Noel Gallagher has slammed chart music.
The former Oasis rocker has criticised the state of the music industry and claims artists at the top of the current chart are ''s**t'' and ''all the f**king same''.
He said: ''Bands now go cap-in-hand to the industry and the industry has already decided what it wants for the f**king chart stars.
''But the charts are all the f**king same. Every single song in the Top 10 is the same s**t with a different voice.''
The 47-year-old musician is positive Oasis - who won fifteen NME Awards, nine Q Awards, four MTV European Music Awards and six Brit Awards - wouldn't have been as successful if they were starting out their career today as he doesn't think artists are given enough control.
He also alleged that national radio station BBC Radio 1 judges an artist by their following on social media.
He told NME magazine: ''If Oasis were starting tomorrow we would have nowhere near the impact, because you're judged instantly on your first gig, and then Radio 1 will judge you on how many f**king followers you've got on Facebook.
''Oasis never had an A&R at Creation - we were given the f**king keys to the kingdom and they went, 'Off you go, see you in a bit'.
''Now, the manager is accountable to the A&R guy, who's accountable to the guy above him, who's gonna lose his f**king job.''
