Watch Dolores O'Riordan's amazing version of 'Zombie' on MTV's Unplugged

Music 16/01/2018

The rock music world is reeling, following the unexplained death of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan. 

For many, the singer was a stalwart of 90s rock music. 'Dreams,' 'Linger,' Zombie' and 'Salvation' all became massive hits in the US during that decade, putting the Irish rock band on the map. 

Rolling Stone reports their biggest album was 1994's No Need to Argue, which they promoted with an MTV Unplugged special in 1995. 

After O'Riordan's death, many are turning to this acoustic rendition of 'Zombie' from the MTV Unplugged sessions, where the band was joined by a string section. Rolling Stone reports the song was inspired by two young children that were killed by an IRA bombing.
