Sure it isn't "colitis"? Or can there only be one rock song about colitis?

I'm shocked no one has dragged out the old Fundamentalist Christian interpretation about the founding of the Church of Satan, satanic cults, etc. As a teenager in the 80's who went to a Fundamentalist Christian school, this was one of the common examples of the satanic nature of Rock & Roll music. Hotel California, Stairway to Heaven, and KISS were old standby's by anti-Rock preachers brought into youth group meetings. Haha

Yep. I listened to a whole sermon or whatever about Hotel California. Wish I could find it now. The only thing I remember is "Check out anytime you like, but you can never leave" means doing drugs

There's a high-end substance-abuse inpatient rehab nearby named Hotel California. I can't think of a potentially worse music-related name for a rehab, except maybe St. James Infirmary.

I stayed at a place in San Francisco once called the California Hotel. It made me just a bit uneasy until I did check out.
