Noel Gallagher has slammed chart music and declared is all as "s**t" in a recent interview.

The former Oasis rocker has criticised the state of the music industry and claims artists at the top of the current chart are "s**t" and "all the f**king same".

"Bands now go cap-in-hand to the industry and the industry has already decided what it wants for the f**king chart stars," He said.

"But the charts are all the f**king same. Every single song in the Top 10 is the same s**t with a different voice."

The 47-year-old musician is positive Oasis - who won fifteen NME Awards, nine Q Awards, four MTV European Music Awards and six Brit Awards - wouldn't have been as successful if they were starting out their career today as he doesn't think artists are given enough control.

He also alleged that national radio station BBC Radio 1 judges an artist by their following on social media.

"If Oasis were starting tomorrow we would have nowhere near the impact, because you're judged instantly on your first gig, and then Radio 1 will judge you on how many f**king followers you've got on Facebook," he told NME magazine.

"Oasis never had an A&R at Creation - we were given the f**king keys to the kingdom and they went, 'Off you go, see you in a bit'.

"Now, the manager is accountable to the A&R guy, who's accountable to the guy above him, who's gonna lose his f**king job."
