* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Their first EP "Uncertain" has three tracks which haven't been reissued since, however are widely available online. The fourth track, "Them" was made available as a B-Side elsewhere (and later on their first album's 2002 reissue), though the intro was edited down compared to the Uncertain version.
** "Chrome Paint", "A Fast One" and "Take My Soul Away" only exist on demo tapes, as do the demo versions of various album tracks. The band's first demo tape "Anything" with singer Niall Quinn (before Dolores joined the band) also only exists in this form. Fortunately, the band member Noel Hogan sent the owner of a fansite CD-Rs of all the demo tracks he had available, which he allowed to be leaked online.

** "Sunday" starts off as a new age style song with vocal and strings, followed by a slight moment of silence, after which drums kick in and it becomes a melodic indie song.

* RecycledSoundtrack: The Niall Quinn era demo track "How's It Going To Bleed?" (from before Dolores time in the band) had some of its melody and atmosphere reused in "Fee Fi Fo" on Bury The Hatchet, 10 years later.

Their first album, ''Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?'' became a hit both in Britain and America and spawned the hit singles "Dreams" and "Linger". They followed that with ''No Need To Argue'', which featured a somewhat heavier sound, especially in the single "Zombie", which became the biggest hit the group ever had. Their third album, ''To the Faithful Departed'', filled with ultra-serious songs about subjects such as death, the murder of JohnLennon, and the war in Bosnia, sold well but not as well as ''No Need to Argue'', and became a commercial setback for the band. ''Bury the Hatchet'' and ''Wake Up and Smell the Coffee'' received mixed reviews and marginal sales. The band then broke up, embarking on an 11-year hiatus (in which both O'Riordan and Noel Hogan pursued solo projects) before reuniting and putting out new album ''Roses'' in 2012.

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.

* ProtestSong: Many. Arguably, too many.
* PunBasedTitle / IncrediblyLamePun: "The Cranberry Saw Us" might be the worst band name in history.
