(Getty Images)more pics » Dave Grohl (From YouTube) The Foo Fighters had a little something up their sleeve when the infamous Westboro Baptist Church decided to picket one of their shows in Kansas City over the weekend. The small church, based in Topeka, KS, and run by Fred Phelps, is known for picketing colleges, concerts and soldiers' funerals to spread its anti-gay message.

Dave Grohl and his bandmates rolled onto the street in front of the Sprint Center in the city's recently renovated Power & Light District dressed in the long wigs and trucker outfits from their "Hot Buns" video. They launched into their faux-country song "Keep It Clean" for the crowd and as they came to a break, Grohl launched into a speech on tolerance.

"Ladies and gentleman, God bless America, land of the free, home of the brave, it takes all kinds. I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, or whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady Gaga or Lady Armadillo. It takes all kinds.

"Men loving women, and women loving men, and men loving men, and women loving men. You know we all like to watch that. But what I'd like to say is God bless America, ya'll."

Check out the video below to see the impromptu performance (and watch the "Hot Buns" video if you dare).
