What’s that saying again? “So nice they did it twice” – I think that is the line or something else very close to it. Whatever the exact verbiage might be, the thought I am getting at is the fact that the brand new band Bad Wolves have achieved a level of bombastic success with their cover of The Cranberries song “Zombie” that was released as a single in memory of that bands singer Dolores O’Riordan. At the point of this writing the world at large still does NOT know the cause of the singers passing which is a shame. Now the Bad Wolves version of the song was nothing less than jarring and powerful and after I listened a few times was added to the content of our website on a summary you can examine HERE.

The sudden and quite surprising dead of singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries hit a world of music fans hard since she was not only loved but also only 46 years of age. Her death followed that of the legendary “Fast” Eddie Clarke of the Original Motorhead and left music fans with the mindset of here we go again with the regular passing on of musical greats. Earlier today, I was tooling around in Spotify and saw that the band Bad Wolves had recorded The Cranberries seminal hit “Zombie” and since I had wanted to check them out I felt that this would be the perfect launching point for me. Let’s give their version of the classic tune a listen I said and from the moment it started I was down with it.
