Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Cranberries are once again included on a few Paddy's Day lists and playlists.

10 songs to celebrate Patty’s Day

9. The Cranberries – “Zombie”
Did someone say party? If it’s the 90’s, The Cranberries are there. However the year doesn’t matter in the slightest when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day. This band is Irish to the core! Heck, they’re even from a city called Limerick. If that (and “Zombie”) doesn’t scream Irish, nothing does. “Zombie” is such a good song!.
How can we forget the brooding sounds of this band that was at their peak in the '90s? Some may shy away from the tone of lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's voice, but you cannot deny its uniqueness. If they've been absent from your playlist for years, throw them back in the mix and listen with a strong cocktail — should help get those memories flowing.

4. The Cranberries

A hallmark of '90s alternative/pop rock, The Cranberries are one of the rare Irish bands to make an auspicious run on US music charts with singles like "Zombie," "Linger," and "Ode to My Family." With singer Dolores O'Riordan's unique vocals, the Hogan brothers' grungy guitar and bass and Fergal Lawlor's drums The Cranberries are one of the most successful rock acts of the '90s and have sold over 40 million records worldwide. The band has achieved four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart and eight top 20 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
