On this date in 1977, The Boomtown Rats released their debut single, "Lookin' After No. 1". It was backed by "Born To Burn" and a live track called "Barefootin'". The A side appeared on their self-titled debut album. The live track was added to the album as a bonus track when re-released on CD. "Born To Burn" was excluded from both. The single reached the #11 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Dublin, Ireland punk/new wave band disbanded in 1986 after six albums.
