Love the Cranberries. Sad to hear she's gone. :(

It is always upsetting when someone dies. But, I find it strange that her death is getting significant attention. She was moderately famous 20 years ago. In fact, I never even knew her name until yesterday - and I owned two Cranberries albums back in the day.

They were quite up there in popularity. The Cranberries had three #1 multi-platinum (and Diamond certified) albums in the 90s. Zombie was one of the biggest songs of the 1990s; a smash hit single off of a smash hit album (No Need to Argue). Their earlier work with Linger and Dreams became two of the most significant sleeper hits of the decade and were omnipresent on the radio just about worldwide.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

No Need to Argue and To The Faithful Departed were two of my most listened to albums during my teens years. Such a shame, losing her so young. Feel especially bad for her children.

Signature goes here!

Never understood why that zombie song had so many views.

Yeah same. I never heard of it ever, never brought up in conversation, not on the radio, until I saw it on Youtube last year. Out of all the 90s hits on youtube thats the one ive seen with the most views ... and yet it just sounds meh to me. 


Its very sad to see a person die at 46 though. Especially a talented individual.

Really?? It's like one of the most popular rock songs of all time.

(Btw, November Rain actually has a lot more views, over 900m.)

I'm sad, she was a great artist.

She left us with a lot of wonderful music which I still listen to every time to time - on my phone or in my head - like a zombie.
