List Rules Real Bagpipes must be used. So songs like In a big country, run runaway, & Copperhead Rd are excluded. Marching Bands & traditional bands are excluded.

This is a list of songs that have used Bagpipes, by pop/rock bands. I have excluded Big Country, Slade, Steve Earle as they simulated the effects using a Guitar or Synthesiser.
