20 Years Later, Liam Gallagher Is Still Fighting The Britpop War – By Himself

By Holly Brockwell on at

Children of the nineties will fondly remember the all-consuming war between fans of rival bands Blur and Oasis. It was the iPhone vs Android of its time: you had to be on one side or the other, there was no admitting to liking both (although many people did, in secret.)

20 years later, the rivalries have long since been buried: except in Liam Gallagher's mind. He's vexed because Damon Albarn of Blur and his brother Noel Gallagher have publicly buried the ancient hatchet and collaborated on the new Gorillaz album. Unsurprisingly, this has not gone down well with Liam, who comes across on Twitter like that guy in the pub that tries to fight his own shadow.

First, he complained that the collab is 'no Dancing In The Street' (not a song we'd have expected Liam to like, honestly), and referred to his brother as "the creepy one out of Oasis":

Followed by calling him "a massive girl," which many of the replies pointed out isn't as much of an insult as he seems to think:

Is Liam living in his own world? Does he actually believe any of the stuff he tweets? Is it all just a stage-managed act to keep his name in the news?

You tell us, Liam. You always do.
