Hailing from rural Ireland, The Cranberries is an alternative rock band that rose to fame in the 1990s with its infectious melodies. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, the band earned immediate widespread attention in the US with its 1993 debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, and went on to build an international fan with its follow-up record, No Need To Argue. The 1994 album offered a harder sound than The Cranberries' debut, but proved to be even more commercially successful, reaching audiences from across Europe. Though the band decided to call it quits in 2003 after its popularity waned into the late 1990s, The Cranberries reunited in 2009 and continued to release new albums like its 2012 effort, Roses. Sadly, O'Riordan passed away in London in early 2018.
