That's some bad hat, Harry...
 
2014-02-07 10:01:28 AM  
yeah, no.  we are done with oasis.

Yeah, how about no. Does no work for you? There's enough over rated egomaniacal nutjobs calling themselves rockstars despite barely playing rock in the world today. We don't need to resurrect any old ones.

All kidding aside, wasn't Oasis a spectacular band?  So much of today's music is pretty much garbage by comparison why wouldn't we welcome them back? Did they already try this and fail a years ago and I missed it?

(What's the Story) Morning Glory? from 95 sold very well (over 22 million copies)......that's more than Madonna's Like a Virgin, Britney's Oops...., Def Leppard's Hysteria, Phil's No Jacket Required, so I certainly wouldn't say no one

/wasn't trolling, genuinely liked them back then.  One of the few that doesn't get flipped immediately when I hear them on the radio...

meh, those sales were all based on the media telling people what to like.

no one has oasis in their permanent rotation.

Michael Shersby:  How can.. the Prime minister.. support a law.. that makes it illegal for people.. who.. [ gets to the real point he's been fidgeting with ] ..What I'm trying to say is..  Oasis rules!

Betty Boothroyd:  Mr. Shersby!! You've been warned  seven times this month to  stop bringing up Oasis!

Michael Shersby: But is  not Oasis the  greatest British band since the Beatles? Can we  not vote on  this?!

Betty Boothroyd: Enough! Enough!! No votes will be taken on the subject of Oasis!

Wonderwall was a good listen, but it's hard to get past the bands douchiness.

I'll have you know that NME's entire writing staff loves them!

and are probably the only ones who still give a shiat about Oasis.

It couldn't be that maybe people like something you don't like. Nah! They are drones just following marching orders. I am going to listen to What's the story....okay okay. I'm not. But I still love Champagne Supernova.

Spectacularly huge and popular maybe, but to me they just made bland pub rock. Noel Gallagher is a good pop songwriter, I'll give him that.

The fact NME helped manufacture a rivalry between them and Blur was idiotic. There wasn't much more to Oasis really besids, "hey, we're gritty blue-collar guys who want to be rock stars", while Blur's entry into the mainstream was writing focused, satirical commentary on a post-Thatcher England. Even if you think Blur sucks, you have to admit that intellectually at least, they were on a different wavelength.

/I could probably say the same for Pulp, Suede, etc.

The whole Blur vs Oasis thing was very silly. Listening to Oasis today, I think "These are good songs but for fark's sake, could Liam not tried so hard to be John Lennon?" "Look at my Lennon glasses, look at me try to tilt my head and make Lennon expressions, listen to me try to sound just like Lennon, look at me using Lennon sounding riffs and phrases." It's distracting. Then when he starts to get over Lennon, he goes and gets a Paul Weller haircut and get up. As wonderful as he is musically, one of the last people whose haircut I would copy would be Paul Weller's. It's beyond mod and into some strange elf pixie hairstylist dream.

Sorry, Coldplay is already occupying the bland pop with pretentious d-bag frontman category.

I absolutely despise Oasis, and the Gallagher brothers are some seriously hateful, dysfunctional people, but "Wonderwall," "Don't Look Back In Anger," and "Cigarettes and Alcohol" are three truly amazing songs.  Derivative?  Simplistic?  Predictable?  Sure.  But still beautiful, and amazing.  "Wonderwall" in particular is, without asterisk, the greatest rock song ever written.  Doesn't matter how you perform it.

anything that can be described as derivative, simplistic and predictable can NOT also be called amazing.

Just sharin'

Well your user name is right at least. For it to be the best rock song ever written it would, in fact, need to first be a rock song. That shiat is pop music.

But, didn't they come out of an impoverished fatherless childhood to give millions of fellow drunken Brits hope? Yep, that was too long ago already.
