A band called Sons of Maxwell was on a United Airlines flight last year and they witnessed the baggage handlers throwing their guitars out on the tarmac. When they arrived and checked their luggage, one of their $3500 Taylor guitars was broken. After United denied paying for the guitar, the band vowed they would make songs and videos. From the singer, after being declined compensation for 9 months, “So I promised the last person to finally say no to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world.”

Not really the best song I’ve ever heard, but I love the motivations.
