The Godlike Wisdom Of Noel Gallagher

This one speaks for itself really. Or rather, he does. Noel Gallagher has recently been announced as this year's recipient of the Godlike Genius award, and it's an accolade well-deserved for a variety of reasons.

Of course there's the small matter of 18 years of Oasis and seven classic albums, from 'Definitely Maybe' to 'Dig Out Your Soul', and also his more recent foray sans Liam with the High Flying Birds and the forthcoming collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous.

But perhaps he mostly richly deserves this award for his tireless services to rock mythology, his one-of-a-kind interviews and his steady stream of cutting, insightful, or just downright hilarious quotes. Here's 20 of his more genius soundbites; share your own favourite below.
