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.
