Tell me why... by Little-rolling-bean Tell me why... by Little-rolling-bean
Here is the song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kobdb… is a really good song, you should check it out. 

This song is about a school shooting (Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego) that happened in 1979, 16 year old Brenda Ann Spencer killed two men, one was the principal and wounded 8 students and a police officer from her home across the road. Her reason? "I don't like Mondays". 

She made comments like "It was for no reason, just for fun. Like shooting ducks in a pond" and "The children looked like a heard of cows standing around, it was easy pickings" Animalaboos must love her 

She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. She also claims she was intoxicated at the time and was allegedly abused by her father. 

The band The Boomtown Rats made a song about it on the same year, and surprisingly it was a hit. It was the bands second number one single. 


Making a song about a shooting is kinda.. Offensive, but hey, it is a good song. One of my favourites. If it were to happen in this day and age it would cause a huge controversy.

If you wish to use this outside, please tell me and make sure it links here. You also do not need to permission, fav, watch or comment to use on your profile.
