The Westboro Baptist Church can suck it as far as the Foo Fighters are concerned. Yeah, the big, fat, homoerotic "it."
When the inbred, bigoted "church" decided to protest the Foo Fighters Kansas City show last month, the band pushed back with a satiric tribute that left the godhatesfags.com purveyors scratching their heads.
1. Grohl kicks concertgoer out of iTunes Festival for fighting
Dave Grohl has the power to do what you wish you could. You know the scene. Some asshole is in the crowd is causing a ruckus and ruining everyone's good time, yet for some reason, security refuses to do anything about it. When a "fan" (we say that with some sarcasm) started a fight in the middle of a Foo show, Grohl didn't hesitate to stop mid-song to give him a profanity-laced piece of his mind, then kick the dude out.

Question your sexuality in 3.. 2...

4. Will Ferrell and Dave Grohl sing "Leather and Lace" live
Don Henley and Stevie Nicks started it, but Will Ferrell and Grohl perfected it. Just watch the duo's intense eye contact as they sing the 1981 hit. We have a feeling both leather and lace were involved later that night.
