I would not dispute that oasis have some creditablity in music but i wouldnt even compare then with the Monkees, who were bloody brillaint compared to them, and they were a manufactured group.The problem today is there is no good opposition music.In the 60s we had the Stones, the Small Faces, The Who and they all looked up to the Beatles which made them good musicians in their own right! Today there is nothing! So the kids think Oasis are good. Who is ever forgetting the unforgetable Abba too. They were in a world of their own in the 70s.And Abba never came close to The Beatles. So whoever voted for Oasis really dont have a clue about music.

I agree! I too am 46, and the Beatles compare to no one. Will Oasis in 43 years still be mentioned as the top LP? I doubt it. It just happens that younger kids have nothing better to do but vote in polls.
