The original name of the Boomtown Rats was the "Nightlife Thugs".[2] The name Boomtown Rats was taken from a novel entitled Bound for Glory by Woody Guthrie.

The Boomtown Rats had eighteen hit singles in the UK, including "Rat Trap" and "I Don't Like Mondays". Crowe has also been part of The Velcro Flies[3] (with ex-Boomtown Rat Garry Roberts) and Gung~Ho (with ex-Boomtown Rat Johnny Fingers).
