Zombie" is a protest song by Irish rock band The Cranberries, written about the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of two young victims, Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry. It was released in September 1994 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue (1994). It preceded the release of No Need to Argue by two weeks. The song was written by the band's lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, France, Denmark and Germany.
The Cranberries wrote "Zombie" during their 1993 tour in England. Lead vocalist Dolores O'Riordan recalled: On the road, writing things became more alive. I think that's why "Zombie" emerged. The first album was more tame and more reserved, and then we started to rock out a bit more. So, we started to write more rock and roll songs. The specific reference to 1916 ("It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen") is the Easter Rising, an armed rebellion in Ireland during Easter Week, April 1916
Produced by Stephen Street. Album No Need to Argue. Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken? But you see, it's not me It's not my family In your head, in your head, they are fightin' With their tanks, and their bombs And their bombs, and their guns In your head, in your head, they are cryin'

After The Cranberries' debut album, people thought they had the band sussed out. The Limerick band were part of the Celtic rock tradition, their shimmering, sorrowful ballads brought to life by Dolores O'Riordan's bell-clear vocals. Zombie shattered that illusion. A seething condemnation of the IRA, it was backed by pummelling, distorted guitars while O'Riordan's lilt was contorted into a primal howl: "What's in your head Zombie? Zomb-ie-ey, ay-ey, ay-ey, aooowwwww . The song also remained a highlight of The Cranberries' concerts, regularly acting as the closing number of the set. The band recorded an acoustic, stripped-down version for last year's Something Else album.
