Rare were a Northern Irish band in the 1990s from Derry. The line-up consisted of singer Mary Gallagher, Locky Morris, Seán Ó'Néill (aka John O'Neill, formerly of The Undertones and That Petrol Emotion) and David Whiteside. Morris and Ó'Néill were the main songwriters.

Despite some positive reviews in the music press, their only notable chart appearance was the single "Something Wild" which reached #57 in the UK Singles Chart in 1996. Rare disbanded soon after the release of their first and only album in 1998.
