Apparently, Noel Gallagher of the once somewhat famous band Oasis was upset that the part owner of the soon to be Brooklyn Nets was chosen to headline the annual Glastonbury Festival this summer.

In what turned out to be a quick object lesson for Noel in not getting into a war of words with someone who basically built his name brand in such battles, Jay-Z opened his Glastonbury set with a scathing “cover” of Wonderwall, the song for which Oasis is best known.  Stereogum tells more of this sordid tale here (with comments!).

I’m not a big Hova fan, but he is a big-time performer. Plus, the AC/DC workover of 99 Problems is pretty fun.
