Ex-Oasis singer Liam Gallagher criticized Pearl Jam in a new interview with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins for Magnet Magazine.
Hawkins: What about when all the ’90s shit was going on, and you guys were getting ready to fight your war over there?
Gallagher: I did like Nirvana, and I liked some of the tunes. Who else was out at the time? I wasn’t a big fan of Pearl Jam.
Gallagher: All the grunge stuff was a bit different for me, I’ll be honest with you. There’s a few bands.
Hawkins: Few songs here and there.
Gallagher: I was kind of caught up in all the old stuff. I was kind of into the Monkees and all that when all that stuff was going down.
Hawkins: Well, it’s like you guys were kind of having your same sort of thing like what was happening in Seattle, in a way. English version.
Gallagher: Exactly. And I like Guns N’ Roses. They’ve got some tunes.
Hawkins: Yeah, they do. And they’re powerful, and they still sound good on the radio today, you know? When you hear fucking “Welcome To The Jungle” or fucking “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” it’s a classic fucking song. When Oasis came out and all these other bands came out at the same time, and the critics they love to use this kind of a word to describe one genre, but there’s nothin’ like it. Do you fucking hate Britpop?
