'Wonderwall' by Oasis has been voted the biggest song of the past 20 years in a massive Australian poll.

Over 940,000 votes were cast in the poll by Australian radio network Triple J. 'Wonderwall' was trailed by The White Stripes' 'Seven Nation Army' in second and Jeff Buckley's 'Last Goodbye' in third.

The entire top 100 can be viewed here. Daft Punk, The Killers and Silverchair make three appearances each.

'Wonderwall' was the third single from Oasis's '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' album. Released in October 1995, it peaked at Number Two on the UK singles chart but reached Number One in Australia, New Zealand and Spain.

Meanwhile, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has recently revealed he is interested in reforming the band to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the band's debut album 'Definitely Maybe'.

His new band Beady Eye release their second album 'BE' today (June 10) and will play live at Manchester Ritz on June 19 before heading to London for a show at Camden Centre on June 20. The short stint will then come to a close in Glasgow at the ABC on June 22. The band have also lined up festival slots at Benicassim, V Festival and T In The Park this summer.
