Westboro Baptist Church Plan to Picket Jeff Hanneman's Funeral
NME is today reporting that the Westboro Baptist Church is planning to picket the funeral of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. The fundamentalist Christian group has previously targeted the funerals of US soldiers. They have also picketed concerts of artists such as Radiohead and Foo Fighters.

According to an announcement on the group's Twitter page, they plan to perform a cover of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train" at the funeral:

Slayer fans have already started to organize a counter-picket, with some suggesting throwing red-paint-filled water balloons at the group in response. Gwar front man Oderus Urungus has also taken to twitter to express his anger at the Westboro Baptist Church:
