The band are the latest in a long line of artists to encourage their fans to wash their hands, with Liam Gallagher sharing a series of videos which saw some of the biggest Oasis tracks given a coronavirus-themed update.

The first video saw Gallagher upgrade the 1995 hit Wonderwall, which he changed to "WONDERWASH", while another clip saw him give his 1994 Supersonic banger the puntastic title of "SOAPERSONIC".

Last week, The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers also went viral for washing his hands while singing Mr. Brightside.

The Las Vegas rocker was urging his fans to keep washing their hands to the chart-topping Hot Fuss track, so he finally decided to practice what he preached, and shared a video to go with it.

Added to that, the likes of Coldplay's Chris Martin and John Legend have played live gigs on Instagram, U2 legend Bono has shared a song which he was inspired to write due to the pandemic, and Gal Gadot enlisted her celebrity friends to help her sing John Lennon's Imagine.

However, by far the most amusing video was an Imagine cover parody video shared by Joe Lycett and his comedy pals.
