Hoever, the clip you just posted gives me goosebumps. I love that performance, love that band and hearing an old favorite like that played that evening was just perfect, doubly so with Berry on the drums.

Javy's back in the AL.

It's really all peachy until you hit about '98.

John Mellencamp?! AC/DC? Lynyrd Skynyrd (You can make the argument about them being indicative of Country Rock or the Outlaw Country scene, but where the fuck is Waylon Jennings?), we've already talked at length about Aerosmith, and I hate the fucking The Eagles, man.

JOHN MELLENCAMP. Whose country is this again?

Do something different, Bret.
Because their Greatest Hits album sold a whole bunch of records? Because "Hotel California" is on Classic Rock radio every 30 minutes? Name another Eagles song, and who the hell cites them as a major influence. Have they even recorded a new song together since the '70s? It doesn't appeal to me personally, but I don't see any sort of lasting significance to it either.

And FUCK JOHNNY JOHN-JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP. He's like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen's retarded younger brother. It's like if fucking Ant-Man got into the Superhero Hall of Fame before Spider-Man or Iron Man, holy shit. Johnny Cougs has opened the door for fringe acts like Bryan Adams or Rick Springfield to get in. WTF???

THIS IS OUUUUURRRRRRRR COUNTRRYYYYYYYYY.

I can't think of anything worse than The Eagles, really.

Outside of knowing the music sucked in ways dictionaries still can't adequately describe, I also know that Don Henley used to (still does?) chain barely/not-legal girls to his bed.

So THAT'S what The End of the Innocence is about!

Well we know Jerry Lee Lewis probably voted for The Eagles to get in. Maybe Rick James and Chuck Berry, too.

And I'm sure GAF approves.

Never was an Eagles fan, but these songs were everywhere during the 70s. If you were alive and didn't live in a cave, you knew these songs (whether you wanted to or not).

Should they be in the HOF? Who really gives a fuck? Does it really mean anything? If a musician or band doesn't get in are they suddenly considered shit? Or do the people that like them still like them and the people who think they were shit still think they are shit?

I guess LMP should have said "Name another GOOD Eagles song".

Yep.

If that's the case, the list of songs make me glad that I wasn't around in the '70s.

I'm annoyed by how many of these I recognise.

"One Of These Nights" is the best of a bad lot.

Without the Eagles, we'd never have had this:

YouTube - Mojo Nixon & The Toadliquors - Don Henley Must Die / Live at Club Clearview / Dallas, Texas 1994

So thats Hof worthiness in and of itself.

Indeed.

That whole night was great. Eddie's induction speech, the performances with Berry and, yeah, Gardening At Night is a favorite of mine as well.

I've always really liked Javy but hopefully he can get over whatever it is that makes his struggle in the postseason. I'm still slightly bitter that we started him in Game 1 of our Divisional series against the Rays in the '08 playoffs. He was awful that afternoon and it dropped us in a hole we weren't able to climb out of. I wish nothing but the best for him, though.

Those videos are in my "self-love" hall of fame. I sent many potential children to a watery grave watching those videos.
