The Boomtown Rats

Previous Names: The Nightlife Thugs

Lead guitarist Garry Roberts threatened to quit if the band did not change its name from "The Nightlife Thugs" to something else. So Geldof suggested the name "The Boomtown Rats" after the childhood gang in Woody Guthrie's autobiography "Bound for Glory".
