Noel Gallagher has claimed that God is likely to be a fan of Oasis.

Gallagher, who quit Oasis in 2009 and released his debut solo album in 2011, revealed his theory to The Sun. Explaining how he will convince St Peter to let him in when he reaches the pearly gates, Gallagher said: "I'd say, 'You've heard 'Don't Look Back In Anger'?', and they'd say, 'Of course'. I'd say, 'Look it's me, let us in. I can play you a tune. I robbed some stuff, I took a lot of drugs, but I'm all right'."

Meanwhile, it's bad news for Oasis fans hoping to see the band reform any time soon. Speaking during a recent interview with C4 comedian Alan Carr, Noel stated that the band won't get back together unless their financial situation dramatically worsens. "What would it take? It would take Liam or myself to be very skint, and I know for a fact that ain't gonna happen. So other than that, I can't see it."

The singer also spoke about how he will approach talking to his children about drugs, admitting that it would be rich for him to preach abstinence given his well-documented history with cigarettes and alcohol and more. Gallagher said he was "dreading" his children's teenage years as he's in no position to lecture them, so would instead say, "Everything in moderation, lads. And just remember: you will never be as cool as your dad. Remember that."

    I'm sure this was said extremely seriously and was very worth making a whole article about.
    Can't you guys take a joke? If you hear the actual interviews, he is joking most of the time.
    I'm really surprised that people still think that he's being serious most of the time, especially considering he's been around for, I dunno, 20 years. EDIT: I like Noel for not choosing Manchester United.
    "Noel Gallagher has claimed that God is likely to be a fan of Oasis." This is why I hate you.
    Are you all Brits such a pricks?! This one is an idiot.And I dont care about his song-writing skills.
    Are all you Americans so fat?!
    No. Do all British people have gross teeth? And why is it that you guys are always second place? Rock n roll started here. Same with punk rock. And let's not forget how we bailed you out in WWII. USA has it's problems but Jesus Christ, you and your royal family can **** off.
    MURIKA. Considering your obvious lack of intelligence I'm kinda surprised you realize that punk, or at least a lot of proto-punk (would probably be more accurate) came from the US. Of course quality is probably something you should worry about more than who did what first. You missed the point of Jordo's response. It shows how silly generalizations are. And we bailed England out in WWII? Do you not realize they were holding their own after everyone else over there had pretty much fallen? Your post was awful and you should feel awful.
    Yeah, it's not as if you came from Britain or anything. Not as if we have spawned possibly the biggest and most influential bands of all time. (Beatles, Stones, The Who, Led Zep, Black Sabbath) With a lot more still to come.
    Let's see, would we rather have the Royal Family, or the Westboro baptist Church. Hmmmmm. We'll stick with the Royals thanks.
    I said it sarcastically, taking the piss out of the Elderer but I should have guessed you wouldn't get that with your primitive sense of comedy.
    If god was an oasis fan he'd have cheered those knobjockeys up by giving city more success , instead we have Balotelli vs Mancini , the sitcom . Proves Noel is thick if he really reckons that God exists , dumb**** .
    Yeah well Satan thinks you suck and we all know he has better taste in music.
    And one time he said Oasis would get as Big as the Beatles. Dude, get over yourself, you're just embarrassing. *facepalm*
