The Cranberries were one of the best rock bands in the '90s led by its singer Dolores O'Riordan.

Sad news was heard from fans around the world earlier today as we all found out that Dolores O'Riordan sadly passed away.

The sad news was reported on the official 'The Cranberries' Facebook page. You can read the full statement posted down below.

Irish and international singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries, was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time.

Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.

Sadly, no cause of death has been revealed at this time. It was a sudden death so more details should be revealed later this week.

Growing up in the '90s, The Cranberries was one of the first rock bands I ever heard that had a female lead singer.

The hit 'Zombie' is by far the band's most famous single and the song still gets regular radio play even today.

I also remember I used to sing 'Zombie' a lot in the PlayStation 2 video game SingStar. The song was easy for to sing thanks to me listening to it so many times.

However, my favorite Cranberries songs of all time is 'Dreams'. The song was used in the first Mission Impossible movie starring Tom Cruise.

We are at EmptyLighthouse Magazine are saddened by the news of Dolores O'Riordan's death. Hopefully her songs can still live on forever even years after her passing.

Posted below are the two songs I loved the most from The Cranberries. First is the hit 'Zombie' while the other video is of the song 'Dreams'.
