Oasis is like an orgasm for your ears. Unarguably one of the greatest bands of all time.
Every one of Oasis's many songs is a perfect example of how awesome they are...

One of the most amazing bands of all time, even excluding classics such as Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger and Champagne Supernova. Has the best debut album ever in Definitely Maybe. This band also undisputedly has the best B-side collection of any band, ever, at any time. Publicized in "battle of Britpop" with the band Blur. The Gallagher Bros. have been known to cause quite a stir in public, causing some controversy in people who have no sense of humour. Most people however find them entertaining. Disregarding all of this, it does not change the amazingly catchy tunes Noel has churned out over the years, such as: Cloudburst, Strange Things, Sad Song, Step Out, and I Will Believe. And all of these songs listed are from their B-sides collection, not even delving into their main stuff.
Idiot: I think Blur is better than Oasis.
Me: If you think that "girls who like boys who like girls who like boys" is better than "maybe i just don't believe, maybe you're the same as me, we see things they'll never see, you and I are gonna Live Forever" then you are retarded.
Idiot: Ok but Oasis had some pretty half assed tunes with poor lyrics too.
Me: You mean like Digsy's Dinner or Bonehead's Bank Holiday? Those are some of the catchiest pieces of music ever.
Idiot: But Noel insulted Phil Collins!
Me: Didn't he divorce his wife by fax?
Idiot: Yeah but...ok, point taken.

The best band of all time. All original members bar the Gallaghers have left, but oh well.
'Supersonic' is the best song ever written.

A beautiful drink. It's a non carbonated drink and is a product of The Coca Cola Company. Always on shelves around UK. Mostly seen as an alternative to water.
Cool person:Lunch break. Let's go down to Tesco and get some Oasis.
Nerd: Wha?
Cool person: Its an awesome drink, you tard.
Nerd: Im gettin some water.
Cool person: What the fuck? You need to be killed. Water is shit up to Oasis.

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.
