"In the summer, after avidly watching the World Cup, Noel began writing a new batch of songs. They had titles such as 'Gas Panic', 'Cigarettes In Hell' and 'Revolution Song'. (Paolo Hewitt, 'Forever The People - Six Months On The Road With Oasis', published 1999.)

"We did have one track which didn't go on called 'Revolution Song'. It was demoed two years ago and it's an out-an'-out gospel song, but not in the sense that 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' by U2 is a gospel song. I think it's a really, really good song. We were going to have the full-on gospel choir singing it until fucking Blur put out 'Tender' and then we went, 'fucking bastards!'. That'll have to wait for the next one. They always nick our ideas!" (Noel, Melody Maker, February 23, 2000)

"There is a song called Revolution Song which should have been on the last three albums that's not made it on to any of them, er.. because… I suppose… every time we go to record stuff we just forget about that song and it's quite a good song really. I don't know… might resurrect it, sooner or later." (Noel, The Chris Moyles Show, BBC Radio 1, London, England, July 4, 2002)

"It's called Revolution Song. But it's shite anyway." (Noel, Zanzibar Club, Liverpool, England, May 3, 2003)
