Song information

“Zombie” is a song by the Irish band The Cranberries induced by the Irish paramilitary organization, IRA, bombing in Manchester in 1993, which killed three-years-old Jonathan Ball and 12-years-old Tim Parry. The main aim of the organization was for the removal of British troops from Northern Ireland. Vocalist Dolores O'Riordan explains that the song directly refers to the Irish struggle for independence, which seems to last forever. The song calls for a cessation of hostilities between England and Ireland. The case could be talked about... but the fact is that in August 1994, shortly after the release of the song by the Cranberries, IRA announced a ceasefire. For 25 years no one was able to resolve the conflict and just one song seems to have changed everything. Perhaps because of the interesting subject matter, perhaps because of the musical qualities, the song "Zombie" became one of the most recognizable songs of the band. Needless to mention here all the awards, honors and quotations on the charts. Just let us hear the masterpiece.
