A Timeline of the Decades-Long Beef Between Oasis’ Noel + Liam Gallagher
Oh brother! Sibling rivalry can be tough, as exemplified by brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher of '90s and '00s hitmaking band Oasis. Though the likely bickered well before hitting the spotlight, their internal and sometimes external squabbles made headlines pretty much throughout their run as a band, and those they're no longer in a group together, the jabs may have only intensified through the use of social media.
When they weren't bickering with each other, the brothers often had a few choice words for some of their peers, but it was their struggle with one another that ultimately split Oasis. Calls for a reunion have often been dismissed by non-response or met with a counter argument from Noel Gallagher.
During their heyday, the numbers were staggering. Oasis' (What's the Story) Morning Glory? became one of the biggest selling albums of all-time, topping all other '90s entries in the U.K. and becoming the country's fifth best-selling album ever. The group held the record for the biggest audience ever with two sold-out nights of 125,000 people at Knebworth. They had three platinum albums in the U.S., won a wealth of NME, Brit, MTV Europe and Q awards and had a pair of Grammy nominations. But throughout that success was some infighting that led to their downfall.
So what was their beef all about? While there are numerous jabs over the years, we hit some of the highlights of the divide between Oasis' Noel and Liam Gallagher in the gallery below.
