Oasis top BBC chart of the most streamed albums of the ’90s

Oasis have topped a new BBC chart ranking the most streamed albums of the ’90s.

The Official Most Streamed Albums of the ’90s chart will be shared to celebrate National Album Day next week on October 14.

It will feature the Top 40 most-streamed albums from that decade, based on UK streams, as compiled by the Official Charts Company.

Oasis have earned the two top two slots in the chart with ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’ at number one and ‘Definitely Maybe’ at number two.

Speaking about getting the top spot, Noel Gallagher said: 

“I’m thrilled, but I wouldn’t say I was that surprised that (What’s The Story) Morning Glory has been voted the most streamed album of the 90s – I still do have my faith in the taste of people in this country.”

“I mean if you’ve got ‘Wonderwall’ and ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ on an album, you’re gonna be all right aren’t ya…”

“For certain people, it’ll be bringing back memories of their youth in the 90s and that brilliantly amazing decade we all lived through and then for the young people coming to it now, the songs deal with just the universal truths of life, and they will always be timeless…You know, of love and loss and heartbreak and friendship and the weather.”
