- Page 1

There's some sad news coming out of the music world today. Dolores O'Riordan, best known as the lead singer for the rock band The Cranberries, has died at the age of 46.

The Irish singer and her bandmates garnered international success in the 90s with their chart-topping hits, including "Zombie," "Linger," and "Ode to My Family."

The Cranberries were considerably less popular towards the end of the decade, and in 2003, they disbanded. Six years later, the band announced that they were reuniting, and had an album as well as a tour in the works. They have since released two albums, including "Something Else," which made its debut in April 2017.

The band embarked on an international tour shortly after, but unfortunately, once the European leg ended, they were forced to cancel the remaining dates citing O'Riordan's health issues as a reason.

The singer's health continued to decline since, but she recently took to Facebook to let fans know that she is "feeling good" and that she was already back to performing gigs.

"Hi All, Dolores here. Feeling good!," she wrote on December 20th. "I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in New York with the house band. Really enjoyed it! Happy Christmas to all our fans!! Xo"

Sadly, less than a month later, a rep for O'Riordan announced her sudden death.

We all remember watching Brendan Fraser in the movies he made when we were kids. It all started with Encino Man, but our obsession with his movies would only grow and grow over the next few years.

The Internet Has Been Blessed With The Trippiest Wendy's Training Videos From The 80s, And They're Gold

Oftentimes when you start a new job you have to go through a training period. This usually entails reading manuals, shadowing a colleague, or watching training videos that will help you get a good grasp of your role so you can perform your best. However, as we've all come to learn at some point in our lives, workplace training videos can be really boring.
