Former Oasis and current Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher recently professed his disapproval and lack of understanding of the hype around Daft Punk's worldwide mega-hit "Get Lucky." Liam is quoted by The Sun as saying “I’d write that in a f***ing hour. I don’t know what the fuss is about, you know what I mean? It’s like f**k off, give me a f**king break.”
As a songwriter, Gallagher was clearly proud to show off his diverse vocabulary and skill with words in his critique of the French duo's work. He also took issue with their wardrobe, saying "I am not going to have people wear disguises. Take your fucking helmet off. Let's see what you look like sans helmet, whatever you're called." Gallagher did not say why he disapproved of their robotic appearance, but perhaps one day he will elaborate on his feelings.
Gallagher's group Beady Eye is preparing for the release of their second album, BE, which will arrive June 10. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk said “We’re working on some mixes ourselves, so yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. The first track we’re remixing is Get Lucky. That will be out by the end of June.” We will have to wait to see what Gallagher will have to say about the future remixes, especially since they would be competing on the charts.
It is unlikely that Daft Punk will comply with Gallagher's request to remove their helmets though. There is also no word on whether Gallagher plans to actually write a worldwide number-one song in an hour, though it would be a considerable step forward for him, considering his brother Noel wrote the majority of Oasis' work.
