Boomtown Rats

The Boomtown Rats (1978-1984) were a 1980s punk rock 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 a school shooting perpetrated by a 14-year old who claimed she did it because she 'didn't like Mondays'.
