Oasis’ Noel Gallagher Slams Adele And Refuses She Had ‘Hit’ Songs

Former Oasis lead guitarist Noel Gallagher recently appeared on an episode of Matt Morgan’s podcast and made harsh comments when it was asked his thoughts on Adele, and her music. Gallagher said:

“Fuck off, fucking hell. Name one? They’re fucking shit. It’s fucking awful. It’s fucking Cilla Black. I find it and that whole thing offensive.”

Noel also implied once he retires from stages, he can collaborate with Adele:

“If I fall out of love with touring, I could see myself just sitting at home writing songs and sending them to my publishers. I might in the future. I’ll be saying, ‘Get Adele to sing that. Don’t call until she’s done the guide vocal.’”

This isn’t the first time The High Flying Birds frontman vocalised his displease towards pop artists. In 2021, he criticised both BRIT Awards and Little Mix after the group was awarded ‘Best British Group.’ Noel said:

“Little Mix, with the greatest respect, are not in the same league as Oasis. Not even in the same fucking sport. It’s a symptom of the music business chasing the numbers — and there not being any bands or songwriters in those bands. Record company guys constantly say, ‘Oh, these guys are the real deal’. And I think, ‘You wouldn’t know the real deal if it fucking bit you on the arse, mate.'”

Earlier this year, Gallagher also made negative comments about Matt Healy’s group 1975 after they were awarded ‘Best Rock Band,’ again by BRIT Awards:

“Oasis’ influence, I think, was for people to fucking start a band in the first place. I do meet loads of guys who say that and that’s great. There are a lot of them around, it’s just a pity guitar music has become marginalised. You’ve either got to be rock, or that fucking [The] 1975. At the BRITs, The 1975 won Best Rock or some fucking shit.”

“I was watching it with my kids, two teenage lads, thinking, ‘Is it me being a grumpy old man, or is this shit?’ They were both going, ‘Oh no, this is fucking shit’. The 1975, Best Rock Band? Someone needs to re-define that immediately, because that is… I don’t know what that is, but it’s certainly not fucking rock. Whatever rock is, that’s not it.”
