The Foo Fighters have Rickrolled the Westboro Baptist Church.

The church, which has a history of protesting LGBT people, Jews, and military servicemen, was picketing at the entrance of the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Friday, where the band was scheduled to perform.

The Foo Fighters responded by driving up to the venue, to wild cheers from fans. Bandleader David Grohl and his band led a clap-along to Rick Astley’s 1987 single, “Never Gonna Give You Up” (the term “Rickrolling” refers to hyperlinking a seemingly relevant topic to Astley’s video).

Grohl topped the performance off with a sign that read “Keep It Clean;” bandmate Taylor Hawkins brandished another sign, “You Got Rick Roll’d (Again).”

Watch the entire episode unfold above.
