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'.
