Hotel California by The Eagles ranked # 37 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.
Hotel California was released by Eagles in 1976.
Using Hotel California as a metaphor for the nation, The Eagles
touched on many themes, including innocence (and the loss thereof),
the dangers, temptations, and transient nature of fame, shallow
relationships, divorce and loss of love, the end results of manifest
destiny, and the "American Dream".
Several tracks on the album were #1 hits in Billboard: "New Kid in
Town", on February 26, 1977, and "Hotel California" on May 7, 1977.
Hotel California is the Eagles best selling studio album. Since its
release in late 1976, it has sold over 16 million copies in the U.S.
The cover image is of the Beverly Hills Hotel. However, claims have
been made by various hotels around the world to be the actual
inspiration for the song, most notably the Hotel California in Todos
Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. However Don Henley has refuted
