* DorkAge: In a rare case of by the band's own admission, Noel Gallagher writes off much of the late '90s output, and also chunks of the mid '00s. On a greatest hits DVD, he even went so far as to ask why somebody didn't just to tell them to "stop".

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The ''New Musical Express'' spoofed the band's thrall to Music/TheBeatles and their tendency to plagarize with a fictitious interview in which Noel Gallagher claimed to be '[[BiggerThanJesus Bigger Than God]]'. Just one year later, in real life, he made exactly the same claim.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: "Champagne Supernova" and its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ni2G1eTB-Bs video]], even though there are ridiculous oxymorons and unrelated adjectives, and the line "Where were you while we were getting high?"

* 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!".

Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: Just who 'Sally' from "Don't Look Back in Anger" is supposed to be has been debated among fans for ''years'', despite Noel saying numerous times that it is not any specific person (the name was just chosen randomly or it was Liam's idea, reports differ). This still hasn't stopped fans pestering him about it. For twenty years, fans have still been coming up with such EpilepticTrees theories as her being a former girlfriend of one of the bandmates, her being the same subject as Music/TheStoneRoses' song "Sally Cinnamon", and even her being a metaphor for drugs.

* BrokenBase - Every album except the first two has fans arguing that it's good or bad. It's a good indication that when 100 fans were surveyed as to which songs should appear on their GreatestHitsAlbum that there was ''no song that appeared on everyone's list.'' Yes, that includes the popular, iconic Oasis songs like "Live Forever", "Wonderwall", "Acquiesce" and "Don't Look Back in Anger". The base is ''just that broken.''
* EarWorm - Uncontestably, "Wonderwall."

* [[FirstInstallmentWins First Two Albums Win]] - All Oasis fans with very few exceptions like the first two albums, and to the general public those albums (along with two popular non-album songs from the same era, "Acquiesce" and "Whatever") ''are'' Oasis. As to the others... see BrokenBase.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff - "Don't Go Away" is a well-liked album track in the UK, but one of the band's biggest pop and rock radio hits in the United States. It's the reason they played it on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' in 1997 as opposed to their current single at the time, "Stand by Me".

* PainfulRhyme - Both Noel and Liam Gallagher are frequently accused of relying on a rhyming dictionary for lyrics.
* SignatureSong - "Wonderwall", [[Podcast/WelcometoNightVale the only 90s song visible from space]]. Second place is "Don't Look Back in Anger" in the UK and "Champagne Supernova" in the U.S.
* 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.

* ThatOneLevel - For the campaign, it's "Up the Nile" where in the majority of levels, levels are divided by the river, making it impossible to connect the cities and much harder to defend against barbarian attacks. For the level modifier, it's the meteors which can destroy cities and roads.
