YMMV / Oasis

The band
  • Base Breaker: More of Base Breakers, Either you will love the Gallagher brothers and suspend your disbelief that they're both JerkAsses 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.
  • Broken Base - 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 Greatest Hits Album 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.
  • Ear Worm - Uncontestably, "Wonderwall."
    • A lot of others too. "Don't Look Back in Anger", "Champagne Supernova", "D'you Know What I Mean", "Live Forever", "Slide Away", "Morning Glory", "Some Might Say", "Cast No Shadow", list goes on.
  • Face of the Band - The Gallagher brothers.
  • Fandom Rivalry: With blur.
  • 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 Broken Base.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff - "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 Saturday Night Live in 1997 as opposed to their current single at the time, "Stand by Me".
    • Similarly, "Champagne Supernova" was not released as a single anywhere else but the United States, where it's probably their best known song outside of "Wonderwall".
    • "Whatever" seems to be well-liked in Japan, having been used in TV advertisements. However, in other countries, maybe not so much.
  • Memetic Mutation: Anyway, here's Wonderwall.
  • Painful Rhyme - Both Noel and Liam Gallagher are frequently accused of relying on a rhyming dictionary for lyrics.
  • Signature Song - "Wonderwall", 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.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song - Neil 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 other songs as well.
    • To be precise, the verse of "Lyla" sounds remarkably similar to "Street Fighting Man" by The Rolling Stones; "Shakermaker" rips off "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing"; "Roll With It" sounds so like Status Quo that t-shirts were made with "Quoasis" on them (Noel even wore one.) Despite this, Noel Gallagher insists that his primary influences are "Ray Davies, John Lennon and Pete Townshend."

Video game

  • That One Level - 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.
