Say what you will about Oasis– they’re passe, they’re pompous, the lead singer has a unibrow– whatever. Noel Gallagher is the absolute best when it comes to quality quotes. The man despises EVERYBODY. His latest statment about Eminem and 50 Cent inspired me to go back and pull up some of Noel’s greatest hits. Check it out, starting with the brand new hip-hop diss.
On Eminem & 50: "I despise hip-hop. Loathe it. Eminem is an idiot and I find 50 Cent the most distasteful character I have ever crossed in my life. It’s so negative."
On System of a Down: "After I heard System of a Down, I thought, I’m actually alive to hear the s***tiest band ever. Of all the bands that have gone before, and all the bands that’ll be in the future, I was around when the worst was around."
On The Strokes: "There’s no bleeping excuse for not having your shoes match your jacket. The Strokes would do well to take that advice because the studded wristbands have already started to creep in."
On the lead singer of Franz Ferdinand: "He reminds me of f***ing Right Said Fred. You put on, I’m Too Sexy for My f***ing Shirt and I bet you any money it’s the same person. It’s the same f***ing person! He’s just gone on the Atkins diet and grown his hair!"
and, as an added bonus, the man even hates Christmas: "I hate Christmas, I hate the silly music on the radio, I hate the adverts, I don’t like mince pies and I hate turkey. I can’t be arsed getting involved. I was on the verge of saying to my daughter, ‘There is no Father Christmas’ – I’m looking forward to breaking the news in about two years."
