never heard of ANY of those.

Everyone rips off everyone. Thats where people get influences from but Oasis didnt completely rip of beatles. They just really influenced them.

Green day just uses the same power chords over and over and over and over again. Oasis may use chords but they actually have good melodic solos. their song writing rips green day's.

Liver forever, Lyla, supersonic, slide away are all pretty well known. Green day's music takes NO TALENT. The guy cant sing, you cant hear the bass at all, the guitar substance sux and the drummer plays the same **** on wake me up and blvd.

Definetly Maybe is probably one of the best selling albums of all time as well as morning glory. Oasis has been around since 1994 and champagne supernova and wonderwall were on their 1995 album. Oasis put out their most recent in 2005. Each of their singles they have put out have hit #1 or #2 in the UK charts.

In 2005, the guiness book of world records declared Oasis the "most successful act of the last decade in the UK."

Be Here Now was the fastest selling album in chart history. Oasis sold half a million on the first day

Also i will add OAsis' debut album was the fastest selling debut album at the time in the UK.

This just shows the different music tastes in UK and USA.

This is the last time I will ever respond to anything you say, maggot. You're getting blocked. Anyways, here goes:

USA >>>> UK

You live in America. Why is that? You want to go to aTm. Why? If the UK is so great, why didnt you just fcukin stay there? If you like soccer more than basketball, then why are you wasting all our time posting nonsense and annoying me on ISH? This is a BASKETBALL forum...a sport you know nothing about. Goodbye chump, welcome to the ignore list.

Noel and Liam have freely admitted that they've copied off the Beatles at times.

Punk isn't really about solos. Green Day's success comes from their rhythm section and pop hooks.

In the UK, they're very well known. In the US, they're only really known to Oasis fans. There are a lot of people who say they're fans, but have only heard Wonderwall and Chapagne Supernova.

Meh. I've heard the same thing said for Oasis. When a band writes pop songs like Green Day and Oasis, talent is not the focus. Both bands are talented at writing good songs.

Wake Me Up and Boulevard are not their best songs. That's like judging Oasis without ever hearing Definitely Maybe.

Dookie has sold many more copies due to the difference in size between the US and UK markets.

Greenday has catchy tunes, and that's all you need to be well known. Personally, there's something I don't like about them. Maybe it's the fact there like like 40 year-olds, yet they dress up like emo kids - maybe that's it.

Below are some of my favorite rock/punk/alternative bands:

Nirvana
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Korn
Blink 182
Green Day
Rolling Stones
Guns N' Roses
Sum 41
The All American Rejects
The Strokes
Thursday
Yellowcard
Pink Floyd
