Oasis or Coldplay?

Just curious - people seem to like one or the other.
I'm a Coldplay person. I don't mind Oasis, but i've always found them extremely overrated.

I find Oasis boring. With Coldplay, I love the chilling and beautiful harmonies. I guess a lot of people would disagree, but I don't think this one is even close.

It's close but I have to go with Oasis because I'm familiar with more of their work. I like Coldplay but their songs are a bit boring sometimes.

Coldplay didn't write Definitely Maybe, Morning Glory, they don't have the best b-sides ever, or the best frontman of the last 25 years.


They're U2-lite.

Coldplay have more soul in their collective little toe than Oasis have ever had, or ever will have, as far as I'm concerned... and that's coming from someone who does quite like Oasis.

I really liked Definitely Maybe, and a fair bit of What's the Story. I liked the spirit in their early stuff, and still do. Nonetheless, I don't see how Noel, at the height of fame, could write lyrics like:

She's got a sister
and God only knows how I missed her
and on the palm of her hand is a blister.

... and still claim to be part of the "best band in the world". Don't think so, Noelyboy. It was hilarious then and is still funny now.

Neither Liam, Noel nor Chris M have half the charisma that Bono has - I find them boring front men compared to B.

They're both a bit overrated.

With that, I have some of both of their music.

i find coldplay boring but i can understand why people enjoy their music. as for oasis, liam's voice is so whiny it drives me up the wall.

i think they're both a bit overrated.

that's one of the weirdest polls I've seen around.

"Coming soon, who's better: Bob Marley or Led Zeppelin?"


I voted Coldplay by the way, though I'd say both are top of their respective (sub-)genres.

why pick one if you can enjoy both of them? And their music it's not the same style, they work different depending on your mood...

But Noel's the man, I must say...

Well, they're both derivative British bands.

And Oasis wins by quite a bit until Chris Martin and Co. pull a "Live Forever," "Champagne Supernova," or "The Masterplan" out of their bums.
