Obviously the Eagles are one of the GOAT bands in American history.

The best selling band in America during the 70's, and their greatest hits album is the best selling album of the 20th century.

However I have this feeling they were not so popular outside of the States.

So do you even remember the Eagles?

Were they anything outside of America?

Just watched their three hour doc on netflix, amazing.

That's one of the few scenes from The Big Lebowski that I hated. Coen Bros must have it in for The Eagles :jose

I love The Eagles, anytime I hear 'Take It Easy' I bust out my portable karaoke machine and start bellowing from the top of my lungs.

But yet he was obsessed with fucking Creedence Clearwater Revival. :lmao Who I like, mind you, but obviously The Eagles are bigger and more influential.

Well we as Americans tend to think very "Americentric" about everything, so I can see that being a possibility.

I still love the Eagles though :).

The Eagles aren't even legendary in the States either. Nobody under 45 listens to the Eagles. They're a dying, if not dead, relic.

I'm under 45. And that's like saying the Rolling Stones are a relic. Influential bands live on no matter what year it is.

Well... believe it or not I am not 45 yet....and while I actually never liked the Eagles, I understand my preferences do not always equal what is good. Being able to understand your opinion maybe different from what is actually good is called maturing. Maybe one day you will get there ;)

I'd never say the same about the Stones.
Because you're biased, clearly.

The Rolling Stones have 8 #1 hits in the US. The Eagles have 5. Eagles' greatest hits was the highest selling album of the 20th century as stated in the OP.

But yes. Eagles are a relic. Stones live on. Or maybe... they're both pioneers of rock, remain influential to this day, and are both played on classic rock stations constantly.

Uh the Eagles play to sold out houses all over today, just like the Stones.

But just to remind you the Eagles outsold the Stones in America

If nothing else, "Hotel California" lives on as one of the ultimate classics of the '70s and a lot of teens and 20-somethings listen to that song. Is it their best? Probably not, but it alone keeps them a "living" relic.

lol I don't think because THE DUDE hates The Eagles that the Coens necessarily do. They just wrote that character as hating the Eagles. It made for a fucking hilarious scene.

That cabbie kills me every time.

Take it to the Limit is the best Eagles tune.
