The band were known for their over-the-top rock and roll attitude and perennial fixation on Music/TheBeatles, which many times eclipsed their musical aspects; Noel Gallagher was also known to "borrow" musical snippets and riffs from older songs, which didn't help the case. The Gallagher brothers were infamous for their fistfights, rude remarks, and most importantly, [[CainAndAbel quarrelling amongst themselves]]; Noel was particularly known for his entertaining wit and antics during interviews. Musically speaking, Oasis were defined largely by Noel's status as a PromotedFanboy, and can be pretty much summed up as classic British pop/rock (The Beatles, TheWho, T. Rex, etc.) updated with more modern influences (TheStoneRoses) and played with a wall-of-sound approach indebted to PunkRock and {{Shoegazing}}.

Even the band's name is this, coming from a poster advertising their gig at The Swindon Oasis leisure centre.

** CompletelyMissingThePoint: The title "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" was taken from Cobain's deadpan response to a journalist who asked him how he was feeling. The lyrics are about how ridiculous it is to whine about stupid things. [[HarsherInHindsight Then Kurt Cobain shot himself, which rather diminished the humor.]]

* ''The Masterplan'' (1998) (B-sides collection)



Some would include their B-sides collection, 1998's ''The Masterplan''; Oasis had the rare distinction, at least in their early years, of producing numerous B-sides to singles that became as well-loved as their 'proper' songs, hence this compilation.

* CastsNoShadow: "Cast No Shadow" is about a man who can't express what he really wants to say and has allowed himself to be dominated by others.

* BiggerThanJesus: In TheNineties, music periodical ''The New Music Express'' (''NME'') spoofed the band's thrall to Music/TheBeatles and their tendency to plagiarize with a fictitious interview in which Noel Gallagher claimed to be "bigger than God." Just one year later, in RealLife, [[HilariousInHindsight Noel Gallagher made exactly the same claim]], though the entire point to JohnLennon's original remarks in 1966 seemed [[CompletelyMissingThePoint completely lost on him]].
