The infamous Oasis/Blur feud started just as much a play in the British press as an actual battle between bands, but it certainly made for entertaining tabloid fodder. At the center was their inherent contrasting backgrounds, not a minor topic in class-obsessed Britain. Blur were middle-class suburban London art-school kids, while Oasis were hard-drinking, blue-collar Manchester blokes who picked fights. Things took a nasty turn in ’96, when Noel Gallagher was quoted as saying that he wished Blur’s Damon Albarn and Alex James would “catch AIDS and die.”

Noel shocked the rock world again (or the part that still gave a damn) last year when he announced that he and Albarn had made nice over a couple beers.
