Oasis’ Gallagher brothers have been at each others throats their entire careers, including: physical fights, Liam refusing to perform at Oasis’ MTV Unplugged performance, and many other trainwrecks.  The feud though escalated in the press following Oasis’ 2009 split, before dissipating this year.  Below see the Gallaghers’ best insults from the band’s later years, and post break up.

Noel Gallagher (The Guardian 2005):

“[Liam] was talking in a Scouse accent for three days. He told me I should refer to him as John [Lennon] and I was like, ‘I just prefer ‘cunt’, man.”

Noel Gallagher (Q 2006):

“[Liam]’s gone to the zoo. The monkeys are bringing their kids to go and have a look at him.”

Noel Gallagher (Herald Sun 2008):

“I read these interviews with [Liam] and I don’t know who the guy is who’s in these interviews, he seems really cool, because the guy I’ve been in a band with for the last 18 years is a fucking knobhead.”

Liam Gallagher (NME 2008):

“I’m a better singer than [Noel].  I’m the man, man.”

Noel Gallagher (ABS 2009):

“I am eternally spring, but my brother Liam is like the blackest winter ever.”

Noel Gallagher (Q 2009):

“[Liam]’s rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy. He’s the angriest man you’ll ever meet. He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup.”

Liam Gallagher (NME 2009):

“It takes more than blood to be my brother”, and declaring: “He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him.”

Liam Gallagher (Daily Star, 2011):

“The people that go: ‘Oh, Beady Eye is not Oasis,’ well, Noel’s music ain’t Oasis either,” he said. “It might remind you of it but there’s something missing – fucking me.”

Liam Gallagher (Q 2011):

“Listen, [Noel]‘s a mouthy fuck too. He said we had a year to come up with a band name and came up with Beady Eye. He had three and came up with the High Flying Turds. I don’t know who dressed him but he looks like something out of Westlife.”

Liam Gallagher (The Guardian 2011):

”That’s the thing that makes me want to throw up. I just look at him now and think, ‘You’re a fucking fake’.”

Noel Gallagher (Press Conference 2011):

“On the way out [of the dressing room in 2009, Liam] picked up a plum and he threw it across the dressing room and it smashed against the wall. Part of me wishes it did end like that, that would have been a great headline.  Then he kind of leaves, he goes out the dressing room, for whatever reason he went to his own dressing room and he came back with a guitar and he started wielding it like an axe and I’m not fucking kidding. And I’m making light of it because it’s kind of what I do, but it was a real unnecessary violent act, and he’s swinging this guitar around, he nearly took my face off with it.”

Liam Gallagher (Twitter 2011):

“[In respond to press conference quote] SHITBAG!”

Liam Gallagher (Daily Mail 2011):

“I’m quite prepared to go head to toe (sic) verbally, physically, musically, mentally with Noel Gallagher.”

Liam Gallagher (Lawsuit Statement 2011):

“I am used to being called all sort of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him, but what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.” He added, “This is not about money, all I want is a full apology from Noel.”

Noel Gallagher (NME 2012):

“[I wouldn't reunite Oasis], not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it.”

Noel Gallagher (BBC6 2012):

“[Liam]‘s like a squeaky toy that swears a lot… in a blazer.”

Liam Gallagher (Q 2013):

“Fuck Oasis as far as I’m concerned and fuck Noel Gallagher. The thought of going onstage with that fucking idiot and hanging out with his daft mates, the pretend drug addicts and all his snobs from Sloane Street. Fuck that, not interested, mate.”

Liam Gallagher (NME 2013):

“If you want to play fucking Oasis songs put the band back together and stop being a fucking gobshite.”

Liam Gallagher (Clash Music 2013):

“The fuckin’ geezer that’s in the band? I fuckin’ absolutely fuckin’ despise [Noel when he's in the band]. And I guess he feels the same way. But if you speak to him, he’ll probably go: ‘Yeah, I know; I hate both the cunts’. But yeah, I love our kid when he’s not surrounded by the bullshit.”
