Aww man, I still remember in 8th grade when I borrowed my player to my friends for a bus trip and they were all like "wtf is this girly shit on playlist 3 lol" and I denied the Cranberries like st. Peter denied Jesus and lied about sharing the player with my sister as an explanation.

[–]GermanyHematophagian 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I always liked her...and she's 3 years older then me, so I really liked her...

[–]GermanyHematophagian 4 points5 points  (0 children)

On a side note: Sharleen Spiteri was my favourite back then...she did not age too well. Jennifer Connely though!

[–]TaiwanoGsBumder 9 points10 points  (2 children)

hahaha I had almost the same experience one time :D btw, I know you didn't ask for English advice but here it is anyway: it should be "lent to" and "borrowed from" and they're not interchangeable :D

[–]PolandArdogon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Since we are writing about memories, I still remember how I got my grade reduced because of this mistake.

Btw. Since we are writing about memories = Since we are with memories ?

[–]TaiwanoGsBumder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Since we are writing about memories" is correct, but "While we're on the topic of memories" sounds a bit more natural. "Since we are with memories" is incorrect.

I studied French and German in school and was absolutely awful at both of them lol. Learning languages is hard. I'm astounded by how well many non-native speakers can speak English.

Now this is very unexpected. Their music is iconic for the 90's. RIP.

[–]Nederlands-Oost-Indië/IndonesiëVulphere 7 points8 points  (1 child)

RIP, I will play the entire The Cranberries discography to honour her.

One of my favourite female singer.

[–]NorwayW00ster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've been playing Cranberries all night too, many memories.

RIP Dolores

[–]TurkeyKaworu123 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Omg i loved her strong voice always.It doesn't say anything about her death reason.I hope it's not suicide.

[–]Polandkonradkar 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Polish article mention she gave an interview few days ago saying she doesn't feel good (physically, not mentally)

[–]TurkeyKaworu123 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don't wanna think the possibility that she might be using drugs but she is celebrity in the end.

[–]Leinstermalevolentheadturn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She was known to suffer from bipolar

[–]🌹 Transylvanian Girl 🌹verylateish 23 points24 points  (0 children)



EDIT: I love Cranberries despite me being born after their time. I don't even want to read the article.

[–]Europenilsph 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There's no need to argue anymore. RIP.

[–]EuropeJoseMikey 15 points16 points  (12 children)

Sad. That is no age to die. Did she have some ongoing health conditions, like cancer to die at such an early age?

[–]He does it for freevernazza[S] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not unless they kept it secret. They did have to cancel most of their tour dates last year, but cited her nagging back problems as a reason.

[–]Bolognastandy85 12 points13 points  (0 children)

she had bi polar disorder IIRC and severe depression. She cancelled her last tour for some back pain problems, so painkillers might also be in the equation

[–]scaradin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I can’t find anything other than it was sudden and unexpected. She had to pull out of some shows due to her back, but that could be cover for something else.

How unexpected.

[–]Russiazastroogi 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Yeah, the age to die is 27.

[–]AgentAdja 4 points5 points  (5 children)

This comment is only controversial to morons who don't know about the 27 club.

[–]KateTrask 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I guess those morons didn't have the balls to join the club and are now bitter about it.

[–]Czech RepublicMoravianPrince 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well Not too late for some to join the Jesus club at 33.

[–]IrelandSpoonshape 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or the Methuselah club at 969. come on, the guy must be a bit lonely by now.

[–]DenmarkPM-ME-GOOD-DOGGOS 0 points1 point  (1 child)


Okay, so because you're don't follow when celebrities kill themselves, you're a straight up 'moron', now that is a moronic statement.

[–]AgentAdja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Most of them were murders or accidents. And the list is rather large. You don't even have to love pop culture to know about the 27 club. It's just interesting how quickly some people will downvote something without thinking through what is meant by it. That is the moronic behavior.

[–]Kara-KalLoveShip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

James Dean, Anton Yelchin, Amy Winehouse etc....

[–]MunsterHauldOnASecond 17 points18 points  (25 children)

I had no idea that she or the band were well known outside Ireland and Britain.

[–]shaun252 56 points57 points  (6 children)

Zombie has 600million+ views on youtube?

[–]MunsterHauldOnASecond 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'd be lying if I said I was aware of that.

[–]EstoniaDicios 8 points9 points  (0 children)


Cranberries was a very iconic sound and song.

[–]Irelanddanirijeka 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They indeed are, and how.

[–]Mexicoapolitogaga 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Heard them all the time growing up in Mexico, yeah she will be missed.

[–]SwedenJamieMcDonald 6 points7 points  (10 children)

I'd put them into the Manic Street Preacher (Welsh, yes I know) category. Globally well known by an entire generation. And somewhat political among a flood of pop drivel.

[–]Lithurainiaeisenkatze 18 points19 points  (9 children)

No one knows Manic Street Preachers like they do Cranberries here. I couldn't name even one of their songs.

[–]Swedenkrubkreta 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Yeah it's not even a competition, most people know atleast the zooooombie eh eh eh song, never heard of Manic Street Preachers

[–]Croatiahere1am 2 points3 points  (2 children)

never heard of Manic Street Preachers

She's from sweden, you must have heard this at least: Not Enough.

[–]Swedenkrubkreta 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Oh it's the cardigans girl yeah?

I like them, never heard this song though, it was pretty good

[–]CroatiaMorningPlasma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh it's the cardigans girl yeah?

Nina the Godess Persson. Sure she is. Now I have this song in the loop. Look what you guys made me do, what you made me do, ...

[–]SwedenJamieMcDonald -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

Then I guess I can officially tell your generation to fuck the fuck off.

[–]SwedenJamieMcDonald -4 points-3 points  (1 child)


Well... you weren't told about a lot of things to be fair.

[–]CroatiaMorningPlasma 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't be a trump. :)

[–]Romaniapaganel 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The '90s Brit Pop were a big thing all over Europe, I guess mostly because of MTV (yeah, I do include Irish singers under "Brit pop", even though I guess that's not technically true).

[–]United KingdomBlussy96 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And Euro pop was more popular here too. I miss some of those amazing, yet cancerous tunes.

[–]IrelandEl-Daddy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't include the Cranberries under Britpop just by their sound alone, rather than just geography.

[–]Transylvaniamr_snuggels 5 points6 points  (0 children)

yey we made it 15 days without a celebrity death...

[–]mrspidey80 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Stop it, 2018! Don't even think about trying to be like 2016! Don't you fucking dare!

[–]DenmarkPM-ME-GOOD-DOGGOS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh god, can we not do this? OMG 2017 WAS SOO BAD! Like, literally, 2018, can't be any worse omg!

[–]Istria/StyriasuberEE 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What, why? Wow. RIP.

[–]Juejuejue (Living in Spain)frozennoises 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I should not had read newspapers today...

[–]CroatialibarCRO 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So sorry, not everybody was a fan of her voice but she was great and unique artist. Some songs from the band are forever glued on my favorites list since they belong to my younger time.

[–]megalopoutsa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am not a big Cranberries fan only know them from their hits but man this makes me sad. She was such a talented singer, 46 is way too young.

[–]Morocco (unfortunately)Lyress 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I used to listen to her songs as a kid with my sister explaining to me the lyrics. Very sad she's gone.

[–]United States of AmericaGreybol3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm in shock... That is no age to die. RIP :*(

[–]Irelandbuckfasthero 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One of the greatest musical talents to come out of Ireland

[–]Romanian-Americanatred 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can't believe she's gone. Rest in peace.

My favorite song

[–]GBlightgrip 2 points3 points  (0 children)

RIP. I didn't realise until this morning that the song Zombie was written as a tribute to two boys, aged 12 and 3, who were killed by the IRA bombing at Warrington in 93. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-42701421

[–]South Holland (Netherlands)CriticalSpirit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Such sad news, she had a unique voice.

[–]mpenxa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a wonderful woman. We owe her so much thanks. Rest peacefully.

[–]Batmanlandaqua_maris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

RIP Dolores :(

"Dreams" is the song that got me into music. She'll be missed.

[–]Irish in Île-de-FranceDassinJoe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I met her back when they were starting out in the early 90s and I was very impressed with her professionalism. She took gigging very seriously and I wasn't surprised the band became successful. Requiescat in pace.

[–]Polihs grasshooper citizenSlyScorpion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooof. I wasn't a fan of The Cranberries when they showed up back in the day but she was an amazing singer. Rest in peace.

[–]CzechmadeLee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your voice will live forever Dolores, rest in peace.

[–]DrManhattQ 0 points1 point  (0 children)
