The Foo Fighters drowned out hate from the Westboro Baptist Church this weekend with Rick¬†Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

Dave Grohl and his bandmates hopped in the back of a truck, and slowly cruised past the group picketing the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Friday.

“You Got Rick Rolled,” read a sign being held by drummer Taylor Hawkins, while a man dancing in a speedo held another sign advising the mean-spirited church to “keep it clean.”

The stunt has since gone viral, attracting over 4 million views on YouTube. The number is more impressive than the last time the rock band had fun with the Westboro Baptist Church protestors in 2011.
