Noel Gallagher believes rock 'n' roll is ''in hibernation''.
The 'Ballad of the Mighty I' singer thinks the genre is currently experiencing a lull because he can't see any new bands emerging who are as good as rockers such as Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian who launched over a decade ago.
Asked if rock 'n' roll is dead, he said: ''Not as long as I'm still going, it's f**king not!
''It's there but it's certainly lacking the re-generation process.
''So that's ten years ago. So the evidence is that it is kind of in hibernation.''
The 48-year-old former Oasis musician continued to say the band were part of ''the old world'' before the internet revolutionised the music industry.
He added: ''Oasis was the last band from the old world. We happened before the digital age.''
But Noel said he believes the internet has actually had a negative impact on rock because less people seem to be interested in it and record labels don't want to invest in up-and-coming bands like they did when Oasis launched.
Speaking on BBC Four's 'What Ever Happened to Rock 'n' Roll?' he explained: ''In theory the internet and YouTube should be helping new bands get off the ground but it hasn't - it's got worse. The record labels just aren't interested in working-class bands any more.''
Since returning to his musical ventures in 2013, the former Reuben vocalist has become a valuable member of the British alt-rock scene.
