Published Jan 16, 2019Yesterday (January 15) marked the one year anniversary of the death of Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan, and Vic Mensa marked the occasion with a cover of the Irish band's classic song "Zombie."
The Chicago rapper released the song under his 93PUNX moniker, which he describes as "a band I created to express things outside of rap."
As for his decision to cover the track, Mensa explained in a press release, "We connected to 'Zombie' because we were born from violence."
The Cranberries' original version was inspired by the 1993 Warrington bomb attacks by the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
