Band donates $250,000 to family of late Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan
" Heavy metal band Bad Wolves originally hoped to record a cover of the Cranberries' hit "Zombie" with frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan, but when the singer died unexpectedly, they decided to make the song a tribute to her instead.

After the singer's death in January at the age of 46, Bad Wolves said that they planned to donate the proceeds from their cover of "Zombie" to her children. On Tuesday night, they made good on that promise.

The band presented O'Riordan's son Taylor, step-son, Donny Jr., and ex-husband, Don Burton, with a check for $250,000 during their show in New York City. "

Why would they donate more money to kids of a rich singer?

Does it make sense?

Are they hoping to make them richer by 5%?

Meanwhile they could help the lives of some 100 fucked up poverty ass kids for that money.

Donno if her kids are rich or not and really don't care. They decided to give the proceeds from the cover to her children as a gesture.

What the her kids decide to do with that money is entirely up to them. It's none of my business and none of yours.

According to a random celebirty net worth website, she was worth 25 million when she died.

So maybe it's just a gesture of thanks? The cover was badass anyways, but her death undoubtedly made it get even more airplay.

Nobody had ever heard of the band before this, it put them on the map. I think they're pretty good.

I was blown away by the cover. Im looking forward to more from them.

I think giving the money to the kids is an awesome gesture of thanks to an artist they wanted to work with. Let them decide what they want to do with it.

It's a good cover, and absolutely does justice to the original.

Nice gesture from the band too.

In most cases the fucked up poverty ass kids will blow the money in seconds and fuck up their own lives even more.

Sure, as opposed to someone who just got 1% on top of what they inherited.

I don't need their donations as much as the woman's kids didn't.

But thanks for your concern.

Then why announce the act in the first place? If this reality is supposed to be generating any sort of consistent narrative its broken.
