Liam Gallagher may not be in Oasis any longer, but that doesn't mean he's done insulting his fellow musical artists. (Oasis, of course, was famous for claiming to be "bigger than the Beatles.") His target this time: Radiohead. "I heard that f***ing Radiohead record [The King Of Limbs, influenced by a 1,000-year-old tree] and I just go, 'What?!' I like to think that what we do, we do f***ing well," Gallagher, who now fronts a new band, tells The Quietus.

"Them writing a song about a f***ing tree? Give me a f***ing break! A thousand year old tree? Go f*** yourself! You’d have thought he’d have written a song about a modern tree or one that was planted last week. You know what I mean?" (More Oasis stories.)
