Best Eminem Songs

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

What year was it during this song? - Gehenna

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..

Just one word - legendary

3 '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.

Whenever I’m about to do something that I know will suck all my energy out, I listen to this song and think to myself, “till the roof comes off till the lights go out, till my legs give up can’t shut my mouth, till the smoke clears up, and my high Perhaps ima rip this
s** till my bones collapse”

4 Not 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!

This song isn't that great. It's ok song but not top 5 Eminem songs. Without Me, Sing for The Moment, My Name Is, Real Slim Shady... are much better songs than Not Afraid.

5 When 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.

My first eminem song

6 The 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!

Trade this with not afraid

7 Sing 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 ::

Covers importnant problems, awesome lyrics!

8 Mockingbird

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.

His Best Song by far - Izalien

9 Beautiful

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

My favourite song, has meaning to me

10 The 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!

This song should be at 2 not at 10. This song is 1000x times better than Not Afraid and Beautiful.

The Contenders

11 Rap 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!

The one and only Rap god

12 Without 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

YEAH!

13 My 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.

14 Love 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

Rihanna did a good job on the song

15 Like 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.

Very nice song not too l oud perfect

16 Cleanin' 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

Pretty terrible, why is it in the top 20, oh because it's a single... losers - defmay

17 No 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!

This song should be next to the word "underrated in the dictionary." If every fan ever heard this, then this would be number 1, at least top 5!

18 Rock 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.

Best Eminem song ever, in my opinion. It's completely underrated. Great lyrics and beat, nothing wrong with it.

19 Space 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

Should definitely be in top 5

20 Berzerk

He brought Shady back with a mix of some Beastie Boys and 80's music, what more could you ask for?

Can't get this song out of my head. Eminem still got it bang bang

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. ^.^

Chopping up the riffs of billy squier and the production of rick Rubin make for the best song on the album. 5/5

21 Bad Guy

This song is by far the best on MMLP2, even above Headlights or any of his singles. This sequel to Stan is incredible. Amazing beat. Amazing lyrics. And the fourth verse is one of the best rap verses of all time, if not the best. This song deserves to be right below Lose Yourself in these standings!

"Headlights or any of the singles" Headlights is a single. Anyway yeah I agree with that comment entirely. - WonkeyDude98

This is possibly the most distinct song on the album. It starts off with weak, somewhat forced rhymes and delivery. However, that was one of the most clever moves Eminem has ever done because it is to show that Matthew (Stan's brother in the song Stan) is not an expert at rapping, and then suddenly there are a ton of callbacks that work (such as a line containing the "I hope you hear it" from Stan), and my personal favorite callback is the one picking up where the last song on the MMLP, Criminal, left off, making sense as it is the first song off of the MMLP2.

And then it changes entirely...

The instrumentation is heavier and more dramatic, Eminem's voice is rougher, and Matthew has become a figure of Eminem's imagination and he reveals Eminem's biggest fears, mainly with karma biting him back for his lyrics. This verse is so impactful, powerful, and well thought out, it has drastic replay value, and I will go as far to say it is the best verse in all of rap.

My ...more - WonkeyDude98

Amazing flow, genius lyrics, and awesome story.

Great opening track on MMLP2, 4th verse is one of Eminem's best.

What the heck?! This is easily one of top 5! The video is also fantastic, the lyrics are funny and it's actually a very catchy song!

Well, don't YOU want to grow up to be just like me?

Should be higher up this song is awesome

THis list is ridiculous, all you damn pop fans are ruining it. Can't believe I had to scroll down to number 23 to find one song from the shady lp.

23 Guilty Conscience

This is the best song ever! I love how Dr. Dre is like the angel conscience, and Slim is the devil conscience! It's great how they tried to outdo each other. Great!

I could not believe myself when I saw this song so far down it should be in the top 5 for sure. Both dr dre and Eminem do great.

This is supposed to be way higher!
Guilty conscience is like the best collaboration of slim and dre.
I love the way the song tells the stories of 3 men, and how their counterparting consciences come into being. I especially like the last stanza.
This song is just to awesome to be at 47!

How are beautiful and love the way you lie higher than this?

24 Forgot About Dre

This song is one of the songs that gave eminem the fame he has!

This made him how is it not in the top 10 I love his older stuff better yes this should be number 1!

Wow all I have to say! This is top three easy! Come on people this is one of Eminems great songs. Come on

Not really his song but I give it a 9/10 - Lucasbck36

26 I Need a Doctor

One of the few rap songs that actually conveys a good message--a song about a friendship. Eminem's verses are heartwarming and Dre's verse is just absolutely bad ass.

Skylar grey's part is great and dre in the end make it a song to remember

This song was so great. I like eminem sing his fast rap. With skylar grey sweet voice, and dr dre sing his rap.

Always brings a tear to my eye. I wish I had friends like slim and dre

This song is right behind Lose Yourself. The Beat is awesome, the lyrics are legendary, as usual, and its very underrated. Eminem at his finest.

This song is so amazing and underrated! It is one of Eminem's greatest hits! It has great lyrics and a mad beat!

Awesome beats... awesome lyrics... awesome flow... this must have been a lot higher at least above the recovery songs...

Awesome lyrics, better than most of the songs on this list. Should be in the top ten at least

Superb lyrics.em apologies to his mother very emotional

No song like this. This is incredible. It is catchy, soulful and mesmerizing. The way Marshall Mathers can weave words together like this is extraordinary. The way he forgives and apologizes to his mother is great. My favourite song.

His best song ever in my opinion. He touched my heart with this song, forgiving his mom and saying that he loves her no matter what happened in the past made me cry. Also Nate Ruess with his amazing voice made this song even better. So much emotions put in this song.

Nothing could beat this. EMINEM FOREVER. LOVE YOU EMINEM. This song is just unbelievable.

Eminem is The greatest Rapper Ever

One of the most lyrically brilliant and best flowing songs out there, from the hands down best (and probably smartest) rapper out there. This is Em at the top of his game, no doubt

So much better than anything from Recovery, this is top 5 material. Has the best punchlines in any Eminem song.

So my favorite Eminem's song lies at 23... That's a shame, I don't know how this is eve possible that this song is not in top 10! Such a beautiful rap with amazing and I mean amazing chorus, a must, must listen!

Great song from a dad to his child

This song do need some credit

"Awesome lyrics and beautifully executed"

Why is this not in the top 10? The amount of meaning and passion definitely reserves a spot for this masterpiece.

Best Eminem song after Lose Yourself and Sing For The Moment I think.

Should be in the top 5 at least same with forgot about dre. It's better than anything from recovery, just listen to the hilarious lyrics and his awesome flow. Listen to some real Eminem songs before you vote on some piece you heard on the pop charts

One of his greatest songs ever! This song should definitely be in the top five! Nobody listens to his old stuff anymore. That is when he poured out all he had in the rap game.

Great song should be around 14 th, better than without me in my opinion and I've loved em from the start

34 25 to Life

One of eminem's best songs. Great verses and shows a lot of emotion behind it, he doesn't just rap about money, girls, and drugs, he raps on a deeper level, really gets you thinking.

it's a wonderful song the instruments rhyme perfectly with eminem and the co-vocalist has a great talent. PLUS THE WONDERFUL LYRICS. That's all crap who is the singer at the beginning of the song

Shows great emotion between em and the business as a conflicting relation through some of his best lyrics which make it a truly great song

This is superb song!

Absolutely fantastic! You've seen me compliment this song before, so you know why it's a winner. Fantastic song.

Yo this is true stuff he is rapping about man. This is like his most passionate song on the whole Marshall Mathers LP cd

I murder a rhyme/one word at a time/you've never seen a mind/as perverted as mine. Sit the hell down.

This was the best song he has ever made in my opinion

The fact that this song is THIS low makes me upset. True emotions, probably his best song. And I'm not even American.

This song shows how funny Eminem can be. He is truly the best rapper ever. JUST LOSE IT! SHADY IS BACK SO GET READY!

Good parody of over-the-top pop and hip hop in general. I don't particularly like Eminem but I respect that he can laugh at himself a little.

Why is this song here it's been my favorite ever since I was 2 (knowing that's what it came out) this song in my opinion beats anything. It's a hilarious song with great beats and one spot with some fast rapping!

Surprisingly catchy. One of the few Eminem’s song I find really funny.

45 Infinite

This album put Eminem on the map and showed he had the potential to be the artist he is today.

This and any man are probably Em's best songs;
Its sad this is so far down the list, Em's music was so much better then than it is now

His first song. Without this he would be nowhere. All of this pop crap doesn't deserve the credit it gets. I can only name 7 songs on recovery I actually really like. On fire, no love, Cinderella man, cold wind blows, WTP, untitled and won't back down. Nearly everything after encore is warped by popularity. Except for hell: the sequel, that is epic.

That said, I can't think of a single Eminem song I hate. Only five or six I don't like.

Simple music just like stated. It makes this my number one Eminem-drug, shaking my head back and forth whole night. This is cocaine!

Complex lyrics + simple music = fabulous song!
Please consider what just wrote

This song is pure awesomeness and I think that Eminem can greatly express what he feels inside, this song is for proof. It's more than amazing, that's my opinion.

It's for Proof? But Proof was killed in 2006, I thought this song was a part of 8 mile and that means 2002.
