    Greatest Rock/Metal Band ROUND 1 MATCH 8

    Oasis

    Quote Originally Posted by Wiki
    Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. Originally known as "The Rain", the group was formed by Liam Gallagher (vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (guitar and vocals). Oasis have sold over 50 million records worldwide,[1] have had eight UK number-one singles and have collected 15 NME Awards, 5 Brit Awards, 9 Q awards and 4 MTV Europe awards. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by guitarist Gem Archer and bassist Andy Bell, as well as unofficial drummer Chris Sharrock.

    The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White in the midst of rivalry with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling disputes and wild lifestyles. At the height of their fame, Oasis released their third album, Be Here Now (1997), which was the fastest-selling album in UK chart history. The band lost two long-time members Paul McGuigan and Paul Arthurs between recording and releasing Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) and Heathen Chemistry (2002) and went on to record Don't Believe the Truth (2005) and Dig Out Your Soul (2008).

    lol @ nubs not knowing Diamond Head.

    You should have put "Am I Evil?" up as a song. Basically they are one of the best heavy metal bands ever, and played a large part in bands such as Megadeth, and particularly Metallica becoming who they are today.

    Oasis ftw though

    Oh, so it is lol I just saw Lightning To The Nations and presumed it was the song and not the album. My bad.

    Even so, Diamond Head are awesome. Nick Tart has one of the best voices I have ever heard. It's a pity they didn't get more commercial success.

    Why isn't it obvious that besides that I still have no idea who they are cos I have never listened to them or heard of them. That would be why I asked.

    Please show me where else I have asked that. I knew who UFO were, I merely asked for what they have done.
