Speaking with Songfacts, Andrew Farriss
of INXS could neither confirm or deny the "we're better than Oasis" story. "When Michael and I were working together in Dublin, Ireland, Michael went out to a pub that night and I stayed on to work in the studio and record some ideas when we were songwriting there for Elegantly Wasted
," he said. "We went out to a pub and then I got tired and went home, and he must have gone back in the studio. I think he deliberately chose that time to go back in the studio because I wasn't there. So I don't know."
