“Hotel California”—The Eagles
For many years (and perhaps even now still), people believed that “Hotel California” by The Eagles focused on satanism or the Devil Himself. Some people have cited the album’s cover art for their reasoning behind this theory; others bring up the line “they just can’t kill the beast” from the song itself, saying that members of The Eagles themselves may be satanic worshipers. None of that appears to be true, however, as band members Don Henley and Glenn Frey have stated the song is really metaphorically describing excess in America and the Los Angeles high life that the band experienced.
