The world has sadly lost another rock legend at a very young age, and all across the planet people are mourning their death.

Many people may not know the name Dolores O’Riordan, but if you’re 30 years old or older, you’re familiar with the Irish rock group The Cranberries. The rock band put out countless hits throughout their career and sold over 40 million records worldwide, along with producing four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?; No Need to Argue, To the Faithful Departed and Bury the Hatchet – not an easy task by any means.

Some of their biggest hits included “Linger,” “Dreams,” “Zombie,” “Ode to my Family,” “Ridiculous Thoughts,” “Salvation,” “Free to Decide, and “Promises.” The Cranberries’ career started in 1989 and lasted all of the way until 2017, when their latest tour had to be canceled for the saddest of reasons; O’Riordan suddenly passed away last night in London at the age of just 46.
