How the Boomtown Rats came up with their hit song

How the Boomtown Rats came up with their hit song.

It was on this day (29th Jan) in 1979 that Brenda Spencer opened fire at a school in the US.

The 16-year-old killed two adults and hurt nine children.

When she was asked why she did it Spencer famously said:

"I don't like Mondays."

The Boomtown Rats then used it as a title for their song about the incident.
