In an interview with Dutch website Nu.nl, Dolores and Noel talked about the success of “Zombie” in the mid-90’s.
“I always kinda like harder rock bands, but then perhaps I took the band too much in that direction” told Dolores O’ Riordan.
“But at that time, Zombie was the right thing. If [‘Zombie’] was soft, it wouldn’t have that impact”
“I don’t think any of us thought it would be as big at it was” explained Hogan.
