  • The only ever instance of Noel Gallagher screaming on a song occurred when Oasis were recording this. He recalled on his Absolute Radio show: "Me and Liam did a scream. We had to take a week off afterwards. It was awful. If you hear it on the record, it's put through a harmonizer and it sounds… it wasn't very good. I'm closing my eyes now and thinking of it and I'm thinking it's not very good."
