Rounding out the week of Women Who Rock..
"Zombie" is a protest song by the Irish rock band The Cranberries. It was released in September 1994 as the lead single from the album No Need to Argue. The song was written by Dolores O'Riordan, the singer of the band, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, and Germany.
This song was written during the Cranberries' English Tour in 1993, in memory of two boys, Jonathan Ball and Tim Parry, who were killed in an IRA bombing in Warrington.
