At a time when grunge had been the top music genere, The Cranberries did completely the opposite, by creating a artistic style of pop/rock music with a strong and unique traditional irish influence! Some of the best musicianship and lyric writing! Probebly one of the greatest bands of the 1990's!!

Yuck. Represented everything that was wrong with 90's music.

Oh, Holy Love yes the Cranberries. I'm all happy when a band has a single song that represents a generation, but Linger, Zombie, Dreams, and Ode to My Family, all.

This band was everywhere, and not on the radio and MTV. I mean, every person I knew (and still do) has the obligatory Cranberries CD. And Linger has to be one of the most perfect songs ever.

Love the album 'To the Faithful Departed'. Love the lead singer's voice.

They need another killer album or two to make it in, IMO.

Definitelly they should be! They were so different to the bands in their time, and they are still rocking our world :D

The Cranberries were and still are amazing. Just because they are different than other bands who people think are worth of being inducted, doesn't mean they shouldn't be. The Cranberries are amazing, I love them, and they WILL be inducted in 2016.

Have to agree with Paul.The Cranberries need 1 or 2 more killer CD's to warrant induction. There's something about the Cranberries music that gets in your blood & under your skin.Early U2 & Counting Crows as well.

I like that yellow album.To The Faithfully Departed.That really rocked! Hollywood,FREE TO DECIDE particularly great. I think those 1st 3 CD's (rewe) were outstanding. Still need some work to do.Love D's singing. KING

The Cranberries, 1994

Ode To My Family - My father he liked me. Does anyone care?

Is this about child abuse?
