Its kinda funny how people know who Bob Gelof is, nut have never heard of the Boomtown Rats, eh?


I've recently gotten into them and find them very enjoyable.


Recommended songs?

Man, I remember really liking Mary of the Fourth Form! It just sounded so exotic, cos I had no idea what a 'fourth form' was...

I think they should have released "Lookin' After No. 1", as all their other songs were mediocre, IMHO.

I don't like straight edge because it's part of Hardcore, and I don't like Hardcore because, aside from the terrible music, the kids are often very homophobic.


You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful.

I really enjoy Bob Geldofs voice..its so flawed that its flawless, if that makes sense.

I don't really think of them as punk, as such, but a great band nonetheless.

I suggest buying the Fine Art of Surfacing album, all the tracks on it are great.
