"Zombie" by The Cranberries is a song originally in the key of E minor. Released in 1994 as the lead single from their second studio album, "No Need to Argue," the song was composed by the band's lead vocalist, Dolores O'Riordan. The powerful alternative rock track holds significant history as it was written in response to the IRA bombing in Warrington, England. The song features an iconic and memorable melody, mainly driven by O'Riordan's distinct vocal delivery accompanied by a blend of electric guitars and intense drum beats. "Zombie" became one of The Cranberries' most successful songs, topping charts in several countries and leaving a lasting impact within the music industry.
