The couple of okay Eagles songs I can think of, namely "Tequila Sunrise" and "New Kid In Town," feature Glenn Frey sounding (to me anyway) a lot like Gram Parsons.

Fuck anything Don Henley sings on.

I just found out today that the Eagles wrote a song about my friend and neighbor Kate! They recorded it in 1972 but it never came out. Kind of crazy and not the worst Eagles song by a long shot.

I've always hated the '70s smooth coke dreck. Eagles, Jackson Brown, Hall & Oates, Fleetwood Mac (their early stuff isn't terrible I guess), all of it has grated my ears for my entire life. The Eagles made it worse by having their comeback reunion tour when I was in high school, and that shit was absolutely unavoidable, everywhere you went there was that plinky live acoustic sound coming out of the speakers with an undertone of Eagles and cocaine, at restaurants, grocery stores, on the tee-vee, at my goddamn high school dances, even the local college radio station threw some of that garbage on the air. Lebowski just confirmed what I knew from since I was born.

The two threads at the top of C/NC are The Eagles and Barenaked Ladies vs. Smash Mouth.

Not long ago, a matter of hours really, I suggested that the Eagles were the worst music ever.

Well, now. Are they really worse than BNL or SM?

The ubiquity argument is there; but most of us recall when "One Week" and "All Star" were inescapable. It is of course true that there are a great many Eagles songs that are played as often as either of those now; and though you'll occasionally hear "Walking on the Sun," or while flipping through channels not being able to turn "The Big Bang Theory" off quickly enough, it's really just those two that are as ubiquitous as "Desperado," "Hotel California," "Take It Easy," "Life in the Fast Lane," "Already Gone," "Lyin' Eyes," "One of These Nights," "Victim of Love," "Take It to the Limit," "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Heartache Tonight," "The Long Run," ET. FUCKING AL.

It's precisely that the Eagles have SO MANY horrible songs that you're going to hear just by existing in this world that make them so pernicious. They are so, so crap.

The soundtrack to those times in the 70s when everything was brown except any of the people present.

Yeah those are cool live videos, thanks!

Nah, it wasn't brown, there were more colors than the present day. Probably more black people at the white band shows too.

I'm with zom-zom on a lot of the '70s stuffs... I like KISS, a handful of Fleetwood Mac songs, some Floyd, the Dan.... Just can't with this crap, though. It's for people who think James Taylor is too edgy. Lyrically as misanthropic as Steely Dan, but without any humor or panache; musically devoid of anything more interesting than a C7; and with an overall sense of grossness akin to walking in on your parents fucking.
