Why would he even hate Mondays in the first place when he doesn't have to go to work or school or whatever?

Fortunately for them, OP airs on Sunday. Also, I guess they don't like Getsuyoubi no Tawawa (Tawawa on Monday).

"I Don't Like Mondays"?

Seems like the band is a fan of Boomtown Rats (Bob Geldhof's 70s-early 80s band).

^ Yeah, it's a reference to a Bob Geldof song about the 1979 Cleveland Elementary School shootings in San Diego.

"I don't like Mondays" is the reasoning the shooter, Brenda Spencer, gave for her actions.

It's also something the tepid off-brand generic cola version of Garfield would say because true Garfield afficionados such as myself know that Garfield doesn't just dislike Mondays, he *hates* Mondays.
