youve got me, my friends band played it at a battle of the bands though. it was pretty good. my guess is reel big fish seeing as they do a lot of covers.

Don Henley did a ska version of the song in 2001.
Maybe you're thinking of that.

And maybe Don Henley and Hotel California both suck.

I don't like straight edge because it's part of Hardcore, and I don't like Hardcore because, aside from the terrible music, the kids are often very homophobic.


You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful.

It isn't ska, but NOFX did a cover, but they left out the chorus.

I searched it on a music program.

It's under

Pennywise

or

Less than Jake

or

NOFX

but it's not the sound of any of the three.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

It might be MFATGG because the bassist from nofx is in mfatgg and the chorus of the song i think your talking about doesnt have words just horns
My basses:
red w/ black pickguard EB-0 (Jennifer) <-- crap bass
Dean Playmate Edge 09 (Casandra)
<-- got it used for 70 and i still love it
My guitar
Epiphone DR-100 (Layla)
<--nothing special but cheap
My amp:
Crate BT-50 Bass Amp(Butch)

Edi Fitzroy did a reggae cover on the album Reggae Rocks: The Tide Is High. It is commonly mislabeled as ziggy marley or bob marley. That may be the the version your referring to.

EDIT: I remember a Me First And The Gimee Gimees Cover Of This song. Fat Mike from NOFX is in this band. They suck (As does NOFX) but i do remember them covering it. Let me look into their discoraphy.
