Trivia: Oasis
  • Black Sheep Hit: "Wonderwall" is their best-known song.
  • Creator Backlash:
    • Both Be Here Now and the song "Roll With It" for Noel Gallagher.
    • And the band name 'Oasis' for Liam Gallagher, who also refuses to play Oasis songs with Beady Eye. They got over this long enough enough to sing "Wonderwall" at the closing ceremonies for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.
    • Later, Noel finally disowned Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, conventionally seen as their lowest point, as a mistake, saying he wasn't on his best shape and "just wrote songs for the sake of making an album."
  • Name's the Same: No, Alan White is not the drummer for Yes.
  • One-Hit Wonder: In America, "Wonderwall" was their only big hit. Despite this, they still have a cult following and are highly influential there.
  • Revival by Commercialization: Inverted somehow: "Shakermaker" ripped off a Coca Cola jingle and the band was sued. They then confessed that "[they] drink Pepsi now."
    • And then parodied by the Oasis tribute band No Way Sis, who covered the Coca Cola jingle in Oasis' style.
    • Then, quite amazingly Coca-Cola used "Whatever" in the 125th anniversary commercials.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • When making (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, Noel presented Liam with two songs and told him to pick one to sing, and he would sing the other one himself. The songs? "Wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back In Anger". Imagine how the latter would sound with Liam's vocals...
    • Dig Out Your Soul was mostly credited as a return to form for the band... and then they broke up.
