#1 most hated band ever. The only band worse than Lynyrd Skynyrd because their fan-base not only includes mouth-breathing redneck fucks, but but most other sections of the idiot demographic group as well.

Inexpressibly CRAP.

I used to spend time with two girls who would play the Eagles constantly. They acted exactly like you would expect fans of the Eagles to act: conservative, close minded, and self consumed.

Needless to say I don't spend time with them anymore.

They are shit by default because they are note-perfect renditions. They proabably use sheet music in rehearsals.

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.


So true.

Their solo careers Kerble, that's what. But hey, I'd spare Joe Walsh on account of his selling Jimmy Page a 59 Les Paul for 500 bucks. And for being a hilarious drunk . And for James Gang. Don Henley on the other hand...

The only thing redeeming 'bout the Eagles is Joe Walsh.

James Gang is NOT CRAP...

I even like that "Life's been good to me so far" song.

I've been spending the last five minutes staring out the window and trying to decide who is worse: the Eagles or the Steve Miller Band?

Point in favor of the Eagles: Steve Miller had the annoying tendency to write songs in which the lyrics in the chorus had nothing to do with the lyrics in the verses.

Point in Steve Miller's favor: He didn't write "I Can't Tell You Why."

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.

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.



said version of this song

I'd much rather listen to The Eagles than Prince.

Brick Layer Cake covered a The Eagles song. It was awesome.
