    I was thinking the same thing...Mylie Cyrus and Don Henley shallow? No comparison

    What about faking cramps? Instant buzz kill if the D starts flopping between plays.

    It's a shallow as they could get. Blatant attempt to write an anthem as if they were a band with meaning (see Stones "Can't Always Get What You Want", The Who "Won't Get Fooled Again", Zeppelin "When The Levee Breaks"), droning, uninspired guitar wankarama at the end, juvenile mystical lyrics. It highlights every reason why the Eagles sucked, which of course made it so popular to the masses.

    I'm with you that their music sucks. But "you can check out anytime you want, but you can never leave" just might be one of the best lyrics ever written. Maybe it was an accidental lyric, but I can't think of another lyric that is such a meaningful warning toward the choices we make in life. For me, it's one of those lines that stops and makes me think every time I hear it.

    It's that dang RAP music that is the cause of all the violence we see around us - Eagles are prime Example #1 !!!









    She sure didn't have a peaceful easy feeling.
    Vernett Bader, 54, is accused of stabbing her live-in ex-boyfriend Monday night because he wouldn't stop listening to The Eagles at their North Charleston, S.C. residence, according to ABC News 4.
    Police say Bader was watching TV with the man's brother and told her 64-year-old ex to turn his music off. The ex responded by telling her to "shut up" and took her tolerance to the limit by continuing to play the classic rock tunes.
    Apparently not one to take it easy, Bader then allegedly grabbed a bread knife and started swinging it at the man. He told police by the time he managed to get the knife away from her, the desperado was already gone, headed to the kitchen to get another, the Post and Courier reported. The victim locked himself in the bathroom to get away from her.
    Police say Bader admitted to stabbing the man, but said it was out of self-defense because he was choking her.
    Investigators, who noted there were no marks on her neck, did not believe her allegedly lyin' eyes.
    She's at the Charleston County Jail now, and will likely make a court appearance one of these nights.
    Eagles songs aren't the only music to push someone over the edge. In April, a Colorado woman allegedly started choking her boyfriend after he sang Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" 25 times.

    And in an update, I saw on twitter that the DA said that if she does get sent away for this crime, she could check out any time she wants, but she can never leave.

    that whole song is a lyrical gem... I hate music snobs. Moonie is the type of person to yell out "it's fake" at the movies.
