Boomtown Rats

The Boomtown Rats (1975-1984) were a punk rock/new wave group headed by Bob Geldof who was later known for organizing charity rock concerts such as Band Aid (intended to help famine victims in Ethiopia), Live Aid, and Hands Across America (intended to help homeless people in America).

Their greatest hit was I Don't Like Mondays, which commemorated the 1979 school shooting by 16-year old Brenda Ann Spencer who claimed she did it because she "didn't like Mondays".
