'''The Cranberries''' are an Irish pop/rock band. They formed in Limerick in 1989. The original lineup consisted of lead singer Niall Quinn, lead guitarist Noel Hogan, his brother Mike Hogan on bass guitar, and Fergal Lawler on drums. The band was originally called "[[IncrediblyLamePun The Cranberry Saw Us]]". After less than a year Quinn left the band and the remaining members put out an advertisement for a new singer. Dolores O'Riordan responded to the ad by writing lyrics to some band demos. The song she came up with was "Linger". The band hired her.

* LyricalShoehorn: O'Riordan, who writes all the band's lyrics, is prone to this. One notable example is the chorus to "Zombie" with its double use of "bombs": "With their tanks/and their bombs/and their bombs/and their guns"

* SongStyleShift: "Daffodil Lament" turns from a mournful dirge about a woman trapped in a bad relationship to a joyful, optimistic tune with a ringing guitar line after she leaves him. Then there's another weird, mournful dirge (this one wordless) at the end, possibly indicating future uncertainty.
