people from the church protested against homosexuality in front of the Kansas City Sprint Center, where Foo Fighters were to perform that night. In the true spirit of rock, the band rickrolled them.

From the back of a truck, Dave Grohl and his bandmates danced to Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up, which became a bait-and-switch internet meme several years ago. They also held up signs that read "Keep It Clean" and "You Got Rick Roll'd (Again)," as a throwback to when Foo Fighters took on a WBC protest in 2011.

Foo Fighters, our heroes.
