Noel Gallagher On Champagne Supernova: “What f**king does it mean?”


Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has admitted he has no idea what the lyrics of ‘Champagne Supernova’ are about.

Gallagher was speaking to SiriusXM’s ’90s alternative and grunge station Lithium when he made the remarks.

“I was on my last tour and I was playing ‘Champagne Supernova.’ That song is so long, and I often find myself drifting off enjoying the song and thinking, “What f**king does it mean?” You know, “Walking down the hall faster than a cannonball,” what the f**k is all that about? And I should know, ’cause I wrote it, and I haven’t got a clue,” Noel admitted.

“And it was somewhere in the north of England that I happened to glance up at the crowd. It was just a sea of teenagers, all young lads, all with their tops off on each other’s shoulders, singing the words of a nonsensical song by a band that were broke up when — they were two years old when the band f**king broke up.”

“I think to myself sometimes, you know, “That’s what it means. Because we recorded it and it was written while we were still relatively young. It still appeals to young people, and it’s gone through three or four generations now.”

Earlier this month the Oasis guitarist caused controversy when he publicly admitted that he doesn’t where a mask, complaining that it is a violation of his liberty.

Gallagher was in conversation on Matt Morgan’s podcast and said: “It’s not a law. There’s too many f**king liberties being taken away from us now … I choose not to wear one. If I get the virus it’s on me, it’s not on anyone else … it’s a piss-take. There’s no need for it … They’re pointless.”
