    Dan Reynolds breaks the mold again in an anti tobacco advertisement.

    When I went to high school the cool thing to do was to try smoke cigarettes in the bathrooms without getting caught!
    I wasn’t cool.
    I didn’t smoke. I thought the smoke smelled terrible.
    It’s very different when you ARE a rock star and take a stand against substance abuse!
    There literally is a song called “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” by Ian Dury and the Blockheads.
    Perhaps in most people’s minds these things are synonymous?

    At the same time, so many musical artists have been silenced by drug use.
    Tom Petty is the latest casualty. It’s not clear if his overdose was intentional or accidental but it stopped his heart forever. His family believes his overdose was not intentional. Petty’s family said, “As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that this is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.”

    Dan Reynolds says he’s cool with the spirit of rock and roll except drug use. “I grew up worshiping Bob Marley and Kurt Cobain and the posters were all over my walls, and I feel a lot like a lot of these musicians who’ve passed on, I can’t speak on their behalf, but I think a lot of them if they could...would do all that they could to change the face of this industry as one of substance abuse,” Dan told Bilboard .
