Oasis were actually decent though

First album and singles, and what’s the story is good but has some shite, and from there 5/6 decent tracks. Still pretty great tho

No they weren’t. They were shite. Probably the most infuriatingly overrated British band ever

This mostly came about from bedwetters saying they were shite, while they’re actually pretty good. Importance of being idle is genuinely a great song, better than fucking p4k core post conde nast

They really knew how to rip off a classic rock song.

I’d say they were somewhere between great and shit. closer to great, though…let’s say pretty damn good

nb - I’m talking specifically about their debut album…which at the time, was a revelation. looking back sans rose-tinted glasses it still stands up as a really good album.

They’re a beginner’s-level band.

Great place to start if you’re not into music.

I can’t actually remember what Definitely Maybe sounds like.

Definitely Maybe im not sure I would call it a revelation in retrospect. Maybe it was more popular but it hardly original. Most of it is reverb drenched riff based tracks. They seem to be hugely influenced by a lot of 60s pop rock + The Stones Roses. Quite a lot of The La’s in there as well.

i’ve come round to the idea that definitely maybe is actually really good

Oasis were great guys. Peak proper haircut music.

they sound like being 18 and feeling like anything was possible, they have more good songs than most bands i like

still listen to them fairly often, so much live footage of them from the mid 90’s is properly brilliant
