Steve Earle Prefers Arsenal To Manchester City Because Noel Gallagher Is Trash
Get the best email in soccer.
Steve Earle is an incredible songwriter, and like all incredible songwriters he has a good ear for folks who are not good songwriters, like Noel Gallagher.
Earle riffed on the Oasis frontman in a recent profile in the Guardian:
Not that Earle has ever needed encouragement to say what he thinks. A keen Arsenal fan, he pulls a face when I mention I support Manchester City. “I dislike Man City because it is Oasis’s club. Noel Gallagher is the most overrated songwriter in the whole history of pop music. They were perfect for the Brit press because they behaved badly and got all the attention. Blur were really great. That guy Damon Albarn is a real fuckin’ songwriter.”
This is the most likable thing any Arsenal fan has ever done. Noel Gallagher is a trash songwriter and the world is a worse-off place because of Wonderwall's existence. Also Champagne Supernova makes my ears bleed. Instead of listening to those bad songs, y'all should listen to Galway Girl or Oxycontin Blues or The Devil's Right Hand.
One thing's for certain: Noel Gallagher better stay away from Copperhead Road.
