Oasis' debut album, 'Definitely Maybe', has been named the greatest record of all time - even beating The Beatles.
The British rockers' critically acclaimed record knocked the Fab Four's most famous work, 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band', into second place in a worldwide poll.
The poll was conducted by music magazine website NME.com and the British Hit Singles and Albums book.
'Definitely Maybe' - masterminded by rock 'n' roll siblings Liam and Noel Gallagher - featured a string of classic hits, including 'Live Forever' and 'Supersonic', and catapulted the Manchester band into superstardom in 1994.
Both Oasis and The Beatles had other entries in the top ten: The Beatles' 'Revolver' was third, while Oasis' second album, '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' was fifth.
The Fab Four had the most entries in the top 100, with a total of five.
Other albums to make the top ten included Radiohead's 'OK Computer', at four, Nirvana's 'Nevermind', at six, and Pink Floyd's classic 'Dark Side of the Moon' at number eight.
