Gallagher Wrote Hit Song As A Backlash To Nirvana
OASIS rocker NOEL GALLAGHER wrote uplifting hit song LIVE FOREVER after he became depressed listening to US band NIRVANA.
Gallagher admits he wrote the track in the mid 90s after he heard a particularly downbeat Nirvana song.
He reveals, "It was written in the middle of the grunge and all that and I remember Nirvana had a tune called I Hate Myself And I Want To Die and I was like 'Well, I'm not having that.'
"I can't have people like that coming over here, on smack, saying that they hate themselves and they wanna die. That's just rubbish."
Live Forever was recently voted as the Greatest Indie Anthem of all time by British music magazine NME.
