Is it controversial if I just say its shit without playing it. I don't want Wonderwall to be forever ruined by OneD

It's already been forever ruined by everyone who's ever picked up a guitar (including me).

as if this isn't excruciating enough - the guitarist has the chords wrong for the bridge and chorus

Noel Gallagher has revealed that Beady Eye and the Olympic closing ceremony's organisers had to get his permission before he allowed them to play 'Wonderwall' at Sunday night's closing ceremony. Speaking on XFM, Gallagher said that the band had to re-record the track and send it to him first and that he toyed with the organisers for a while before he agreed to let them use it.

Asked about 'Wonderwall', he said: "They had to re-record it and then send it to me. I did play a bit of cat and mouse with them for a few days – I took it until Friday night at 10 o'clock before I said yes and they were shitting it." He continued: "Not Beady Eye, the organisers. Because I had to say yeah and I was like 'Meh, it's alright, I'm not sure with this new string arrangement' and they were like, 'Fuck! The gig's on Sunday,' so I was like 'OK, alright, you can have it then'."

Gallagher also confirmed that he himself was invited to play the ceremony, but turned it down as he didn't want to mime.

He said of this: "I was asked to do it a long time ago and, to be frank, they were being so secretive about it. I was like, 'Who else is playing?' and they were like, 'We can't tell you, you've got to sign a confidentiality agreement' – it's like it's the Iran nuclear programme or something."

He continued: "I mean, what do they think is going to happen? ITV are going to get hold of it and put on a gig the night before with the same bill?! And then they wanted me to do it acoustically and then they wanted me to mime... and I'm all for miming in TV shows - I'm all for that - but if you're in a stadium with 80,000 people and you're pretending? I can play live!"

He continued further: "One of the organisers... I said [to him] 'Why do you want me to mime?' and he said, 'It's a big gig'. Really?! I do this shit for a living! In the end, I was just like, 'You know what? I'd rather watch it on the telly'."Gallagher played 'Wonderwall' last night at a War Child benefit gig in London and dedicated the track to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band"

this man is too funny.
