 Noel Gallagher has spoken about the “massive” impact Oasis had on music during their mid-’90s imperial phase.
“I don’t think anyone will ever be able to fully explain to people who are maybe teenagers now what a colossal thing Oasis was in the lives of anybody who gave a shit about music,” Gallagher said. “It was massive.”

He added: “There’s big things in music now. I do festivals all over the world and there are big bands. Fucking Oasis was a 100 times bigger than all of them put together, do you know what I mean? Particularly in England. You couldn’t accurately describe it to anyone [now].”
