Noel Gallagher performs with Noel Gallagher's Flying Birds at Clapham Common on July 4, 2015 in London, England. 

Also, he opened his NME video interview with a deadmau5 diss.

When Jay Z was named Glastonbury headliner in 2008, Noel Gallagher suggested a hip-hop act shouldn't have topped the bill. Kanye West headlined the mammoth British fest last month, and the Oasis guitarist actually admitted to enjoying it -- for 30 minutes, at least.

Glastonbury 2015: Kanye West's Set Interrupted by Stage Crasher

Check out the interview with NME below:

"For 30 minutes, I thought, 'Wow, this is f---ing truly amazing.' And then, like most hip-hop gigs, after 45 minutes…" Gallagher broke into a slow hand clap. "Want something else now."

What's the Story? Noel and Liam Gallagher Could Reunite Oasis

Well, he went from completely rejecting the genre seven years ago to admitting to enjoying it for a half-hour. Progress!

All this comes after a pre-fest petition demanded West's removal in favor of a more "rock act" and the actual performance being interrupted by a corny comedian who claimed to be acting on the petition's behalf. 

Aside from the "most hip-hop gigs" line, Gallagher also threw some random shade at deadmau5. He opens the video with, "Hello, this is deadmau5 without the stupid fucking hat."
