Watch Lamb of God frontman lead "counter-party" against Westboro Baptist Church

ABC/Randy HolmesLamb of God frontman Randy Blythe organized a demonstration Monday in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia against the Westboro Baptist Church.

Blythe led people in a "counter-party" to "drown out" the group, which was protesting the election of Danica Roem to the Virginia House of Delegates. Roem is the first openly transgender person to be elected to U.S. state legislature.

The Westboro Baptist Church is notorious for its anti-gay demonstrations, and some consider it to be a hate group.

"I'm not interested in arguing with these morons, getting upset, yelling at them," Blythe said, regarding the demonstration. "I'm interested in having a good time at their expense."

You can watch footage of Blythe's counter-party, featuring people playing kazoos and banging on plastic drums, now via social media.
