* BiggerThanJesus: In TheNineties, the music periodical ''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 Music/JohnLennon's original remarks in 1966 seemed [[ComicallyMissingThePoint completely lost on him]].
* BreakupBreakout: Noel outshined his former bandmates by reaching #1 with his solo debut album.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The "All your dreams are made/When you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade" line from "Morning Glory" is just a really nice way of saying that the singer is addicted to cocaine.
* GreatestHitsAlbum: Taking until over twelve years into the band's hitmaking career, with 2006's end-of-record-contract ''Stop the Clocks'' and even then this doesn't feature all the hits, being Noel Gallagher's personal selection: on the sole basis that he didn't want a GreatestHitsAlbum while the band were still active, but if he didn't involve himself then ExecutiveMeddling would result in a substandard compilation.

* JumpCut: The music video for "Songbird" features a pretty awkward one. Liam is shown playing guitar under a tree and then the song suddenly jumps in. It's clear the editor was trying to get Liam's notes to blend into the song, but they didn't do a very good job.
* LesserStar: Anyone without the surname Gallagher. Although during their heyday in the mid 90s, Noel once stated that Bonehead would go up to people in the street and inquire to them if they knew who he was, and each time being told by the person ''with a look of bewilderment'' that he was Bonehead of course, meaning that for a time at least, the other members weren't ''those other guys''.

* OneHitWonder: Played straight in the US, averted pretty much everywhere else. In fact, the only place where Oasis wasn't one of the biggest band in the world during TheNineties was the US. They had one top ten hit ("Wonderwall", which peaked at #8 in January 1996), and they only had two other singles chart there, and even then, they didn't reach very high ("Don't Look Back in Anger" peaked at #55 in April 1996 and "The Shock of Lightning" peaked at #93 in October 2008). This can partly be blamed on Billboard, as many of their singles, despite being reviving huge airplay and sales, were illegible to chart, due to the controversial rule (disbanded in 1998) that only songs released as singles could chart. Many of their songs weren't released as singles in the US until their popularity had died down.

'''Oasis''' was a British AlternativeRock band strongly associated with the '90s {{Britpop}} movement, along with their archnemeses {{Music/Blur}}. The band was established (initially as The Rain) in 1991 by vocalist Liam Gallagher, guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, bassist Paul "Guigsy" [=McGuigan=] and drummer Tony [=McCarroll=]; to little success, until [[ControlFreak Noel Gallagher]], Liam's older brother, came out of the blue and took total control of the band which nobody protested, for he and his songs were just that good. Led by the older Gallagher, the band went on to achieve stellar success in the mid-'90s and onward: the zenith being "the Battle of Britpop" with rival band Blur, and the album ''(What's The Story) Morning Glory?'' shifting over 4.6m copies in the UK to currently rank as the country's fourth-highest seller of all time. As the Britpop trend died out towards the turn of the millennium, Oasis survived and prospered into the new century: managing in total to produce seven studio albums (all UK Number Ones), go 14 years without missing the Top 5 with a 'proper' single, and ultimately sell over 70 million album copies worldwide. They finally imploded in 2009, after one bust-up too many between the Gallagher brothers led to Noel's departure. Prior to this, they'd also gone through some less terminal lineup changes:
