It’s Britpop Week on Stereogum and no conflict defined the Britpop era more than the rivalry between Blur and Oasis — more specifically, the war of egos between the bands’ primary songwriters, Blur’s Damon Albarn and Oasis’ Noel Gallagher.

I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like “I’m about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I’m going to finger her,” and I’ll see it and be like, please don’t! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff.
