    So sad. I grew up listening to their music and it shaped what I listened to today. Too young.

    Wrecked 'em? Damn near killed 'em!

    I have vivid memories of sunny, summer days between the ages of 4 and 6 hearing her voice on the radio while driving with my family to the beach.

    I will miss her and am sad I did not see them on their reunion tour, having been too young to appreciate her work when they were at their biggest.

    Man, she had such a unique and beautiful voice. "Linger" will always be a really special song to me. Far too young, RIP

    One of the most unique bands ever. Every hit sounded so much different than the other. What a voice and talent, a true human instrument

    Terrrible news. For a few years The Cranberries were my favorite band with so many great songs and unbelievable voice of Dolores. It is devastated that she died so young. Feel terribly sorry for her family (especially kids), friends, bandmates and fans all around the world

    I’m devestated by this. The Cranberries were the first band I ever truly loved, the band that sparked my passion for music, and Dolores was such a transcendent talent and a great role model for a young girl growing up. I’d really enjoyed her recent solo work and was looking forward to more music. How terrible for her family and friends. 46 is too young.

    They had some great songs in the 90s. Ode To My Family is my personal fav. RIP :(

    When I read this, oddly the first thing that came to my mind was the cameo she had in Community

    RIP, incredible voice

    Have to echo the sentiment that this was a really unique band, and her vocals were the biggest reason for that. RIP.
