* TakeThat: "Live Forever" was written in response to the song "[[{{Music/Nirvana}} I Hate Myself and Want To Die]]"; although Noel Gallagher admired KurtCobain, he found the song too depressing for his tastes:

** Also at the beginning of their cover of The Rolling Stones's "Street Fighting Man."



** All their albums, really. Even ''Definitely Maybe'' is very loud by 1994 standards and clips to a certain extent. ''Morning Glory?'' and pretty much all their albums after are even worse.

Added DiffLines:

* UpToEleven: Be Here Now, in many respects. Specifically, the song lengths, the number of guitars, the drums, and the orchestras... The list goes on.


Added DiffLines:

** And if you thought "Champagne Supernova" was bad...
*** "Magic Pie" features the chorus: ''Cause you see me, I've got my magic pie/Think of me, yeah, that was me, I was that passerby/I've been and now I've gone''
*** "Hey Now!" features: ''The first thing I saw as I walked through the door/Was a sign on the wall that read/"It said you might never know that I want you to know/What's written inside of your head"''

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, [[SiblingRivalry 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}}.

* LineOfSightName: On the album names ''Standing on the Shoulder of Giants'' (a [[BeamMeUpScotty mispelling]] - it's shoulder'''s''' - of the IsaacNewton quote on the side of [[http://img1.photographersdirect.com/img/18574/wm/pd1106351.jpg two pound coins]]), and ''Heathen Chemistry'' (a T-shirt Noel saw), which also includes a song with that in "The Hindu Times". Even the band's name is this, coming from a poster advertising their gig at The Swindon Oasis leisure centre.

* GrowingUpSucks: ''The Masterplan'' has both sides of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism on this, "Stay Young" (feeling young no matter how old) and 'Fade Away" ("while we're living, the dreams we have as children fade away").

** 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 96. Show all.
