While the chart-topping English band fell apart upon Noel Gallagher walking out after too many spats with his kid brother, Liam, nearly five years ago, Oasis’s debut album, Definitely Maybe, will mark its 20th anniversary this year. And the 11-song set, which sold over a million copies on this side of the pond, will be remastered with plenty of bonus material and other rare goodies that should leave countless Britpop super fans quite chuffed.

Available via Big Brother Recordings on May 20, this special Definitely Maybe collection kicks off the first in the Chasing the Sun series. (What’s The Story?) Morning Glory and Be Here Now will receive similar remastered treatment later this year.

So what’s included in the new edition? The remastered original album, of course, along with all Definitely Maybe B-sides, and other rare and unreleased Oasis tunes. Live acoustic versions of “Live Forever” and “Shakermaker” from a Paris in-store gig are also available for the first time, plus their big UK Christmas single from 1994, “Whatever.” For more info on the Definitely Maybe remaster, visit oasisinet.com.

Not surprisingly, Liam Gallagher, recently took to Twitter to scoff at the forthcoming remasters.

“HOW CAN YOU REMASTER SOMETHING THATS ALREADY BEING MASTERED.DONT BUY INTO IT.LET IT BE LG X”

Oh c’mon Liam, it’s time to celebrate, ok? Grab a beer why don’t ya.

And coming up for Record Store Day on April 19, Oasis fans can get their hands on the limited edition 12-inch single “Supersonic” on heavyweight vinyl.
