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.
