Airline Breaks Guitar, Singer Goes Viral

United Airlines baggage handlers busted the $3,500 Taylor guitar that the airline made country-western singer Dave Carroll gate check last year in Chicago. Passengers looking our the window at the tarmac actually watched the bag guys mangle the guitar in its case, Carroll says.

So after nearly a year of frustration trying to get the airline to reimburse him for the guitar, Carroll went viral with this video on YouTube, a part of the chorus of which is: "United, you broke my guitar ... I should've flown on someone else or gone by car 'cause United (beat) breaks guitars."

The chorus of three of Carroll's bandmates in sombreros is a nice touch.
