Yeah because Oasis spits out the hits these days. Since when did you go from the spazzy recluse who rambled about nutter butters to the shameless panderer to the teen-age loiterers?

Green Day in the long haul. I hate how people judge a band if they make a different/less popular/more popular but not deserving album. I hate Korn's new material, but I'm not going to say they aren't any good, since I like some older songs.

alright..i'll probably take some heat for this..especially with the younger crowd..but oasis the greatest band of the 90's? no way..I'd have to give that title to Nirvana..Oasis wouldn't have squat as far as radio play goes if Nirvana hadn't helped to kill the Metal Scene in the 90's. I know critics rave about Nirvana, which automaticlly turns off a lot of people and results in people calling them overrated..but the gods honest truth is that they dominated the early 90's..and they deserve the acclaim they get. I liked Oasis, and I liked Green Day..no way would I say that either band holds a candle to Nirvana..or hell..i HATE THEM..but Pearl Jam was a bigger, more adored band in the 90's.

Nirvana and Oasis were BOTH critical bands in their own time. Nirvana temporarily destroyed all that had gone before them; music changed direction - not over time, but in a flash - such was their impact.

Oasis are similar. I've no idea how many records Oasis have sold in America, but from the feel of this thread, I guess it's not all that many. One has to wonder why?

What this comes down to is:

Green Day:

Have written several decent albums over a long period of time.
Have a wide audience.
Pretty unoriginal

Oasis:

Have written several decent albums over a long period of time.
Have written one of the best and most critical pop/rock albums of modern times.
Have a wide audience
Pretty unoriginal

I gotta go with Oasis. If you removed Green day from existence then i'm pretty sure that much nothing would change. If you removed Oasis then I reckon that there would be a very significant change.

The impact of 'Definately Maybe' was COLOSSAL, and rightly so. Live Forever, Supersonic and Shakermaker are tremendous pop songs, and 'Rock and Roll Star' and 'Cigarettes and alcohol' - heavily ripped off, as they were - inspired kids everywhere. Following the release of DM was the Christmas single 'Whatever'. Probably the greatest song not to make it to no1 at Christmas.

Hmmm, I personally prefer Green Day to Oasis, although neither are anywhere near my favourites. Oasis were an extremely important band in Britain. Oasis, along with Nirvana, were probably the main inspiration for most teenagers to pick up guitars and start forming bands in the 90's. Green Day were another band that did this, but everything about them was so unoriginal that I suppose they could only have a limited impact.

The idea that you could be a rock star without much instrumental skill, without particurlarly inspired lyrics (Oasis) and without having to dress for the stage got a lot of people interested in forming bands. Unfortunately, it ended up spawning bands like the Stereophonics. Who are ****.

actualy after the release of oasis 3rd album, being a big let down for many fans, for what seemed the end of brit pop. alowing other suchs acts or genres to blossom...such as "grunge", with its bands like nirvana...all i have to realy say is...90's was a great year for music, unlike this inteminable centry...

Lol, dookie, kerplunk and slapp hour are soooo pop ****.

Green Day easily, aside from wonderwall I don't care for Oasis. While I don't listen to Green Day, the three albums I listed above were great pop-punk albums and Green Day had a alot of impact of the new pop-punk scene (mainly dookie). Which produced some of my favorite bands, Blink 182, Saves The Day, and Say Anything for instance.
