According to members of Trainspotting’s film crew, Oasis turned down the opportunity to feature on the soundtrack to the seminal 1996 film because Noel Gallagher presumed the film was about actual trainspotters rather than a black comedy about escapist, economically crippled heroin addicts living in Edinburgh.

At a press question and answer session reported by the Telegraph, Trainspotting’s producer, Andrew Macdonald, and costume designer, Rachel Fleming, explained why Oasis failed to contribute to the soundtrack.

“Danny [Boyle, who directed the film] is from near Manchester and he was very keen to have Noel Gallagher do something but there was a reason why he didn’t do it,” Macdonald said. “He came to the launch party in Cannes, but I don’t know why he didn’t do a piece of music.”
