Gallagher attacks Green Day for 'ripping off' Wonderwall14/12/2006 - 10:22:49
Oasis star Noel Gallagher has accused punk trio Green Day of "ripping off" his Wonderwall anthem for their hit Boulevard Of Broken Dreams.
Gallagher has been a long-time outspoken critic of the American Idiot hitmakers, but admits he was fuming the first time he heard their 2005 hit.
Gallagher explains: "If you listen, you'll find it is exactly the same arrangement as Wonderwall.
"They should have the decency to wait until I am dead (before releasing this). I, at least, pay the people I steal from that courtesy."
And the rocker's rant continues: "They consider themselves to be - and I quote - 'a kick-ass rock 'n' roll band'. They could not be less kick-ass if they tried."
