The Oasis song that was inspired by Nirvana’s “I Hate Myself and Want to Die”

-During the nineties, Nirvana and Oasis stood at opposite ends of alternative rock. While the Manchester musicians were the most melodic side of the time, the Seattle lineup represented the most chaotic and nihilistic trend of their generation. Nevertheless, there was something else that united both groupsbeyond their mutual love for the legacy of The Beatles.

-Years ago, during an interview with the television program lock the boxNoel and Liam Gallagher spoke about how the single “Live Forever” represented a turning point in their career. In this regard, the eldest of the brothers commented: “It was the melody, as I recall, that changed everything. It seemed to be a day that we were a certain kind of band. I mean it was written before the record deal and all that. That set off a chain reaction and everything went on from there.”

Later, the acclaimed Oasis guitarist confessed that the 1994 song was inspired by a song by Kurt Cobain and company: “At the time it was written in the middle of grunge and all that, I remember Nirvana had a song called ‘I Hate Myself and Want to Die’. Which made me think like ‘Well, I’m not going to support that.’ that I like him and all that shit”.

So “Live Forever” was a way of responding to Cobain’s self-destruction slogans and raising something radically opposite: the idea of ​​living forever, one way or another. You can take a look at that interview below.
