Just a short diary, but I wanted to share this video link, as it is awesome. The band the Foo Fighters, being targeted for protest in Kansas City by the hate group Westboro Baptist Church, decided to turn the tables and to do a Beatles on the roof/Rolling Stones on a flatbed truck thing, by showing up at the protest to serenade the hate group and to make them look like the small minded idiots that they truly are. The spontaneous street concert was recorded and broadcast on local KC news.
Here is the video
As a fan of this group, I am reminded of many of the reasons why I am a fan, by this. Dave Grohl and his fellow surviving Nirvana band member Kris Novoselic are both truly decent guys, with progressive values and sharp sense of humor. I am sure that somewhere Kurt Cobain is looking down and smiling at this performance.
(Here, incidentally, is another video of this fine performance in its entirety.)
