OK, Oasis do it occasionally. But I don't blame them, a band who wanted mass appeal anywhere they went has to have a few reference points to get the less adventurous among us who'd condemn them as "student crap innit" excited. The world needs to move on from them as much as it needs to move on from the cliched Western/Islamic conflict, though.
Every iconic nineties guitar band - i.e. Nirvana, Pulp, Elastica (not Radiohead really, seriously guys) - had to occasionally beg, steal and borrow from the past because the worst excesses of the previous decade were based in pushing music too far ahead of its time, into some kind of electronic "My Little Pony in space" dystopia. But it seemed to have been done innocently, compared to, say, Green Day, who blatantly steal from Blondie, Bryan Adams, Motley Crue, Petula Clark (!), Korean folk songs et al to add a bit of notoriety to themselves when they're about as punk as Maroon 5. And like Maroon 5, they prostitute themselves endlessly to angsty teenage girls.
