Noel: ‘Our music has changed people’s lives, I know it has, Live Forever has, but all the songs on that album were written when I was on the dole and I had fuck all going for me. I was writing about escaping. I wasn’t writing about being on the dole and how shit it was. I was writing about how great it could be if we were in a band. That’s what [people] – especially the people who come to the gigs – can relate to cause we’re singing about them. If it takes you out of your surroundings, if you’re listening to it at work or on the bus, then that’s what it’s all about’.
