Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 2, 1996 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Guitarist Noel Gallagher sang lead on this instead of their normal vocalist Liam Gallagher. The Beatles - and especially John Lennon - were a huge influence on Oasis, and that influence is perhaps most apparent in this song. The piano intro was taken from Lennon's "Imagine," and the line "So I start a revolution from my bed" is a reference to the sing, who staged a famous "bed-in" to promote peace. The song was written exactly 40 years on from when a play called Look Back In Anger by John Osborne was produced in London's west end. The main character, called Jimmy Porter, captured the angry and rebellious nature of the generation. There could be some irony in this - maybe what Oasis are trying to say is that they are the new generation of rebels in rock.
