Always a champion of the common man, Foo Fighters took a detour from their Wasting Light tour stop in Kansas to take a drive by a Westboro Baptist Church protest and say a thing or two about a thing or two. Playing a version of their countrified “Keep it Clean” song (the muzak playing at the beginning of the surreal, homoerotic “Hot Buns” video released to the internet a ways back) from the back of a big truck, and dressed like the bearded truckers from the “buns” video, lead singer Dave Grohl took a minute to offer the picketers some food for thought:
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 lovin’ women and women lovin’ men, and men lovin’ men and women lovin’ women, you all know we like to watch that. God bless America ya’ll.
Pretty cool stuff. What’s more, in the hours following the stunt, reports over the country confirm that Grohl and company’s heroic efforts have already single-handedly ended homophobia in 12 out of 50 American states, with Idaho and Colorado expected to fall by the end of the day. Hooray Foo Fighters!
