Back when things like the emotive quality of a voice and a startlingly original tune mattered… bands like The Cranberries ruled the airwaves. Music videos even took the liberty of being more provocative, urging the MTV generation to acknowledge a truer, more real reality. Somehow we managed to avoid such pearls of wisdom and become the me generation.
The subject matter of the song is still as relevant as it was… maybe even more now. Why we cant seem to wrap our national head around the fact that we may come from different families and races but are still one, is baffling. There are some current bands out there forging the road ahead after the deep slumber of the early 2000′s, namely LA’s The Morning Birds who’s songstress has a similar bravado.
