Liam Gallagher vs. Noel Gallagher: Beef History

Written by on November 20, 2017

Liam Gallagher vs. Noel Gallagher – When it comes to rock feuds, few are as entertaining as the one between Oasis’ Liam and Noel Gallagher. The swaggering brothers’ longstanding beef – which stretches back to childhood – was as much a part of the band’s mythology as its devotion to the Beatles, or its fondness for alcohol-fueled antics. And even though Oasis broke up in 2009, following years of threats on the part of either Gallagher, the feud continues to this day, with the estranged brothers trading barbs in the press and on social media. (“I’d rather eat my own shit than be in a band with him again,” Liam said in 2011.) To truly understand the scope of the Gallagher brothers’ bad blood, read on for a history of their conflicts, from the laughably petty to the somewhat serious.
