Vengeance is mine, sayeth the guitarist

After having this link e-mailed to me by three separate people, I finally watched the "United Breaks Guitars" video on YouTube.


Summary: United Airlines broke Dave Carroll's $3,500 Taylor guitar. They refused to compensate him. He wrote a song about it, made a video with his band Sons of Maxwell, and posted it up on YouTube.

Where it has 3.5 million hits and counting.

Moral: Don't piss off a songwriter. Ever.

I've seen a lot of people have linked to that song, but Loudon Wainwright III has a much better one.
