    The Beatles Suck!! I hate em... I hate everything about em...

    They're all cheesy trash... To me, all their songs sound the same...!!

    :eek::eek::eek: I don't think you've listened to many Beatles songs then????
    Certainly there is a big difference between their first albums, and the work they did later...

    But didn't Oasis refer to The Beatles as their great examples?

    (excuse me if I'm again interfering in a discussion on a topic that I don't really know very much about)

    No they said they were better than the Beatles... In my opinion, very true!!

    They even covered The Walrus to prove it!!

    No Joy Division ?

    Thought about including Joy Division... But I didnt so...

    Besides, they dont come anywhere near Oasis or the BeeGees...

    Don't even know half of these, so plumped for Oasis since at least I can name a few of their songs (probably the same one five times as they all sound the same)... since this probably means they're played more on the particular tv and radio stations I listen to, I'm assuming they're more like what I'd listen to than the others... ;)

    My bro's going with a mate.... Im REALLY jealous... Reckon I'll have to get a tout ticket...

    Not sure what the stadiums like for bands?? I didnt see the Chilli's.... However I know this sounds stupid, but I recommend you go to the toilet before you go in...

    The stadium was built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, I am told it was supposed to have a Capacity of 38,000. However the ground was expanded and now has seating for 48,000. Although they've installed extra toilets the extra 10,000 people all queing for a pee still aint good...

    The Charlatans followed by The Stone Roses............Oasis aren't a patch on either of them.
