Kele Okereke has effectively patted Liam Gallagher on the head and said "quiet now, son" in response to Gallagher's suggestion that Bloc Party are "like a band off University Challenge."
To be fair, Kele's response would have been a bit sharper if he hadn't taken two years to respond, but even so, it's a lovely thing to behold - on a par with Homer Simpson's "I give you: your moron":
Okereke responded by saying Oasis were "overrated", although he admitted the University Challenge comment was "quite funny".
"It probably would have been a lot more funny had he not used exactly the same words to describe Travis a couple of years ago," he added.
But it's in his destruction of Oasis's claims to be the heir to The Beatles that he really hits home:
Of course. The message is: if you want to be the new Beatles, better make sure your band isn't led by a pair of Ringos.
