“The Last Resort” is a song written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, which tells about how man inevitably destroys the places he finds beautiful. It was originally released on the Eagles’ album Hotel California on December 8, 1976. It was subsequently released as the B-side of “Life in the Fast Lane” single on May 3, 1977. In a 1978 interview with Rolling Stone, Henley said: “‘The Last Resort’, on Hotel California, is still one of my favorite songs…

That’s because I care more about the environment than about writing songs about drugs or love affairs or excesses of any kind. The gist of the song was that when we find something good, we destroy it by our presence — by the very fact that man is the only animal on earth that is capable of destroying his environment. The environment is the reason I got into politics: to try to do something about what I saw as the complete destruction of most of the resources that we have left. We have mortgaged our future for gain and greed.”
