* {{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.'
* 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.
* 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", "Supersonic", "Wonderwall", "Acquiesce" and "Don't Look Back in Anger". The base is ''just that broken.''
* 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".
* EarWorm: 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.
* EpicRiff: More than enough to go around.
* FaceOfTheBand: The Gallagher brothers.
* FandomBerserkButton: Oasis fans don't like being reminded that Music/{{Blur}}'s "Country House" beat out "Roll With It" for the top spot on the UK Singles Chart.
* FandomRivalry: With Music/{{Blur}}.
* 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 (Noel ''has'' stated in an interview he did alongside Liam, that the name was Liam's idea). 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.
* [[FirstInstallmentWins First Two Albums Win]]: All Oasis fans with very few exceptions like ''Definitely Maybe'' and ''(What's the Story) Morning Glory?'', 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".
** Similarly, "Champagne Supernova" was not released as a single anywhere else but the United States, where its 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.
* 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.
* MemeticMutation: Anyway, here's Wonderwall.
* 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.
* 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.
** To be precise, the verse of "Lyla" sounds remarkably similar to "Street Fighting Man" by Music/TheRollingStones; "Shakermaker" rips off "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony)"; "Roll With It" sounds so like Music/StatusQuo that t-shirts were made with "Quoasis" on them (Noel even [[http://www.nme.com/news/blur/12608 wore one]].) Despite this, Noel Gallagher [[https://factorysunburst.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/noel-gallagher-and-influences/ insists]] that his primary influences are "[[Music/TheKinks Ray Davies]], [[Music/TheBeatles John Lennon]] and [[Music/TheWho Pete Townshend]]."
* 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!".
* 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?"

* 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.
