Oasis. giving them shit for being pricks is like giving Bono shit for being a humanitarian. also, they fuckin rock the shit. of course it comes down to a matter of personal preference but nobody was as big as Oasis back in the 90s.

Blur.

The Gallaghers were the rubbish in modern life, circa 1995. I thought that Andy Bell might redeem them a few years ago. Then I heard Tarantula recently for the first time. Now I'm grasping to remember redeeming qualities of Ride.

For whatever reason, I never listened to anything after The Great Escape. I need to catch up on that material. Never listened to the Verve.



Unstoppable.

Wow, there's some nice moral equivalence. Did the Gallaghers get nominated for the Nobel Prick Prize?

I think this beats your wireless mic argument.

What if you give them shit for their music and for being pricks?

Also, how the fuck does that have anything to do with Bono?

In light of your recent defense of Van Halen, I'm not really sure that I can take this claim seriously.

well, while Oasis were thee bigger Brit band really, I thought only very few of their songs were good. I mean, like, three songs.

so I aim to say I preferred Blur and Verve, and pretty much Verve over Blur.

The only good thing that ever came from Oasis is that Wonderwall drops panties when played on an acoustic guitar. That's the only good thing, and if anyone tells you different, they're liars.
