Oasis Singer Noel Gallagher Criticizes Harry Styles' Music

Oasis Singer Noel Gallagher Criticizes Harry Styles' Music

It’s safe to say Noel Gallagher is not a big Harry Styles fan.

The 50-year-old Oasis guitarist recently criticized Harry‘s music during an interview with Absolute Radio.

“You’re not telling me Harry Styles is currently sat in his room somewhere writing a song,” he said. “With any joy, he’ll be surrounded by a lot of 17-year-old girls, do you know what I mean? F-cking getting coke blown up his assh-le, hopefully. But I can assure you, he doesn’t got an acoustic guitar out trying to write a middle-eight for someone. You know what I mean?”

Harry is credited as a writer on all 10 tracks off his debut solo album.

“Because people of my age have let themselves go, you know, and they’re kinda fat, balding idiots with fading talent, too,” Noel continued. “They kind of sit in their garage and write sh*t like ‘Sign Of The Times’ for Harry Styles. Do you know what I mean? Which, quite frankly, my cat could’ve written it in about 10 minutes.”

“I don’t mind the song,” he backtracked. “My wife was falling over herself. ‘Have you heard Harry Styles‘ new song?! It’s like Prince!’ And I was like, ‘I can f-cking assure you, without even hearing it, I can assure you it’s not like Prince.’”

    Oasis is always coming out with these pretentious comments to stay relevant. I’m no Harry Styles fan but goodness Oasis, don’t be pissed you haven’t had a good song since the 90′s MAYBE early 2000′s. Oasis had some good hits but I can’t tell you the last time I’ve heard them on the radio or someone purposely ask to hear them. Let it go, ya bitter man

  • MFGBali

    They disbanded 2009, so of course you haven’t heard a good new Oasis song.

    Liam and Noel Gallagher have always been like that, that’s just the way they are.

  • Sarai123

    He’s right to a point but at least Harry is a nice lad. Can’t say the say about Noel. He’s a piece of sh*t.

    Sounds jaded but i like the unfiltered cander

    When your young, combative and grumpy, it’s sexy and rebellious. When your old, combative and grumpy, you are just an old man that’s mad at the world because you are no longer young.
    Noel needs to find a new way to get attention.

  • Jamie

    Was he the one that criticized Adele awhile back?

    Gallagher is a vile man, has been for decades. I don’t know HS’s music. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard one of his songs. If I did it was by accident and I probably didn’t know it was him. I am not lying when I say I didn’t realize what Taylor Swift sounds like (singing) until about 18 months ago. But I don’t have to know the kid’s music to know that was an uncalled-for, filthy, and vile thing to say about someone who is just trying to do what he loves and which other people enjoy. HS is harming no one that I’m aware of. But Gallagher is very harmful.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    They’re horrible people.

  • Gina

    Harry has multiple people writing the songs with him, so he’s definitely not some songwriting genius. But with that said, why does Noel always have to talk sh*t?

  • Marianne

    He wrote the lyrics, not the actual music.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    Of course Harry Styles didn’t write his music, he can’t write music! He’s a singer and that’s it. A decent but not amazing singer. But yeah his single sucks bad. It’s a Beatles/Oasis rip off. Noel can suck it tho. He’s a washed up has been.

  • Gina

    Well, he didn’t write all the lyrics by himself, but that’s ok.

    Oh Noel, once a wanker always a wanker.

  • http://www.thesupernaughts.com/ ScottColbert

    Jeffrey Dahmer always ate people, that’s just the way he was. It’s not an excuse in either case.

  • Eyes Wide Open

    Noel is a has-been troll who’s never had anything nice to say about anyone. I used to like the music of Oasis, but I can’t stand Noel, so I tossed their cds and haven’t looked back. Fuck him, tired has-been.

  • Eyes Wide Open

    So people on here were actually with Harry’s team when the songs were written? I don’t know his music, but I know people his age who are very accomplished songwriters.

  • MFGBali

    I didn’t say it was okay – I actually feel bad for Harry because he seems to be proud of his music – but the thing is, they have always been rude arrogant assholes, that will never change.

  • MFGBali

    Yeah, they’re not the nicest people in the music industry.

  • MFGBali

    Yeah, they’re not the nicest people in the music industry.

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    Noel Gallagher is just a grumpy old man who hasn’t been relevant since Oasis had that one good song in the 90′s.

  • SquidBillie

    Isn’t Gallagher known for being the most miserable person on the planet? They were vile when Oasis was actually relevant.

  • Visitor

    Harry needs to stop trying to be Mick Jagger.

  • Rosalie

    Noel & his brother have always been assholes. This behavior is nothing new for him.

  • beaner

    he’s a deuche, always been a deuche, his music has always sucked, why does he have to attack other artists? because he’s a deuche

  • HG

    Everyone has different opinions in regards to “good” music and what they like, but good God. Why does this guy always have to belittle everyone else? The only time he’s in the news is when he’s causing drama. If Noel is such a true and talented artist, why won’t he just release his own music and let it speak for itself rather than try to delegitimize every other successful artist out there?

  • Joher

    He sounds bitter and I’m not even a Harry Styles’ groupie.

  • Leigh

    I hope he never stops talking shit, because he’s highly entertaining. Whenever he goes on a tangent, I always get a laugh at least.

  • Lily

    Same. Noel is funnier than several people who do comedy for a living and I hope he never stops being a grouchy old coot because his quotes always make me laugh.

  • Lily

    It’s rather amusing to watch people clutch their pearls over Noel Gallagher in here, or more accurately, clutch their pearls because Noel Gallagher was his grumpy self and dared to question an ex-boyband member’s songwriting involvement in his album.

  • Amber

    Was anyone expecting him to have something nice to say? Surely we all know better by now.

  • Publius

    Is that one good song ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger?’

    He sounds no different then when he was 20. And he has a fucking point. All you losers cry and whine about how music today sucks ass, well, he is pointing out exactly WHY music today sucks. ‘Musicians’ these days don’t write shite, they just play and sing it.

  • Riza

    So sad to see an old ” has been guy” ranting his lungs out to a kid! Well whatever he says can’t changed the fact that Harry’s album debuted as no.1 in the chart! So take this “L” asshole!

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    No, it was their cover of “I Am The Walrus” by the Beatles in ’98.

  • Lauri Mokiao-Willett

    Sorry you’re a bitter old has been.

  • Sam Atkinson

    I love his honesty

  • matt headley

    And by “wrote” you mean changed one word so he could legally be given a writing credit. And that word was whispered in his ear.

  • matt headley

    That “word mashup” reminds me of the “Blinded by the light” deuce/douche misheard lyric.

  • Buttplug9000

    As soon as I heard Harry Styles, a child, utter the words “sign of the times” I knew it was obviously a pretentious song. But I still wasn’t prepared for the amount of classic pop motifs his production team decided to cram into it, to add a sense of some kind of timeless significance to his fashionable 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 wheezy hip singing. It’s the perfect song to dupe someone without a developed critical mind or sense of taste into thinking this young man is wise, older than his years, worth listening to. It’s anti-truth, anti-art. It’s like using hundreds of DaVincis, Picassos etc. arranged into a mosaic so that from a distance they form an image of Harry Styles’ posing as Rodin’s “The Thinker”. A fucking disgusting song. Not his fault but his producers should be fucking ashamed of themselves.
