I dunno about that song specifically, but Noel has been quoted as sayong that the initial mix od DYKWIM was "like a hip hop track" (I think he means the mix as regards the drums). However they then went "down the pub" and when they came back turned it into a more rock-style version.
Personally I have always felt that was a nugget of truth surrounded by a bit of hyperbole as Noel was, at the time, pretty stung by the criticisms of BHN as not being a musical advancement for the band and was saying things along the lines of "Oh yeah, well I did all this experimental stuff in the studio but then I changed my mind and just made it sound the same as usual".
