THERE’S MORE TO THE ROCK BAND ‘EAGLES’ THAN MEETS THE EYE
Unless you were born yesterday or have been living under a rock you must have heard of the Rock band ‘Eagles’ or at least their number one hit single ‘Hotel California’.
While many unbelievers and even Christians justify the lifestyle and music of the Eagles, there’s more to it than meets the eye! Almost every other song composed and sung by them are blasphemous and a mockery of sacred things. Just to mention a few . . . .
Hotel California – Hotel California is the hit album and song produced in 1976 by the Eagles’ rock band. On the inside of the album cover, pictured to the right, Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan in 1966) is seen peering down from the balcony (who is circled in red).
The Eagles’ manager, Larry Salter, admitted in the Waco Tribune-Herald (Feb. 28, 1982), that the Eagles were involved with the Church of Satan! Not surprisingly, one of the Eagles’ songs is titled “Have A Good Day in Hell.” Is it just a coincidence that the name of the street upon which the Church of Satan resides is “CALIFORNIA STREET”???!!! And if that bald-headed man is NOT Anton LaVey, then why would you have a bald-headed man that looks like Anton LaVey in the balcony on your album cover?
“In their new 2:33 hour video documentary titled, “HISTORY OF THE EAGLES,” the band’s co-founder and lead singer, Don Henley, openly calls Christians “LUNATICS” for claiming that the Eagles 1976 hit song (and album of the same name), “Hotel California,” promotes Anton LaVey and his Church of Satan. According to Mr. Henley, the song is simply about innocence becoming experienced
I DON’T recommend that anyone buy the “HISTORY OF THE EAGLES,” because somewhere in the 2:33 hour documentary they show a totally butt-naked woman (one of the fans from the audience) get up on stage and she bends over with her wiggling rear toward Glenn Frey. They’re loving every minute of it. She’s wearing no underwear or bra, nothing. It is wickedness! This is serving the Devil. The Eagles are serving the Devil, Satan!!! I’ll triple-dog dare you that Don Henley would never call a beautiful naked fan on stage a “LUNATIC,” like he does Christians who expose Rock’s wickedness. Are we really lunatics as Christians for telling the truth about the Church of Satan?” – David J. Stewart
Some of their other lyrics also refer to the occult: They had another hit number – “Witchy Woman” (“She’s been sleeping in the devil’s bed”), “Good Day in Hell” (“In that big book of names, I wanna go down in flames”), and “One of These Nights (“You’ve got your demons, you’ve got desires, well, I’ve got a few of my own, I’ve been looking for the daughter of the devil himself…”).
BUILDING THE PERFECT BEAST is a Don Henley solo album from 1984. The cover has an Eye of Horus photo of him (one eye hidden).
According to Glenn Frey, the Eagles themselves are “the Beast” (the “steely knives” that “just can’t kill the Beast” means that “Steely Dan can’t kill the Eagles”, according to him).
Even the name of the band is symbolic: The eagle is a symbol of the Phoenix who is consumed in fire but rises from the ashes to be born again.
There is “plenty of room at the Hotel California” (in Hell) because “the gate is wide, and broad is the way that leads to destruction” [Matthew 7:13].
The Eagles disbanded in July 1980 but reunited in 1994 and one of their first Albums is titled – “Hell Freezes Over”
All of this is nothing but a blasphemy of God’s Word and His truth! Does Hell ever ‘freeze over’?
“And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into Hell, into THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED: Where their worm dieth not, and THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED!” [Mark 9:43,44]
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER!” [Rev 20:10]
But almost every wicked blasphemous Rock musician and Rock band have made a career by poking fun and blaspheming the truth of Heaven and Hell!
Even way back in 1971 John Lennon of the Beatles had a hit single titled “Imagine”. This song ‘Imagine’ would become Lennon’s legacy to a world living in rebellion against God. In the song, Lennon paints an “unrealistic” picture of life in the minds of his listeners. He sees a world without Heaven or Hell, without religion. He sees a world without countries, borders and without war. Though such a “dream” may seem admirable to many people, Lennon’s dream CLEARLY requires an abandonment of God and His Word. Sin, Judgment, Heaven and Hell are ignored.
Bon Scott of AC/DC co-authored the 1979 popular song “Highway to Hell”! The song refers to the self destructive lifestyle of the rock and roll artist with the lyrics: “Hey Satan, payin’ my dues. Playing in a rocking band. Hey Momma, look at me I’m on my way to the promised land. I’m on the highway to hell.” Shortly afterwards Bon Scott choked to death on his own vomit while binging on vodka! The devil’s little joke!
The late Rock star David Bowie was right when he said – “Rock has always been the devil’s music, you can’t convince me that it isn’t. I honestly believe everything I’ve said—I believe rock and roll is dangerous. … I feel that we’re only heralding something even darker than ourselves!”
And there’s no such thing as “Christian Rock” either! You can’t take something that’s obviously demonic and rebellious and clean it up for the Lord! Lita Ford American Rock guitarist, vocalist and song writer once said – “Listen, rock’n roll ain’t church. . It’s nasty business. You gotta be nasty too. If you’re goody, goody, you can’t sing or play it. . .” (Los Angeles Times, August 7, 1988)
“Oh but I don’t care about the lifestyle or beliefs of these Rock musicians. I just like their music.” Hey, their music is a result of their lifestyle and a fruit of their beliefs! And “the fruit of the wicked is SIN!” [Prov 10:16]
“It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the SONG OF FOOLS!” [Ecc 7:5] In Scripture ‘the fool’ is not simply one who is an idiot or mentally deficient, but the man who leaves God out of his life and acts independently of Him. ‘The Fool’ in scripture is a Godless wicked person!
And the scriptural admonition to you IF you are a Christian is to “have NO FELLOWSHIP with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (expose) them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret!” [Eph 5:11,12]
