Picking a fight with Dave Grohl is apparently more ill-advised than previously thought, as members of the Westboro Baptist Church have again found. Back in 2011, the Foo Fighters responded to a WBC protest of their concert in Kansas City by driving by in a flatbed truck and performing "Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)." The Foo again played KC on Friday, WBC again protested, and as Slate reports, Dave Grohl and Co. this time opted to serenade them with Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" in something of a drive-by Rickroll. As Sharan Shetty writes, "Your move, WBC." Video in the gallery. (More Foo Fighters stories.)
