The Top Ten

1
Lose Yourself
Well written, Has a Message, great sample. Fantastic song.
Greatest of all time.. The rhythm the writing the beat it just says it all the way he starts slow then turns it up like a bomb it's just something only marshall mathers can do all props to the best rapper there is or ever was or ever will be EMINEM!
This song blows my mind the lyrics are great it's catchy the beat goes perfectly with the song this is no doubt the best song I have ever heard
you Eminem you are the best rapper that ever lived
[Newest]"This should come under a different category: Top ten songs" This bro got it right. I don't know who it is, but they got it right. This song was probably his second best song he ever made. It just works so well with what you need. It has such a good meaning that gives you confidence to stand up and act now instead of later. "To stand up and fight, say something you might not like"-Eminem

Song tells a story, once again great lyrics from the greatest rapper ever. Its awesome how the beat compliments the narrative.
So sad for the fan
"its good to be the star but bad to be a fan" true
Eminem rocks he is the best of all
He is cool his songs are the best his lyrics are awesome
He feel everything
He is the best
It's just awesome, start with a lovely song "thank you" as it's base, AND the story line of song is touching..
[Newest]Lose Yourself and Not Afraid are good, but they are overrated. Probably because they were on the radio so more people heard them. But this song... Is amazing. It is lyrically genius. The story is sickening but so interesting and intense and the music is amazing and his flow here is amazing. This song got me into rap and it is definitely one of the greatest rap songs of all time. This is like a piece of art it is so mind blowing.

3Not Afraid
Super cool songs... Always gives me inspiration when I'm down!
The cool song for the fans who love eminem and rap songs see this song official video a cool song with the cool video. Don't really understand why Lose Yourself is on top because it's nothing compared to Not Afraid. This song is really inspiring. At one point in my life I liked lose yourself better. Now that Not Afraid came out it tells you that you can overcome anything. This song is the best song by Eminem, and one of the best of all time. Super cool songs... Always give me inspiration
When I hear this song all my fears get destroyed... From then I AM NOT AFRAID. TO TAKE A STAND EVERYBODY COME TAKE MY HAND WE'LL WALK THIS ROAD TOGETHER THROUGH THE STORM WHATEVER WEATHER COLD OR WARM LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT ALONE HOLLA IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE BEEN DOWN THE SAME ROAD!
[Newest]This should be the 1st! 🎢🎢🎸🎸🎀🎀

4'Till I Collapse
This song pumps me up so much! It eats Not Afraid alive! This song is one of the best pump up songs of all time (if not the best)
You know those songs that you have to listen to multiple times to get the full effect of it. I had this song on repeat for 7 hours
The energy eminem displays in this song is amazing - whenever I hear it it makes me wanna hear it once again. Without a doubt undoubtedly one of the best rap songs ever.
[Newest]I'd personally change this for my darling! Love that song so much, just gets me hyped! Must listen!

5When I'm Gone
How is love the way you lie before this?! Get real people where else could you hear rap like his?!
Raw emotion. It is crazy how much this song makes me cry. I used to hate rap and this song made me love Eminem.
this song is the best song ever for me between all of eminem songs. this song is a very meaningful song for me. seriously I like it so much. eminem is one of the best rapper ever in the world.
[Newest]This was the first song I ever listened to. It couldn't of been a coincidence on how the timing worked out with that. It just correlated with my life in a way that was so close it was indescribable. I thank God for creating Eminem. This song was his clear on best. It just has such an incredible meaning to it.

6Sing for the Moment
This song should be on #1.
If you've ever read the lyrics then you know its true.
Quote: "It's all political, if my music is literal and I'm a criminal,
How the f*** can I raise a little girl? "
The quality of the lyrics is just as good in the beginning as in the end.
Its just a great artist and I'm glad that he's still making good music.
Best song ever, He is the best rapper in the world and needs people to see that. They all want to talk about him but really they don't no anything. They didn't have to go through what he did. Haters have never been in Marshalls shoes to know that his music is crap (which its not) cause really his just rapping about his life and if you think his music is bad then if only you had to live the life he did I would laugh in your face because you wouldn't be able to live one day there.
this song should be on 2 in my opinion :: after lose yourself this is the next awesome track ::
[Newest]This song is CRIMINALLY underrated, it's so good. It's lyrically perfect and is just as good as the like of Lose Yourself, Stan, The Way I Am, etc, and it's much better than Not Afraid and everything of Recovery

7Beautiful
Awesome... The meaning is very good. Inspirational. Should be at least TOP 3... Eminem is yet the Best Rapper of the World.
Best song of Eminem by a distance.. it is made superbly... I love this song... Vote this to make it the number one...
This is it man... I swear

Who the hell are you huh? This is who you should be... It is beautiful
[Newest]It's just such an amazing song, I listen to it all the time. It really helps people understand that they should just be themselves and not let anyone put them down. After all, "Don't let them say you ain't beautiful."

8Mockingbird
Daddy's Gonna Buy You a Mockingbird... Man Heard this song like awesome times.. Never gonna forget a single word of it... On My List.. Its number 1. Love You Eminem.. Always have, always will!
man, I herd this song and was like love it! its like heart touching, made me think of my dad.
Pure passion and emotion, this is a serious song on a unserious album and is a welcome change from the standard hoes, drugs and money rap topics.
[Newest]I think mockingbird is the best

9The Real Slim Shady
So good! It will demolish Not Afraid and Love The Way You Lie this is what Eminem is about not the pop you hear today!
This song should be in number one position. It's hilarious. This one made him known to the world, remember?.
The greatest and funniest eminem song of all time! I don't know how Eminem is so funny, even in 8 Mile he is hilarious!
[Newest]It is the bomb

10The Way I Am
This is song is just so emotionally raw. This album is by far his best. Don't know why the singles from his new album are in top 10. This is pure Eminem at his greatest. No featured singers like Rhianna or Lil Wayne, to interrupt the power this song depicts.
How is this song behind love the way you lie?! That makes no sense at all. True Em fans know that this song deserves to be in the top 3 at least.
I know right? Love The Way You Lie is a cool song but people like it only because it's mainstream. The Way I Am is one of the best rap songs ever, not just Eminem songs.
C'mon man this should be at least included in the top ten!
[Newest]The best song ever

The Contenders

11Rap God
6minutes of rapping and not just normal rapping. No, it's Marshall Mathers. This is the best rap ever made in the history of rap. 7million views in 1 day on youtube, that is something. If we could all just vote for this song, that would be great. And he is not the king, he is the God.
Guys you have got to vote for this. Marshall Mathers is a genius. 6 minutes of the same continuous flow, no one can rap like this. I know this song is only low because it's a new release, but we have got to get this in the top 5. Eminem has returned, with a mix of Marshall and the return of Slim Shady has made an appearance on this new album. I can't wait.
Eminem truly is the KING! SLIM SHADY IS BACK PEOPLE!
[Newest]Must be number 1

12Love The Way You Lie
One of the BEST, the 3rd stanza just takes your emotions to a whole new level
Very emotional and strong song about a difficult relationship.

"Maybe this is what happens when a tornado meets a volcano... "

The love, pain, anger, and strong emotions of this song makes it my favourite. (Rihanna also does a good job. )
It's a brilliant song. The Beats, lyrics, tempo everything is so flawless. The Best rapper did an excellent job once again
[Newest]I love the way Eminem raps

13Without Me
Lyrics are just amazing and music video is great. It's just classic shady having fun!
Now this looks like a job for me so everybody just follow me, and we need a little controversy cause it feels so empty without me.

The Most awesome Eminem song CONTROVERSY
I love the rythmn. so awesome. I've never heard song with that kind of singing to it. I never knew it came from eminem
[Newest]The sax in the background is just awesome. Favorite "Slim Shady" song.

14My Name Is
Wow how is this not in the top 10!
Awesome lyrics that'll make you laugh and that'll get stuck in your head constantly one of his best deserves better then this ranking...
Its an awesome song with awesome lyrics (you wont stop laughing) it must be in top 10 if not in top 5..
Its a very different eminem song and you must listen it (at least for the lyrics)
A way better song than this and deserves a better ranking (absolutely didn't expect this rank in the TOP10)
So a must listen song for all eminem lovers..
Can't believe this song is so low, it should right up with Lose Yourself!
I know right? People don't appreciate it as much because they see it as this goofy song.
[Newest]It's his debut song. Can't go wrong with that! One of the most iconic beginnings to one of the greatest musicians of all time.

15Like Toy Soldiers
Best most meaningful song I have heard. Brilliant rapping and beats his new stuff by miles
Absolutely incredible the chorus ads so much more to the song and its just so much deeper than most songs as he shares his frustration toward Ja Rule and it also has the best beat out of any eminem song. Straight across the best eminem song!
What an amazing song. His lyrics are so good and actually tell a story. This one is absolutely amazing.
[Newest]Why would I destroy something that I helped build

16No Love
One of the best Em verses ever. The complexity and speed... wow. He kills Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne gradually speeds up, and eminem just blasts the nitro!
HOW COME IT'S NOT in the top 10! Great song.. Great lyrics.. Simply epic!
[Newest]No love is one of the best songs. I really like how Eminem raps

17Space Bound
In my opinion, better than Love the Way You Lie. Definitely shows that Em is still the king. I can relate to this song so much.
Man. This song is my favourite of all time. So much emotion. You could easily hear em's heartbeat.
Really touching song! Should be listed in the top TEN! Can't stop listening to it. Vote GUYS
[Newest]The best one is actually Space Bound :')

18Cleanin' Out My Closet
such a good meaning and it's so deep... I don't like his new album as much as his old ones but I do like beautiful

LYmetal

It is a great song. Expresses Eminem's enraging past.
So good that it should at least be in the top 10.
The beats and the tune of it especially at the end of each stanza is awesome!
Love you Eminem...
The sheer lyrics, voice and raw power that is produced all throughout the song are just wicked! This is basically the most detailed six minute life story you will ever get in your life, that's for thirty nine years of Eminem's life anyway. The video to this song also makes a big statement and slightly underrated and just needs a bit more people to realize how great this song is.

EMIN3M

[Newest]This should be #1, it's the most meaningful of all his songs.

19Berzerk
Slim Shady back this song is a classic. Might not have many votes cause it just came out but come on people must vote for. Can't wait for the Marshall Mathers 2. ^.^
Can't get this song out of my head. Eminem still got it bang bang
He brought Shady back with a mix of some Beastie Boys and 80's music, what more could you ask for?
[Newest]I love this but what berzerk means?

20Rock Bottom
Most underrated eminem song. The first time you hear it seems a little boring but after a bit its like.. Wow

awesomenessdefined

best way to enter his life. great eminem, great struggler. great song.
This song's going up now... It has to man. Just has to, most underrated eminem song ever. Just listen to it if you haven't and you'll get the point like rock bottom.
[Newest]I don't get why this song is so low, top 5 in my opinion.
