“Ode To My Family”

Among their most popular hits with one of the most recognizable intros ever, this song is from the Irish band’s 1994 album No Need To Argue.

It was indeed The Cranberries’ first big hit, following “Dreams” in 1993 and was originally written by the band’s former vocalist Niall Quinn. Dolores, however, changed the lyrics after she joined the band.

Arguably the most iconic and powerful The Cranberries song, this was inspired by the bombings in Northern Ireland in 1993 that resulted in the death of a three-year old and a 12-year-old boy. This would probably be the first song that comes “in your head” when you hear the band’s name.
