The Cranberries rose to international fame with their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, which became a commercial success and was certified Platinum in Australia, 2× platinum in Britain and 5× platinum in the US. Their next studio album No Need to Argue gave the band the hit single "Zombie" and was their best-selling studio album. The band has achieved one number-one album on the UK Albums Chart (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?), and two number one singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart ("Zombie") and ("Salvation"). The album Roses was released on 27 February 2012. Their most recent album, Something Else, covering earlier songs together with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, was released on 28 April 2017.

The group covered "(They Long to Be) Close to You" on the 1994 tribute album, If I Were a Carpenter.

Notes

  • A ^ Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? is due to be remastered and re-released with exclusive bonus tracks later in 2018.[22]
  • B ^ Chart position is derived from a source which only began collecting data in January 2000. Bury the Hatchet may have charted higher when it was originally released in Ireland in May 1999. The then-recent issue of Billboard neglected to include an Irish Albums Chart.[23]
