Most Underrated Oasis Songs

Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger, Champagne Supernova and Stop Crying Your Heart Out are all overrated songs. Whereas Oasis have done some overrated songs, they have done songs that sound better, have better lyrics and deserve more recognition.

The Top Ten

1 Some Might Say

And so, a legend was born - SpectralOwl

The lyrics and the music are just brilliant! This is one of my favourite songs in existance. Don't tell me that the overrated Oasis songs are better than this! - PositronWildhawk

My favorite Oasis song, everything in it is perfect

2 Listen Up

The drums from Live Forever and the guitar from Supersonic

Good lyrics

Catchy guitar riff, very similar to supersonic not equally as brilliant but still very underrated

I check this list out for this song haha

3 Morning Glory

Great guitar and lyrics - and of course the voice of Liam is amazing.


One of the best tune

4 The Masterplan

Without a doubt, Top 5 best Oasis songs

Easily Noel's best song, without a doubt,
although this song was made to be a b-side it still stands out to me, for personal reasons but is still a brill tune

5 Live Forever

Got to something ridiculous like number 21 in the charts. Just shows that the charts mean nothing. Best if not second best (to Don't Look Back in Anger) oasis song!

6 Acquiesce

It's so underrated many people don't list it, this one and "Whatever" are the two CLEAR contenders in this list, hands down. I would and "Columbia" to this list, but I don't think it is AS good as the two mentioned.

This absolutely should have been an A-side. What a kick-ass tune. Liam and Noel, trading vocals, singing their hearts out. Fantastic energy. Fantastic track.

Yeah, it's a great song! Should NOT be a B-Side. - PositronWildhawk

7 Cast No Shadow

DEfinitely one that was ahead of its time, listening to it 20 years later you realise how many hidden gems never saw the light of day and this is most definitely one of them

Such a great song! Should have been released as a single instead of Roll With It

Such a wonderful song! Noel's backing vocals are amazing. The lyrics are so good too. Pure genius.

8 Columbia

What a tune!

Amazing Song, not the best but severely underrated.

Their best in my opinion

9 Rockin' Chair

I voted it here means it really underrated.

Very nice song... Unfortunately it's not having the right value

10 The Importance of Being Idle

Given that this song polled #19 in the best Oasis songs of all time poll when it is in fact a classic, it has to be their most underrated.

Even Noel Gallagher said it was one of the best songs he ever wrote

A kind of classic... So underrated

The Contenders

11 Stop Crying Your Heart Out

It's a good en, but it should be on this

12 Half the World Away

People realise how good this is after the john lewis ad. Always loved this song and definitely underrated

My favorite song ever

Absolute beauty

Me transporta a lo más profundo de mi ser

13 (It's Good) To Be Free

Second favorite after Slide Away

This song's one of those little things that make me so happy

Maybe the best B-side they ever wrote

14 Supersonic

In my opinion this is Oasis' best song

15 Married With Children
16 Gas Panic!

Yes, this song is TOTALLY underrated! This is not only the best song on the Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants album, but one of the best Oasis songs. Crazy how low it was on the Best Oasis Songs list.

I love this song, it's just so chill and the guitar work really compliments the vocals by Noel, it's just amazing, everything about it and really is an underrated masterpiece

17 Hey Now!

A song that in my opinion has attitude which makes it unique and a brilliant song.

When I first heard it back in 2009 I thought Oh my god this is superb I don't know why it didn't get popular

18 Slide Away

The best song on the first album

19 I'm Outta Time

Oh can't find the words to say

Liam's best piece of work as a song writer

I love it

20 Shakermaker
21 D'you Know What I Mean?

One of their best surprised it isn't talked about more - Nebulous

22 Sad Song

This is what you call underrated.

My favourite Oasis song and nobody ever knows it even if they consider themselves proper Oasis fans :(

23 Roll With It
24 Whatever
25 She's Electric

Its good!
I'm telling you, This one is good!
It's like the intro tune recorded in my brain the first time I'm hearing it.

A good one, but not their best I think..

26 Underneath the Sky

Most underrated song they have ever done by a country mile!

Liam's vocals is awesome in this song

Ridiculously underrated, even as one of their B sides.

27 I Am the Walrus

Absolutely better than the original version

Awesome Beatles cover; a lot better than the original and massively underrated. - PositronWildhawk

28 Hello
29 Be Here Now

Probably the most underrated song by oasis

This song is in my top 10 of best oasis songs

In the shadow of morning glory, the whole album is underrated, and this song be here now absolutley rocks

30 Fade In-Out

Just unbeatable; the guitar is unique and the lyrics are great! Hundreds of times better than the Oasis songs that everyone's heard of. - PositronWildhawk

31 Talk Tonight

In my opinion their second best song after slide away. The story behind it is also very interesting

So underrated that I've had to add it to the list! Brilliant, deep and just means a lot to me. I know somebody who told me this was their favourite Oasis song when we were talking about Oasis and to be fair I'd forgotten about how brilliant this song is. In my opinion it's personal top ten Oasis songs material Top three would probably be Sad Song I'm Outta Time And Talk Tonight

32 Cloudburst
33 Let's All Make Believe
34 Wonderwall

This is overrated. - SonicAdam

35 I Hope, I Think, I Know

Wow this song is really good can't find the words to say

Just rocking'. "Life is hit or miss"

Most of the songs in the top 10 aren't really underrated. Those are among the famous ones. Oasis didn't even play this one life and it's, as Liam would say, foking great d'you know what I mean?

36 Take Me Away

Some might say is definitely not under rated.

37 All Around the World

Long but fun, that is how I view most of the song on Be Here Now and This is no exeption

38 Roll It Over

The underrated ''Champagne Supernova''. One of the best songs from ''Standing on the Shoulder of Giants'' and Oasis entire career!

39 Born On a Different Cloud
40 Alive

What a tune - can't believe this was never used on an album. So simple but so emotional.

41 Magic Pie

I dig his shooes

42 Keep the Dream Alive

Best song on DBTT. Best lyrics, melody, rhythm.

43 Bonehead's Bank Holiday

I need a little break for a Holiday so I can see the sun

44 (I Got) the Fever
45 Guess God Thinks I'm Abel
46 A Quick Peep
47 Songbird
48 Headshrinker
49 My Big Mouth

Some unbelievable vocals from Liam, sounds incredible live and doesn't get much love

50 Falling Down
