* BaseBreakingCharacter: More of Base-Breaking Character''s'' - either you will love the Gallagher brothers and suspend your disbelief that they're both {{Jerkass}}es or you will absolutely loathe them both for constantly letting their problems ruin the band's music and by an extent, the band's end. That ''includes'' Liam and '''especially''' Noel's self entitled behavior when it comes to anything, including music.

Noel's reputation has dipped these days though and has become more liked for his JerkWithAHeartOfGold / DeadpanSnarker behavior compared to Liam's obsessive pint shots at his older brother.




to:

* TheWoobie: Noel for pretty much being Liam's iron pole for several years. Does range from JerkassWoobie to IronWoobie, considering he's able to move on from Oasis and become probably the most popular artist compared to his ex-bandmates.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: [[Music/TheRutles Neil]] [[Music/TheBonzoDogBand Innes]] sued the band over the similarity of their "Whatever" to his "How Sweet to Be an Idiot". This was settled out of court, with Innes receiving royalties and a writing credit. They have been accused of pilfering elements of [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19848_7-famous-musicians-who-stole-some-their-biggest-hits.html other songs]] as well.

** Then there's the much later one between fans of Beady Eye (and Liam's solo career) and High Flying Birds. There aren't many people that are fans of both.

* 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 the 90's]] was the US. They had one top ten hit ("Wonderwall", which peaked at #8 in January of 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 of 1996 and "The Shock of Lightning" peaked at #93 in October of 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.

* ThrowItIn: Noel can be heard whispering "Let me take me watch off" right before "Talk Tonight" begins.
** Also, there is a quiet [[Music/TheBeatles "One, two, three, fow-uh!"]] at the beginning of "The Masterplan".

* {{Applicability}}: Probably the reason why "Champagne Supernova", with its [[WordSaladLyrics ridiculous lyrics]], is a fan favourite is because it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. As Noel said in a 2009 interview:
-->This writer, he was going on about the lyrics to "Champagne Supernova", and he actually said to me: 'You know, the one thing that's stopping it being a classic is the ridiculous lyrics.' And I went: 'What do you mean by that?' And he said: 'Well, Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball what's that mean?' And I went: 'I don't know. But are you telling me, when you've got 60,000 people singing it, they don't know what it means? It means something different to every one of them.'

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many people had this reaction to ''Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants'', despite the demand for change from much of the music press following ''Be Here Now''. When they vary their sound the press hounded them for it. Many fans see ''Giants'' (as well as ''Be Here Now'') as misunderstood and unfairly maligned records, especially with tracks such as "Go Let It Out" and the fan favourite "Gas Panic!".
