* DorkAge: ''To The Faithful Departed'' is this for a lot of fans, though said album does have its fans, especially the well-regarded songs such as the punk-influenced "Salvation" and the ballad "When You're Gone".
* GeniusBonus: The only lyrical hint about Zombie's meaning comes from the line "the same old thing from 1916," a [[UsefulNotes/TheIrishRevolution profoundly important year]] in Irish history. Many critics have noted Zombie is unusual because pop songs rarely reference events from before the artists' lifetimes.

** Perhaps even worse is the title track from ''No Need To Argue,'' with only an organ and vocals for instrumentation. It's like listening to a funeral.

** "Ode to My Family", especially if you've been in a situation that makes you away from your own parents.

* {{Anvilicious}} / FanonDiscontinuity: ''To the Faithful Departed'' was largely disowned by fans for this very reason, with the songs "Salvation" and "I Just Shot John Lennon" being particularly singled out as the band's weakest. Not helped by the fact that Dolores O'Riordan had a CreatorBreakdown during recording.

** Their cover of "Go Your Own Way" by Music/FleetwoodMac is really something to hear.

** Their cover of "Go Your Own Way" by Music/FleetwoodMac is really something to hear. Dolores O'Riordan's vocals are a perfect fit.
** "Linger" is incredibly pretty and also [[TearJerker incredibly sad.]]
** {{Anvilicious}} rarely sounds as invigorating and loud as "Zombie."



* ChorusOnlySong: "Linger."

** Faye Wong's cover of "Dreams", thanks in part to ''Film/ChungkingExpress'' and being the soundtrack to [[MemeticMutation a video of a car on fire]].

* TearJerker: "Linger" is just heartbreaking, one of the alt-rock era's saddest songs.
