This single broke Oasis wide open, and helped vault their debut album into the stratosphere. Live Forever is more than the sum of Britpop, but it rose above the genre and defined the Oasis phenomenon. Every subsequent single rode this wave of optimism in the face of bullshit, lies, and blank stares.

The sleeve features the childhood home of John Lennon, and it is one of those fantastic collaborations between Microdot and Michael Spencer Jones.
