Over the decades these bands are very famous, I think we all probably have heard and maybe seen these bands as well, we call them legendary. You are probably wondering why some of these bands break up and some one of the members in the band have gone to heaven. Today I put 6 rock bands in history that a lot of people might know to present to you.

Oasis

Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991 and made up of a core of Liam Gallagher ( the older brother) he was the singer of Oasis band and Noel Gallagher (the younger brother) was one of guitarist with Paul Aurthurs was the guitarist, Tony McCarroll was the drummer and the last one is Pual McGuigan was the bassist of the band.

The Oasis band was very popular and successful around the world because of their music that was unique and joyful.

For 20 years after forming the band, on August 28th 2009 at Rock en Seine Festival in Paris. Usually Liam and Noel always fight because of their personal problems but this time is more worse than any time. They fight in the back stage, and then Liam broke Noel’s guitar, Noel was really angry at him and then the concert had to stop immediately. So that was the time the band stopped.

Oasis’s famous songs

  • Wonderwall
  • Don’t look back in anger 
  • Stop crying your heart out
  • Supersonic
  • Champagne supernova

Oasis’s albums

  • Definitely maybe
  • (What’s the story) Morning Glory?
  • Be Here Now
  • Standing on the shoulders of Giants
  • Heathen Chemistry

  • Dig Out Your Soul

The latest song that Noel Gallagher has launched was “don’t stop”. This song was an old demo that they made and recorded in Hong kong about 15 years ago in the form of acoustic but still sounds like Oasis at the same time. 

After this song launched Liam Gallagher said that “ Well there’s something missing in this god almighty stew and it’s your brother your brother don’t forget your brother La as you were LG x” and “Oi tofu boy if your gonna release old demos make sure im singing on it and boneheads playing guitar on it if not it’s not worth a wank as you were LG x”. It seems like they are not yet broken by the band and people hope they get back together again!

Nirvana

Nirvana was an American Grunge and alternative rock band that formed in Aberdeen, Washington state in 1987. Made up of guitarist and singer Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic was the bassist. In 1990 Dave Grohl became drummer of the band.

Nirvana had only 3 albums in a short time of 7 years. Even though their music has stopped since 1994, their music has remained a trend for inspiration and influence on modern rock and roll culture and some teenagers still recognize these songs. Nowadays you might see a lot of t-shirts that have Nirvana logos on them because vintage t-shirts are very popular.

The reason why Nirvana had to end was because Kurt Cobain died in 1994, at the age of 27 since releasing the first of his albums. His case was confirmed that he had died because suiside because of the drug he used and he was suffered depression but the fan thinks that it was a murdered considered by his letter that he side beside of his body, the gun he used and the fans thinks that courtney Love is behind the reasons he is dead. but nobody really know how he died.

In December,8th 1980 John Lennon got shot in New york around his apartment by Mark Devid Chapman. He was a fan of John Lennon, he was very obsessed with The Beatles especially with John Lennon, like John Lennon was a hero of his heart.
