Today October 2nd marks the 20th anniversary ... yes the 20th anniversary of the release of probably one of the most iconic albums of the past 30 years and one which definitely defined an era and WTSMG? transformed Oasis into the biggest band in Britain.
It was reported the day after its release HMV stores were selling copies of the album at a rate of two per minute. At the end of the first week of sales, the album had sold a record-breaking 347,000 copies, making it (at the time) the second-fastest-selling album in British history,
'(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' has so far sold more than 20 million copies worldwide - 4.2 just in the UK - and featured the band's first number one single 'Some Might Say'.
Six singles were taken from What's the Story Morning Glory?
"Some Might Say", "Roll with It", "Morning Glory", "Wonderwall", "Don't Look Back in Anger", "Champagne Supernova"
The album was voted the 'Best Album Of The Past 30 Years' at the Brit Awards. In 1996, the band headlined Knebworth Park selling out 125,000 tickets in just 4 hours for the first night ... the rest is history.
In the words of author and music journalist, Paolo Hewitt: "Oasis was a phenomenan ... it was a phenomenan"
