David Acord is a sound engineer for Skywalker Sound, the sound division of Lucasfilm - he's also a huge fan of the Eagles.

According to an interview at PhiladelphiaEagles.com, he combined his love of the Eagles with his love of Star Wars, and snuck a reference into "The Force Awakens" as well as "Rogue One".

In The Force Awakens, Acord provided the voice for Teedo, an alien scavenger, and had to create a language for it. He was learning Thai for an upcoming vacation, so he mixed in some phrases in Thai and dropped in the names of Eagles players Brent Celek and Fletcher Cox.

I've listened to that clip over and over...the first time I thought I heard a "Celek" but I haven't been able to pick it up since...and I think I hear a "Fletcher" but I'm not totally sure.

Acord also inserted an Eagles reference into Rogue One, and this one has me totally lost.

When Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) are looking for Saw Gerrera in Jedha City, the script called for a prayer chant in the background. Acord decided take the Eagles’ fight song, "Fly, Eagles, Fly" and translate it to Esperanto, which was designed in the late 1800s to be a universal language. You can allegedly hear the line “Hit ‘em low, hit ‘em high" but I can't pick it up at all. There's so much going on in that scene, I can't even pick up a religious-sounding chant at all, let alone pick out the rhythm of the Eagles' fight song sung in a different language.

Unfortunately I can't find video of that clip, but Deadspin got a hold of the scene - they can't hear it either.

As much as I hate the Eagles, I still get a kick out of this sort of thing. If I were a sound editor I guarantee I'd sneak all sorts of random stuff into the mix.
