Staff Pick: The Cranberries

Irish rock band The Cranberries gained attention in the 1990s with songs such as “Linger” and “Zombie.” The band is one of Ireland’s most successful bands with selling over 40 million records worldwide. The band’s first two albums, “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” and “No Need to Argue,” are a must-hear for fans of 1990s alternative rock. What sets The Cranberries apart from many alternative bands is lead singer Dolores O’Riordan’s voice, whose yodeling and heavy Irish accent mix in a pleasant folksy sound. O’Riordan passed away on Jan. 15 at age 46. Her cause of death is currently unknown.
