To be fair to Noel Gallagher, there are some strong points made in his critique of hip-hop - there is a lot of sexism in the genre. But to dismiss an entire genre in such sweeping terms is a little bit... well, ignorant:

"I fucking hate it... all the people that make that kind of music and all the people that buy it. When you see the videos of some guy throwing 100 dollar bills over a naked woman lying on a bed with a dog leash around her fucking neck... what the fuck is all that about? That to me doesn't seem to be right somehow."

"Back in the '70s and '80s, if that was done by a rock 'n' roll band, it'd be called sexist and there'd be shock, horror and outrage. For some reason, hip-hop artists tend to get away with that. It's all about the bling and the money. The critical thing about these fucking is they go on about 'increase the peace' and getting kids to stay in school, but they're all raving crack heads. It's a fake form of music to me, and they're all a bunch of idiots anyway."

Yeah, those rappers are always on drugs and going on about it - why can't they write some other songs like "all your dreams are made, when you're chained to the mirror and..." hang on, I'm going...

Yeah, but Gawd bless'im. Noel "never read a book in me life" Gallagher certainly never encouraged anyone to stay in school. So he may be thick, he may like his coke, but at least he isn't a hypocrite.
