Noel Gallagher has responded to musicians putting an 80s twist on one of his most iconic Oasis anthems.

A band by the name of DECO shared a video which sees them treat Don't Look Back In Anger as if it "came out in the 80s" by blending it with one of Hall & Oates' biggest hits Out Of Touch.

They captioned their post: "Noel Gallagher is going to be livid".

However, Noel has seen the funny side and appeared to give the take his seal of approval, while of course complimenting his own songwriting.

Retweeting the performance, he wrote: "In any era it’s STILL a tuuuune!! NG," to which the band replied: "We were wrong… thanks Noel".
