Bagpipes are quite possibly the awesomest instrument ever. Even over guitar. I'm looking at a rosewood practice chanter, but I want to find a teacher before I commit to anything.

Sounds like shes referring to Icky Thump.

It might be Icky Thump by the White Stripes, it mentions Mexico and has something that might sound like bagpipes in it, although it isn't.

There are a couple of songs on the album that DO have bagpipes on though - Prickly Thorn and St. Andrew.

I know this isn't right, but Tom Morello's guitar sounds like a bagpipe in Voice of the Voiceless. BTW, the only 2 songs a bagpipe can be played to is Amazing Grace and Scotland the Brave. Everything else it just sounds weird. On those two it sounds suitable but annoying.

EDIT: I thought the really annyoing sound in Icky Thump was a weird keyboard effect. In the video he's like playing with a small keyboard while it does those sounds.

Dropkick Murphys and Flatfoot 56 are my two favorite bands who use them.

I never knew so many people hated Icky Thump, though It probably was that one since it mentions mexico and the synth or keyboard sounds a little bit like a bagpipe.
