8 Legendary Duos Who Hated Each Other's Guts

1. Liam & Noel Gallagher

You're unlikely to find another pair of brothers in the music industry who loathe each other as much as the Gallaghers, but you're also unlikely to find a pair of brothers who loathe each other this much that are also capable of producing the kind of glorious kickassery found on Definitely Maybe.

Their sibling turmoil is widely documented by this point, with tensions between the two hot-tempered brothers rising with each ensuing album (it probably didn't help that each ensuing album was met with less satisfaction from the critics). They constantly talked trash about each other in the press, with their not-so-playful banter often (rightfully) overshadowing their most recent musical output. Because as good as they were in the recording studio, they were at their creative peak when they were insulting each other.

Here's a sample from Noel: "€œI read these interviews with him and I don€™'t know who the guy is who€™s in these interviews. He seems really cool. Because the guy I'€™ve been in a band with for the last 18 years is a f*cking knobhead.€" To realise just how little these two cared about keeping their infighting behind the curtain, look no further than Noel's public statement about the band's split in 2009: "It is with some sadness and great relief that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer."
