You know they tried to be successful in America but it failed.
If you´re an American maybe you can tell me why.

Plenty of us love Oasis.
However, we are not obsessed with Oasis.

It might have something to do with every time they come on tour, they don't stop in more than 3 or 4 cities in the US, its mostly canada.

I love oasis, definatly top 5 bands of all time
#9
I really don't like them, they sound cool, and don't look back in anger is one of my favorite songs ever, but all their other lyrics are really dumb. . . in my opinion. . .

People either love or hate Oasis, in my experience. I like some of their stuff. Sometimes they sound like a Beatles cover band, which is a bit annoying.
Hi, I'm Peter
#11
Probably the same reasons that I don't like them.

Liam's voice is as annoying as hell and the songs are extremely boring IMO.

I see, Wonderwall

In Europe you don´t listen to Wonderwall when you like Oasis.

Man, you have to admit that in America they´re not as famous as in Europe.
That´s not good and not bad. It´s just a fact.
And I wanted to know why.
Because in the beginning of their career they toured through USA with less success.

The same thing with Robbie Williams.
#13
Their earlier, good stuff is all about growing up and living in Nowhereton, Manchester. As such it's full of situations from middle-class England. I doubt many Americans can really relate to that.

Their later stuff is really quite ****, and bad music is bad music.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.
#14
Oasis is actually pretty popular in America. And yes, everybody knows Wonderwall. But that's not the only song Americans listen to.

I'm into their older stuff that they released in the 90's, but lately I haven't found much reason to pay attention to their new releases. Not my favorite stuff from them.
#15
I don´t like the new songs aswell, though "The importance of being idle" is very fun to sing.
Maybe only Noel should write songs as he did before but even his new stuff is bad, except from "Stop crying your heart out" "Idlers´dream" and "I´m just getting older" and a few others.
And Liam should not make a parody of himself. He overdoes his way to sing as if someone would take him off.
Nevertheless he´s still one of the most charismatic singers.
#16
They're not quite as big as over there, but I don't know of people who hate them really.

I think your just minorly pigeon-holing "Americans" in general. I'm not a fan of Oasis, but that doesn't mean millions of other people here aren't crazy about them. It's like me starting a thread asking Europeans to answer "Why isn't Incubus huge in Europe? They're huge in America, so why not Europe?" It's a silly question that really has no definate answer. Asking why a band from Country A isn't as famous in Country B is like asking Person A why they don't like oak trees more than Person B.

silly.

No, I don´t.
Someone already mentioned that it has to do with the classes, specially the working class.
And that´s it.
Oasis is (was) a life style in GB, people felt understood because Oasis come from the bottom of society as they do.
I think in America you don´t have this class differences and if than tell me cause that´s what I wanted to know.
Whether people in America listen to Oasis because they like the music or because they like the music and everything around.
And as far as I know it´s "just" because of the music. That´s why they´re not as known there.
But of cause Oasis also have huge fans in every other country.

Hmm... what an odd thing to say. You can't just say that Europeans don't listen to Wonderwall! It was an iconic track which is still very popular today. I would agree that they're not as popular in the states, I just don't think that they particularly appeal to Americans. Oasis came about in that retro pop era of the 90's, and much like Blur, they represent a change in the 'pop' industry at that time and as such are a very British band. Because of the way of the pop industry both in the UK and America at the time, Oasis didn't get a look in with America. They were never going to be successful over there because of what they symbolised within the British pop/rock movement.

Thank you. Rant over

When I listen to their 2nd album which doesn´t happen too often anymore I skip that track cause I had enough of it.
It´s like Beatles and "Yesterday" or Kinks and "Sunny Afternoon" or Metallica and "Nothing else matters"...
And I didn´t mean Europeans in general, I meant European fans.

When you´re on a concert this song is great and they can´t leave the stage without playing that song, but cd version...

oasis sing about british culture and brithish life which doesnt translate to american life

Plus, Oasis trash Americans anyway.

I love Oasis by the way, and the pwn you.

And move this goddamn thread to Alt/Indie or Modern Rock.

That´s what I wanted to hear from an American.
Do they get (like) the message behind the music?
Or just like the music
Or like the music but don´t like Oasis because of the different life style

ANYWAY I hate oasis, not becuase they are a rubbish badn they are dire human beings, You may not hear his babble in America, but the mans the Hitler of alternative rock.
Noone, apart from his bumchums Kasabian, Is spared, everyone from the beatles to Franz ferdninand. He criticises them all. He truly believes he is god, and he has enough snivelling bastards there to shower him in praise to up his ego. True definiton of Wanker.

I'm not in America, I'm in UK but I don't like Oasis mainly because they're repetative in their song structure and overplayed.
Take a look to the sky just before you die...it's the last time you will...

Some people like them, some people hate them.
I think they suck, but that's my opinion.
#36
Oasis are brilliant. I am not surprised with all the anti-liam posts. I mean, he is the only person that would only openly say that a band, for example coldplay< are "****e and boring" to the media. He has offended a lot of people. But I hat coldplay and I think Liam is one of the most rock n roll rock stars nowadays. Since when is looking and sounding a bit like the beatles a bad thing!?

and i took my penis off to wash it
but i couldnt figure out how to put it back on

No dynamics in their music. I don't believe the lyrics when they are being sung. It just doesn't strike a nerve with me.
