Brent Smith of Shinedown: “I’ve Seen Songs Cure Cancer”

Metal

There is no cure for cancer, no matter what anyone tells you. Despite what fake news articles on social media tell you, there’s no secret cure to cancer that is being suppressed by Big Pharma because they can’t make money off of it. And, despite what hippies may tell you, a vegan raw food diet absolutely cannot cure cancer. But apparently frontman Brent Smith of Shinedown says that music can cure cancer somehow. I mean, it would be nice if it could, but it can’t.

Recently, Smith and Shinedown guitarist Zach Myers appeared on the Rock Sugar Magic podcast, hosted by Kerri Kasem, and Kasem told the band members about how Shinedown’s music helped her friend get through her treatment for stage four cancer. Smith responded with some hyperbolic statements about the power of music. Here’s what he had to say, as transcribed by Blabbermouth:

“I’ve gotta tell you, though, that’s something that, especially in the last few years, I’ve noticed it more like, music is a powerful thing. And especially when you’re talking about songs, but exactly what you said — I’ve seen songs cure cancer. It’s pretty powerful. There’s just a different level inside of that. Because we’re all connected to one another.”

Smith is employing some exaggeration there. I don’t think he literally thinks that music can cure cancer, but is rather using it to make some point about the healing power of music and all that kumbaya shit. At least, I hope he’s not naïve enough to think that music can literally cure cancer. Because if I had cancer and had to choose between chemotherapy and listening to Shinedown to cure it, I’m pretty sure I’d choose the chemo. In fact, if I was given the choice between anything and listening to Shinedown, I probably wouldn’t choose to listen to Shinedown.
