408. The Boomtown Rats

At some point in time the Rock and Roll Hall Fame might induct Bob Geldof for his charitable work with Live Aid (and rightfully so we think), but the question of whether Geldof is worthy musically is very much in doubt. His musical high water mark was the artistically brilliant band, the Boomtown Rats which was amongst the most cerebral of the New Wave bands. The Rats were a good band, though likely not on the radar long enough for an induction, but it is conceivable that the Hall may honor Bob Geldof (and the Boomtown Rats by proxy) just to have the Irish philanthropist in.
