Modest Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher insists his volatile relationship with Chris Martin and Bono is all in good humour - because they know how much better his band is.

The LYLA hitmaker, who has repeatedly slammed other artists for being dull and boring, claims there is nothing wrong with a bit of competition, as long as everyone realises Oasis are the best.

He says, "Me, Chris and Bono have a friendly rivalry. Not that we're in some celebrity club, but I do talk to them on a regular basis and they know we're the b**locks.

"They know that we s**t over them. Coldplay and U2 haven't had three number ones in a row."
