The Cranberries’ Zombie hits 1 billion views on Youtube after months of campaigning by fans and the band.

It is only the sixth video to do so from the 20th century and the first music video from an Irish band.

Band member, Fergal Lawler, took to their social media to say that they are ‘so delighted with the news that Zombie has reached 1 Billion views on YouTube’.

‘We are sure Dolores has a big, proud smile on her face too.’

‘Thank you so much to all our fans around the world for supporting us over so many years’

The other five videos that the band from Limerick joined are Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Guns N’ Roses’ November Rain and Sweet Child O’ Mine, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, and A-ha’s Take On Me.

If you aren’t one of the 1 Billion or just want to check out the masterpiece again, take a look:
