Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 59: The Cranberries “Zombie”

cranberrieszombiescreencap

It’s Friday and it’s time to get twisted! This week’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week is none other than the smash hit “Zombie” from The Cranberries. This song appeared on their 1994 album No Need To Argue and is about struggle and strife in Ireland, particularly the death of two children from an IRA bombing. The video was directed by Samuel Bayer (who also directed Metallica‘s “Until It Sleeps”, which bears undeniable visual similarities) and mixes band performance, gritty military footage, and Biblical imagery similar to Bosch’s “The Garden Of Earthly Delights”. Check it out below!

As always, feel free to leave a comment with a suggestion for next week’s video!
