Always looking for something to protest, members of the simply awful Westboro Baptist Church lined up outside of a Foo Fighters concerts in Kansas City, MO Aug. 22.

They didn't exactly say what their specific problem was, but they generally hate just about everything, so the Foo Fighters worked for an opportunity to test out their hateful signage.

Dave Grohl and company decided not to take it sitting down.

Well, they stayed seated, but the band members brought out a rather loud sound system and drowned out the jeers of the protesters with the sweet sounds of Rick Astley.



And all praise be to this guy:

And after that, we're sure Dave Grohl retreated to the comfort of his incredible rock star tour throne.

Yesterday, the Internet received a lovely gift in the form of 1,000 musicians all playing the same Foo Fighters song at once. The video has been viewed almost 6 million times as of this writing and has been spread to the four winds of the world wide web.

The stunt was coordinated by Fabio Zaffagnini in an attempt to get the band's attention and persuade them to play in his small northwestern Italian town of Cesena.

Gracious and classy guy that he is, Dave Grohl responded July 31, with a (vertical) video. He gave a message in Italian to the musicians and fans that put together the impressive piece of music and declared an intention for the Foo Fighters to indeed play there.

Here's our transcription of the video with the help of basic linguistic skills and Google translation:

"Hello Cesena, [Unclear, we're not that good] I don't speak Italian. Just a little, a little. This video was beautiful. Very beautiful. Thank you very much.

Yes, we are coming. Promise. I'd love to go there soon. Thank you very much. I love you. Good bye."



The Rockin' 1000, as they're called, has yet to put up a video response on their YouTube account, but they freaked out accordingly on their Facebook page.



Just goes to show you, if you want to get your favorite band's attention, gather 1,000 of your closest musician friends and make a viral sensation.

It's as easy as that.



At least 1,000 people in Italy really, really want The Foo Fighters to play a show near them.

They want it so bad that they all gathered in a field and performed the hit song Learn to Fly as an appeal to the Dave Grohl-led band.

It's a very creative way to beg.

It looks like the power of his oxycodine-induced, self-designed throne has gone to Dave Grohl's head. At a show last week, he generously allowed a fan to play the drums for the old Foo Fighters hit Big Me

There's no telling what happened to the regular drummer, but the possibility exists that they fell off the back stage and were not given the luxury of having a tour throne built for them. 

It's good to have fans.

Consequence of Sound is reporting that Dave Grohl suffered an accident while playing with the Foo Fighters in Sweden June 12. But he didn't let that stop him from being a badass.

Grohl reportedly fell during the band's performance of "Monkey Wrench" and remained on the ground for several minutes before being taken backstage. "Hey, ladies and gentlemen. I love you, but I think I just broke my leg. I really broke my leg," he told the audience.

While Grohl was attended to backstage, the rest of Foo Fighters played a set of covers sung by drummer Taylor Hawkins. Ultimately, Grohl returned to the stage with his leg wrapped and finished the concert sitting in a chair. "I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream," he proclaimed.



Thanks for continue being cooler than all of us, Dave.
