Dada Life Fans Prove They're the Best in the World After Olle Announces He Has Cancer

Here are some of their most heartwarming and/or ridiculous responses to the news.
November 22, 2014, 1:22am

Dada Life are a ridiculous whirlwind of energy that cause a ruckus wherever they go. When they're not dousing THUMP writers in champagne and banana peels, they're showing up to festivals in hot air balloons, breaking world records, and petitioning the UN to acknowledge Dada Land as a sovereign nation – all while making some of the bossiest electronic music around.

One half of the duo, Olle Cornéer, took to the web today to announce to fans that he has cancer. "Yes, it's cancer," Olle told fans, "but after talking to the doctors, I've realized that this particular form really is "the best" cancer you can get. Most people that get treatment become completely free from it."


"I will be away from touring for a while," he continued. "I don't know exactly how long right now, but I aim to be back at the end of this year. Stefan will still be doing all the shows and play a full Dada Life-set. It won't be long until the bass hits you in the stomach and you look up towards stage and see two DADAS bouncing up and down smiling."

True to their name, Dada Life have way too much life in 'em to be kept down by some malignant neoplasm, and their fans are all too aware of that. They took over the comments section with support and attitude. Check out some of our favs:

Get well soon, Olle!
