Noel’s love of Lennon has been well documented over the years, with the singer opting to include the chords of ‘Imagine’ at the start of Oasis‘ ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’.

NME has contacted Noel Gallagher’s representatives for comment on the reports.

The 1995 single, which previously reached Number Two in the UK singles chart, reached the milestone following the 25th anniversary celebrations of ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’. It is the first track from the 1990s to reach such a target.

To accompany the anniversary, Oasis released a new vinyl reissue package for the classic 1995 album.
