The quintessential "anyone can do it" rock band, Oasis were signed to Creation Records following their storming of an 18 Wheeler show, demanding that label-boss Alan McGee allow them to perform. This successful brand of "laddishness" has helped them become England's kings of rock 'n' roll in the '90s while doing a fair amount of barnstorming in America. Their simple, effective blend of T-Rex swagger, Johnny Rotten sneer, and Beatles melodies has proved to be a winning formula. Known as much for their antics as for their music, the brothers Gallagher have involved the public in their own personal temper tantrums, brought the Cocaine Ego back from the '70s, and once ashed on Mick Jagger's head. Controversies aside, they've managed to write some genuinely effective music and revitalize the spirit of rock 'n' roll with only a modicum of copyright infringement lawsuits.
