Foo Fighters took some time to spread a message of love before their Aug. 5th concert in Bonner Springs, Kansas. The band arrived in town to see the irrelevant Westboro Baptist Church protesting their appearance. The small group was carrying signs reading “No Peace for the Wicked” and “God Hates Your Idols.” The Foos decided to deliver a message of their own, a message of love. The band dressed as their alter ego “The Dee Gees,” arrived in a flatbed truck fully instrumentilized and playing music. Lead singer Dave Grohl had this to say to the already dancing protesters. The flatbed slowed to a stop as the band broke down on “You Should Be Dancing”,
“Ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say,” he said. “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? Because I think it’s about love. That’s what I think. I deliver all of my love, and you shouldn’t be hating. You know what you should be doing? You should be dancing!”
“1…2… you know what to do… The band picked it up again as Grohl pointed and continued. He said, “I saw your momma dancin’, she was dancin!” Grohl then started singing the Dee Gees cover of “You Should be Dancing.” as the flatbed slowly pulled away, roller skater in tow.”
