It was the greatest honor to know she liked our version and wanted to sing on it” says Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext We’re deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dolores and by the fact that she’s leaving behind three children so we are donating the proceeds from the song to her kids”.

 

It’s such a powerful song and the themes are still so relevant, we wanted to release it in her memory” he continues “The original lyrics include the line ‘It’s the same old theme Since nineteen-sixteen. In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting’. It’s a reference to the IRA bombings during the Irish Rebellion. We changed that lyric to say ‘2018’ and she was really excited about that because the nations may have changed but we’re still fighting the same battles today. Humanity is still fighting to assert itself despite all the conflicts
 
Vext further discusses the decision to release The Cranberries’ genre-defining in an exclusive interview with ROLLING STONE.
