Noel Gallagher criticized modern pop stars while counting his band Oasis in the same league as the Beatles.
Gallagher said that today's acts are 'rubbish' and he misses the days when Britpop ruled the charts.
He also claims that Oasis can line up with pioneers like The Beatles and the Sex Pistols among the greats of British music.
"The days of Oasis and Blur were the last great assault on the charts by alternative music. Christmas Top of the Pops was dreadful," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
"Every song sounded like it came from the same field of music. There was a rap in there somewhere, everyone sang in a transatlantic soul voice and it was rubbish.
"The Britpop thing was vastly different. We were all great live bands, and that's gone now," he said.
