Oh how I miss them.:(

But apparantly Dolores O'Riordan has a solo album comming out soon.:up:

So who else shares in my love with The Cranberries?:daredevil
 
Meh, they did one good song (Dreams) only to have Faye Wong produce a vastly superior version which appears on the film ChungKing Express.

IMO (which is actually fact), you are insane.:down
 
I loved The Cranberries ever since they came out with their first album, which was odd because back then I was really into death metal

last saturday, we were playing and some idiot started yelling that we should play a cranberries song, maybe due to the fact that we are three guys and a girl on the band, we told him to **** off and everybody laughed at the dude

then we played the intro to zombie and Leslie said "**** you"
 
Actually, if you like that Irish stuff, you should check out Juliette Turner. She's like the Corrs, only, y'know, good.

cool,
I always thought a cover of dreams would be cool with a hard rock twist. I think it would be fairly easy to pull of too. The whole song is basically an E and G chords, so just add some embelishments and there you go.:up:

You're in a band, huh?
i didn't know that. That's pretty cool:up:
 
I find it to be one of those rare covers that are better than the original. The only other one that springs to mind is Superstar by Sonic Youth.

Which you can find here...
 
I remember The Cranberries. They did that song "Linger", right? Cool song. Never really a big fan, though.

I also disagree with the original poster's statement that they are the best band ever to be fronted by a female. Heart will forever hold that title.
 
yeah i like the cranberries. haven't got any of their albums, but i remember zombie linger promises.
 
Yes! Congradulations to the first band that really recorded music that you couldn't understand the lyrics to...many many years later we're still singing,

"Eee-yo-head, e-yo-hea-eh-yah-ed, by may, by men, by-i may-a, may-a, may-a, may-a, oh-o, oh-o, oh-o, oh-o..."

Seriously, I know I enjoyed them

two bands, actually, El Estado, which is an industrial metal band where I sing and play guitar and Varzovia which is more of an indie garage pop band where I just play guitar and do backing vox
