Teen Band Goes Viral After Slaying Cranberries’ “Zombie” At A Neighborhood Party

Cranberries Zombie

An Omaha-based teenaged rock band is going viral after they absolutely slayed a cover of Cranberries’ Zombie at a neighborhood party.

The group of musicians, called The Basement, might have had their big break after the Instagram account Newvisionomaha shared a video of them playing the 1994 hit. The page has shared several clips of the cover, and combined, they’ve accumulated over 2 million views. The page owner, Handy Anderson, joked that the band “broke” his Instagram.

In the posts, the kids were rocking out at a party in their neighborhood, which is also Handy’s neighborhood. A crowd of people sat in lawn chairs and watched the teens as they played on a stage they created in the driveway.
