  • This song features actor Johnny Depp on slide guitar. Guitarist Noel Gallagher was reportedly too drunk to play so Depp played in his stead. >>

  • Just like the band's first two albmus Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story?) Morning Glory, Be Here Now went to #1 in the UK. It was recorded at Abbey Road, Ridge Farm, Air, Master Rock and Orinocco Studios, England between November 1996 and April 1997. >>

  • 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."
