Noel Gallagher has called the entire youth population of America "little immature idiots" as Oasis continue their bid to break America.
In the latest outburst from the guitarist and songwriter, Gallagher claimed the only good bands in America are The White Stripes and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Speaking to the US press, Noel said America's kids would "buy anything". He insisted: "Actually you shouldn't be able to buy records until you're 16. You'll buy any old nonsense. Britney Spears and Eminem. What's that all about?"
