Why is there a NOT CRAP option?




















Seriously, why is it there?

I do not know why I dislike this band as much as I do.

Oh, it is their songs and music. Right!

I think their solo efforts are equally as boring and a drag to listen to... although I like the way Joe Walsh talks... well not like but you know...I think it's funny how he sounds like an idiot.

Nice work, ghostface. You decided to add a "not crap" option to the poll, and somebody accidentally clicked it. This is what happens when people aren't careful. Let this be a lesson to you -- a lesson to us all.
Why do you make it so scary to post here.

Probably the band I hate most. The fact that the Eagles have sold more records than anybody else makes me sad.

I will give Don Henley one tiny waffle factor for getting up on stage with Mojo Nixon to sing "Don Henley Must Die."

Still, I guess the Eagles serve an important purpose, if only to distinguish bad music from good.

There was an SNL skit a few years back where Ben Stiller and a couple of other chaps were at a bar and Glen Frey (played by Will Ferrell) walks into the bar. Stiller says that "the H is O", and tries to get Ferrell into bed. He does and it's humiliating (Ferrell makes Stiller eat dog food, etc). I laughed at Ferrell's portrayal and the whole "the H is O" thing.

This skit and that scene in The Big Lebowski are the only good things that have ever come as a result of the Eagles' existence.

yes, that skit was wonderful. Wasn't it like a short film that Stiller did with the guys on his own and brought it in? I remember something about that..

This fact is kinda surprising, but I guess the Eagles being CRAP is rightfully a foregone conclusion.

CRAP, no waffle factor, but they're still a tiny fraction less bad than Aerosmith. Aerosmith are the only band the Eagles are less bad than.

Absolutely and 100% wrong!

Aerosmith recorded "Rocks". This album is incredible. "Rocks" can be rightfully considered to be among the best rock music albums ever made.

Aerosmith also recorded "Toys In The Attic". This album is pretty good!

Outside of those two albums, Aerosmith has also released a number of singles/album tracks that are good.

placeholder! You really hate Aerosmith! This is okay!

But they are much better than The Eagulls!

True!

I, once many many many moons ago, worked at a "big box" retailer, about the time that the Eagles Reunion CD came out. Holy shit, what a piece of shit record, with piece of shit versions of songs that made me long for the original versions which until this point I had never wanted to ever hear again.

The Reunion DVD (VHS at that time) = "action" visuals of the same horseshit.

The version of "Hotel California" is all acoustic guitars, and Don Henley chose to play a rimshot in place of the snare hit. The song never ever "kicks" in.

For like 6 minutes the drum beat is just "boom-click boom-click....." WTF?

How is it possible that this "Hotel California" song could be made to suck any more than it already did?!

Congratulations, The Eagles: you have done the impossible. FA-Q.

CRAP.
It's like you put everything into a bottle inside itself.

Crap that sits on top of all other crap and keeps on crapping. Boy how I do hate these... E Galls.

For a number of reasons. To wit:

In their hands, they took a genre that Gram Parsons sired, and single-handedly turned it into almost complete crap. Shame on them.

Their songs are meant to be morality tales about the excesses of Southern California livin', but end up romanticizing it, becoming popular hot tub cocaine party soundtracks in the process.

Don Henley is a self-important little twat of a man. Fuck him blind!

They somehow convinced Joe Walsh (not crap, other than being a member of these... E Galls) to become an... E Gall. Wasn't he doing just fine in the James Gang? I don't know the history of the James Gang, so maybe they broke up so they gave him an offer he couldn't refuse. A pity. I still like Joe Walsh, a true rock 'n' roll fruitcake.

The Eagles:

could play their instruments very well
could sing very well
could write songs very well
could make records very well
sounded great on the radio, in a car, or in a bar, anywhere else
got more chicks than Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones put together
had/did more/better drugs than anyone else
were better than Gram Parsons, Wilco, and Palace put together
"After the Thrill is Gone" does more in one song that the entire recorded output of GBV, The Clash, and The Stooges

were the greatest band of all time.

definitely, Not Crap.
