Searching for a way to counter the Westboro Baptist Church’s weird protests? If you can find the Foo Fighters, you have the solution to that problem.

On Friday evening in Kansas City, Missouri, the renowned rock band staged an impromptu mini-concert against the church, who lined up to protest the band’s upcoming concert. Performing on a truck that drowned out the church member’s noises, lead singer David Grohl offered the crowd an all-loving, all-included monologue.

“God Bless America!” he said. “It takes all kinds; I don’t care if you’re black or white or purple or green, whether you’re Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady gaga or Lady Antebellum. Men loving women and women loving men and men loving men and women loving women — you all know we like to watch that. But what I’d like to say is, God Bless America, y’all!”

WATCH: Video from the Foo Fighters, which appeared on September 17, 2011.
