For the last ten years, Foo Fighters have had to face Westboro Baptist Church’s protesters, who’ve picketed his band’s shows when they perform in Kansas. So in the past years, Foo Fighters organized counter-protest performances.
The band’s tour returned to Kansas, reigniting their longstanding feud with the Westboro members, which routinely descend on the parking lot outside Foo Fighters shows with their hate-filled signs. The right-wing group is known by its hate speech against atheists, Jews, Muslims, members of the LGBT community and other citizen groups.
Dave Grohl and his bandmates responded with music and dressing up as their disco alter egos, 'The Dee Gees'. Then drove along in front of the protesters performing a lengthy rendition of “You Should Be Dancing!”
“Ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say. Because you know what? I love you! I do. The way I look at it, I love everybody. That’s what you’re supposed to do. I deliver all of my love, and you shouldn’t be hating. You should be dancing!”

And you don’t have to be a star to rock! This year’s edition of Obscene Extreme, a festival held in the Czech Republic dedicated to heavy metal, was marked by a stage invasion by a baby! However, the protective headphones left the child calmly admiring the headbanging that was taking place all over.
