Obviously The Smiths sound older than Oasis, but I wonder because of the rapid changes to the charts in the past 10 years (you no longer get rock/indie in the charts), and the fact that bands such as Interpol (heavily influenced by Joy Division and 80s indie) were having hits in the mid 2000s.
Honestly I think Oasis sound older than The Smiths, and that doesn't mean they are better or worse for it. Just that Oasis' very simple sound (distorted power chord, basic rock n roll drum beats, bass playing root notes, pentatonic guitar solos) as well as their typical arrogant rock attitude fits in better with the rock of the seventies than it does in the nineties. Obviously youve got the whole Britpop thing but Oasis were far more traditional than the rest of the bands in that movement.

I think the Oasis stuff will stand up as less dated sounding. Someone mentioned the guitar sounds being very 80's on the smiths stuff i tend to agree

I agree. You can generally hear that the Smiths are older, but they invented something new and because of that they have aged better. Oasis revived old ideas and sounds, so their music gets a bit stale to me after a while.

I think Oasis would sound more dated now than The Smiths would have 10 years ago or than The Smiths would sound now. Oasis mimicked classic rock with a huge, bombastic sound (I am a fan) + they left out all those long jam sessions mid-song. They wore their influences on their sleeves, while The Smiths created a sound. While Oasis may have encouraged many to pick up guitars, The Smiths influences can be heard in both Interpol and The Editors, and I'm sure countless others 10 years ago and now.
