Oasis vs. Blur
Fightin' Words: "I hate that Alex and Damon. I hope they catch AIDS and die." (Oasis' Noel Gallagher)
Class warfare was the underlying motive behind the mid-'90s scrum between the working-class Gallagher brothers and the art-damaged Damon Albarn and co. Ironically, it was Noel who accused Albarn of slovenliness, saying he "looks like a dustbin man these days." When Albarn's side project, Gorillaz, debuted, Liam dismissed it as "3-year-olds' music." Albarn's rebuttal? At one point he chided the Gallaghers for being featured in lightweight celebrity magazines. Ouch!
UPDATE: In Sept. 2007, Liam called a truce. "I don't mind Blur," he told Mojo, "I'm over [the rivalry]. It was a laugh man, that's what you do when you're young."
