CSPC: Cranberries Popularity Analysis

...to listen

Even during the most hyped years of the rock band Cranberries their singer Dolores O’Riordan wasn’t known for excesses. Her death on January 15, 2018 at only 46 came as a real shocker.

They band rose to fame in English-speaking countries thanks to the single Linger in early 1994. One year later the cult hit Zombie made them one of the biggest bands in the world. Their fame was short-lived in several markets, but their tunes remain sweet memories for millions of people.

As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge their results. This concept will not only bring you sales information for all Cranberries‘ albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming, but it will also determine their true popularity. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, the next page explains it with a short video. I fully recommend watching the video before getting into the sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free to skip the video and get into the figures.

Roses went platinum in france. Sold 100,000 thousand copies in france alone. So i dont think it only sold 160k worlwide.

Any chance you can publish an update on Cranberries analysis?? I believe things have change quite a lot since Dolores passing

Can you make a heatmap, please? BTW, I’m pretty sure the band deserves more.

He has seven consecutive No. 1 US albums, and 58 Billboard Top 40 singles, 27 Top 10, four No. 2 and nine No. 1. For 31 consecutive years (1970–2000) he had at least one song in the Billboard Hot 100.

Zombie song is big! 🙂

I heard the Cranberries were massively boycotted by british radios when their third record came out in order to promote british rock bands instead. That would explain why their sales in the UK are not that big.

Thank you very much! How much were they popular in Ireland ? I heard they sold huge amounts of records back in the day. How do they rank among Ireland’s most popular acts and singers ?

I belive the U2 and Enya must be more popular in Ireland than Cranberries. Then, I’m not sure about Van Morrison, Sinéad O’Connor, Thin Lizzy.. But of course that’s just my guess and I don’t know for sure.

Bands like Westlife, Boyzone and The Corrs are all likely to have big Irish stats too

Yeah, but they don’t count, right?!

I have heard that the Irish and British are very big huge fans of rock songs. I guess they must have done very well there too.

Hello. You have different numbers for the “Roses” album in the breakdown and summary pages (140k and 160k). Just thought I should point that out.
