I love that it's all speculation, but  subby stated it as fact.

I'll believe it when Noel says it's happening.

Gen X explain yourselves, is it just to watch the trainwreck? They've got like 2-3 hits.

They were one of the only new groups in that time period not from Seattle, and that's all I got.

Yeah, but Wonderwall is among the best songs of the 90s.

Also - I couldn't care less about this. It'd be about as exciting as Slash and Axl reuniting.

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

Wrong British band with a pair of cantankerous brothers.

It's definitely among the most popular.

If you have another definition of "best", I'd like to hear it. Because when it comes to music, nothing is more subjective, so popularity is really the only metric that has any weight.

/Yes, I know what this implies

Then you were better off just calling it one of the most popular of the 90s, at least amongst those that listen to radio friendly pop pock. But by using the metric of popularity as a guage of "best" you could also call songs like "Who Let the Dogs Out", Cher's "Believe", Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca" or Destiny's Child's "Bills Bills Bills" as best songs of the 90s.

I believe, and somebody will surely correct me should I need it, that the British grammar calls for referring to any singular that still implies a plurality (such as any type of group) in the plural sense.


Grammarians on the other side of the pond, where you at?

I was lucky enough to see them on their first American tour, the one that was cancelled halfway through when the brothers got into a fight. It was great. The encore was a hellaciously rocking version of I Am The Walrus. On the other side, I never got to see Blur. Parklife is awesome.

I always find this statement about Oasis hilarious.

They were huge in the UK.  Crazy huge.  Like, biggest rock band of the 90s huge.

Any story about them gets greeted by a whole lot of "wait, them?  Did they even release more than one album?" comments on Fark, which is pretty silly.

I cannot think of a single band that I hate more than these whiny idiots. Within half a second of hearing them on the radio, I'm already pushing buttons, praying for the sweet, sweet relief of a commercial.

I can only hope they don't make any new "music."

That would be Champagne Supernova.

They had a few good songs.  Obviously never lived up to their hype and simply became annoying over time.  Not uncommon.

You can have some attitude, but you have to have more talent than attitude.  There are exceptions of course.

I believe both are acceptable.  Just us in the states don't use it that way so it looks/sounds weird.

I agree with the above statement so wholeheartedly that I feel like if I agreed with it any more, I would just become the statement, which would just be weird.  Someone recently called me out for hating a lot of bands and singers.  After giving that some thought, i realized that was absolutely true.  Being at the top of my list of bands and/or singers I despise is no easy feat, but Oasis has that distinction.  To each their own.  Personally, I would like to turn to Fark one day and read a story about how the Gallagher brothers were held down with the soiled undergarments of incontinent truck drivers rubbed into their faces for hours at a time while airhorns blasted and rotten pumpkins fell on them.

The UK has produced some great rock over the years, so what the hell happened in the 90s? I guess they started focusing on electronic music. Oasis is corny.
 
2014-04-25 03:48:38 PM
What's the point (besides both of them are probably broke)? Both of their new bands were just Oasis with different names.

No. Led Zepplin, Queen, The Cure, Motorhead, Ozzy/Black Sabbath, Dire Straits, Judas Priest, Pink Floyd, and Iron Maiden are all much further ahead in that line than farking Oasis. Hell even Coldplay is further up that line than Oasis is.

I think it's because in America, Oasis wasn't nearly as big even if they were otherwise popular. They also didn't have a fawning press over here, so after Be Here Now came out the entirety of the US was of the mind of "Eh, enough of this, pls." and they mostly disappeared as far as the American public is concerned (though a quick wikipedia check shows they had continued to sell fairly well here, but I can guarantee that most people couldn't name a single track after Don't Look Back in Anger)

Y'know, being as I lived through the late '80's LA hard rock era (Ratt, etc..), if I hear another pinch-harmonic guitar riff again it will be too soon. JMHO, not saying these guys are bad at what they do. For me, straight up rock is more what the Supersuckers, Airbourne, etc... do
