Absolute Radio 90s Reveals Oasis As The Greatest Band Of The 1990’s

The UK’s only 90s radio station Absolute Radio 90s has enlisted the help of its listeners to find the best song, album and year of the decade and with more than 50,000 votes cast, Oasis have been officially crowned number one.

Liam and Noel topped the polls, scooping title of best album and best song. Their second album What’s the Story (Morning Glory) beat Nirvana, Blur and REM to take the top spot, while Don’t Look Back in Anger pipped Common People, Bittersweet Symphony and Creep to win best track.

Absolute Radio’s Breakfast Show host Christian O’Connell said “Absolute Radio 90s listeners have spoken and Oasis have won the lot. Surely they have to get back together now?”

By voting for their favourites across different categories, listeners also chose 1996 as the definitive year of the decade - a very memorable year for the Oasis boys.

1996 was the year that 2.5 million people fought over 250,000 tickets for two Oasis shows at Knebworth, but for the Mancunians it's their two gigs at Maine Road - on April 27 and April 28 - that meant the most.

Not only did it see them raised from a theatre to a stadium band, but it also put them on stage in the football stadium that meant most to them - the home of the team they'd spent a lifetime supporting, Manchester City Football Club.

The infamous Maine Road gigs saw Liam re-join the band after one of many definitive arguments with brother Noel.
