Quite possibly the most overrated band in history. People claim they were relevant during the 90s, but even then they weren't. Blur were the defining Britpop band for the first half of the 90s, and then Radiohead killed Britpop and became the defining band of the second half of the 90s. During the 00s Oasis merely become a parody of themselves, trying to rehash their overrated songs of the 90s to no avail.

Fundamentally, Oasis had no originality during their entire career, could never evolve and just copied other bands material (i.e. The Beatles) as they didn't have the talent to write or compose any good songs on their own.

Truthfully, the only reason they were popular was because of the large size of the working class. The working class saw the Gallagher brothers as idols, because they began in the working class before becoming rich, and inherently the Gallaghers had no actual talent like the rest of the working class. Therefore, the large working class supported Oasis in droves, and then worshipped them for managing to get so big, despite having no talent. It gave the working class hope that even they, despite having no talent, might someday leave their job working as a janitor, cleaning toilets or emptying dustbins, and become wealthy and famous.
No band is more overrated than Oasis and thank goodness they split up. Now they can stop creating crap music.

A Rock band resposible for a musical revolution in Britain during the mid 90's. One of Only a few bands in the world who write amazings rock songs and are still producing top albums 10 years later. All those of you who go on about their antics in the media are completely missing the point. They are legends
They practiced every day and every night on thier music when they were first starting out to make sure they were the best, thats a sign of people who care about their music

One of the best bands to come out ince the beatles (which is the best band ever) They released legendary songs on their 1995 album "(whats the story morning glory?" They were Wonderall, Champagne Supernova, and Dont look back in anger. Unfortunatly, those songs are all they ever were really popular for. People need to know that every cd theyve made is incredible and they have great stuff besides those 3 songs (not that they are bad) CHECK THEM OUT IF U LIKE SOME GOOD OLD RUCK AND RULL
Bill-Hey you know that band Oasis?

Bill -is that the only one youve heard?
