Top Five ....... Day Four
When United Airlines employees broke this man's Taylor guitar, he tried for a year to get them to pay to repair it. They refused. He even offered to accept flying time as payment. They still refused.
When he wrote this song to tell his story, he had no idea that it would be an overnight YouTube sensation. Of course United scrambled to make restitution after the song was so popular that CNN even ran a story on it....too little, too late.
The name of the song is United Breaks Guitars. The band is Sons of Maxwell. I especially liked one of the comments that was left on the clip......Guitar Breaks United.
