Oasis' Noel Gallagher has revealed what he believes are the 10 best bands of all time.

Writing on the official Oasis blog on the band's website, Oasisinet.com, Gallagher asserted that The Beatles were the best band to ever pick up guitars.

"In the dressing room the traditional debate has started about 'The Top 10'", he wrote after a recent gig on Oasis' North American tour. "This means the Top 10 bands of all time. No solo artists allowed. No female artists allowed. No collectives allowed (Public Enemy etc.).

"This is the 1,000th time we’ve been here with this. It never gets any less interesting for me. For the record, THE DEFINITIVE Top 10 is this.."

The star's list then reads:

1: The Beatles
2: The Rolling Stones
3: The Who
4: Sex Pistols
5: The Kinks
6: The La's
7: Pink Floyd
8: The Bee Gees
9: The Specials
10: (Peter Green's) Fleetwood Mac
