An example of committed song

ZOMBIE – CRANBERRIES

The Cranberries are an Irish rock band with the vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, the guitarist Noel Hogan, the bassist Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawle who is the drummer. This group was formed in 1990.

When the goup hears of the two children's death - Jonathan Ball and Tim Parry - during a bomb attack committed by the IRA on March the 20th, 1993, in Warrington. Dolores O'Riordan decided to write and sing Zombie because she is totally touched and angry about this because of this event. They protest against the men's madness. This song is related the conflict between England and Ireland. It shows the horror of war and explains that memories of events are implanted in their head. They denounced the violence and the fact that the murder doesn't know what he does.

After the IRA's ceasefire, in 1994, Zombie is joined on the album called No Need To Arque which has a success.
