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!

Not in order, But there is so many more but I believe these here should be up the top definitely. These are by far some of the best songs he's made!

Lose Yourself
Till I Collapse
8 Mile
When I'm gone
Cleanin' out my closet
Space bound
The Sauce
Hailie's song
Marshall Mathers
Yellow Brick road
Sing for the moment
The way I am
Square dance
Goodbye to Hollywood
Stan (One of the best story telling songs ever! )

Some that he is featured in,

Forgot about Dre (Dr. Dre)
Drop the world (Lil Wayne)
There is more I can't think of.

Eminem best living Rapper.
Just love 'Em...

"You can do anything you set your mind to, man. " ~ Eminem.

Best by far. Because not only does it sound phenomenal, it tells a story. "His arms are heavy, Knees weak" This sentence describes that he is nervous for his first time rapping. And I would be to, If I was a white rapper. Then it goes on a bit saying: "You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime" This is saying how don't let nerve get you down, just lose yourself and live in the moment!

2 Stan

Song tells a story, once again great lyrics from the greatest rapper ever. Its awesome how the beat compliments the narrative.

This samples "Thank You" from Dido, a British singer/songwriter. "Thank You" was used in the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, and became a hit almost two years later after it was used on this.

Dido told MTV: "A hip-hop producer named DJ Mark 'The 45' King sampled the first part of 'Thank You' from the TV - and he put it on a beat tape, as they do, and sent it to Eminem and he used it. It's that simple. I got this letter out of the blue one day. It said, 'We like your album, we've used this track. Hope you don't mind and hope you like it.' When they sent it to me and I played it, I was like, 'Wow! This track's amazing.'"

I used to never listen to rap because I listen to the music in songs instead of lyrics. One day my friend showed me this song and I really liked the music, so I continued to listen to it. I figured that it was rap, so I might as well listen to the lyrics. This song tells a sickening story but the story is great. After this I decided to listen to more Eminem and I listened to the words and I absolutely love his music, he is purely genius. This song made me like rap so it is definitely my favorite.

A masterpiece, song tells a story and rhymes match and aren't random like most songs from other rappers. Lyrics are touching and the messege is clear. Beat is awesome and it also features Dido with, let's say, the chorus lines, wich match the song. Samples and SFX are also very good, like the pencil sounds when he's writing the letter and the car sounds, the intonation also matches the situation and changes depending on the line's meaning, something only a rapper like Eminem can do.

10/10 - My favourite Eminem song.

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)

There were so many to choose from! But this song seems underrated so I chose it. Very good flow, great lyrics, great music! And Nate Dogg just adds to its awesomeness. My other favorites are No Love, Not Afraid, Wont Back Down (I'm shocked that wont back down is number 45?! ) Insane, Lose Yourself, Fast Lane, SpaceBound, and I loved him in Romans Revenge, he got the best lyrics, although its quite insulting that he'd work with someone as shallow as Nicki Minaj

Till I Collapse is the most motivating song ever. The way he displays his anger through his lyrics is excellent. This should be in the top 3 along with Stan and Lose Yourself. Love the Way You Lie is only so high because it is mainstream and the people who don't know a true Eminem song when they hear it got for it. Love the Way You Lie should be "rock bottom" as Eminem would say.

The energy in this song is amazing. Much much better than Not Afraid and easily the third best Eminem song. The third para of this song is next to perfect : the lyrics too good, execution brilliant and is sung with passion and fire. Also it doesn't lose the pace in between like Not Afraid. Perfect song to pump yourself up and its effect is equal to 10 energy drinks.

4 Not Afraid

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

Super cool songs... Always gives me inspiration when I'm down!

I felt a conection with this song and I made me more confident. I don't do it well at school, or life. And this song made me more... I can't actually describe it, but I get a good rush from this song and it feels like I se everything more clearly (eksept from my spelling as you might se) and it made me think about the most important life qualities, like respect, honesty, faith, hope. And I hope I am not the only one (even tough I always has been) who managed to get more out of life than you should. Everyone need it, it can happen from everything, a person, a word, a song. And I know I didn't deserve it, but life feels more like it is worth living.

Best Eminem song ever! The reason why is probably because this songs inspires people who don't have anything or anyone to help them with there tough lives. A lot of people are following their dreams on this world and people will always tell them they can't do it. An example is what I go through everyday as a white kid pursuing the rap career, people tell me I can't rap because I'm white and white people are not supposed to be rapping but I follow my dreams. This song has helped me follow my dreams countless times. Especially when I'm feeling down and I feel like "white trash" because people including my family call me that but when I play this song I can't describe the emotion I feel because it helps me go through all the obstacles in my way and follow the right path of my dreams.

5 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?.

I love all of his songs but the flow he has in this song... Oh my god the flow is enough to just leave you speechless. The beat, just everything is perfect. My favourite rap song of all time this deserves to be at least top 5.

My list:
1. The Real Slim Shady
2. When I'm Gone
3. Lose Yourself
4. 8 Mile
5. Til' I Collapse.

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!

6 When I'm Gone

This song always brings tears to my eyes. I've never been able to have children, and me and my husband felt like giving up. After years (well, two years), of paperwork and applications, we finally adopted a baby girl from India. When she would cry, I would put on songs that helped me when I was down. To this day, this song is something that holds me and my now eleven-year old daughter together. She's been raised on hip-hop, rap and alternative, and it helps her cope with hardships just like me. I hope she always knows that she shouldn't feel my pain. Just smile back.

This is probably Em's 2nd-most powerful song behind Lose Yourself (his best one). But this is one of the only songs that has made me cry, especially at the end of the song. The lyrics are so meaningful, so relateable, and powerful. This is one of Em's most underrated songs. I guarantee you, no one will ever be able to write stuff this powerful ever again. Eminem is one of a kind, and he can never be replicated. Ever. I don't care how good Drake or Kendrick Lamar is. There will never be another Eminem.

How is love the way you lie before this?! Get real people where else could you hear rap like his?!

A lot of critics said this wasn't that good a song because it tired out the concept of Eminem talking to Hailie. But he didn't write this one to impress critics- he wrote it for his kids. The message is that, when he dies, don't mourn. Be happy whenever you hear his music. Know that he felt no pain, and that he's up in heaven smiling upon you. This is something that all parents would want their kids to know. But Eminem is the only one who can ever put it into words.

7 Sing for the Moment

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 is perfect (behind Lose Yourself). It's an amazing blend of rock and roll and rap that shows the more caring side of Marshall Mathers through the quote "It's al political, if my music is literal and I'm a criminal,

How can I raise a little girl? "

Shady's life is reflected in his music, and most people would not be even close to where he is in the world if they grew up like he did. This song shows who he really is. I bet most people don't know that when he was nominated for an Oscar, he didn't attend the ceremony. His daughter wanted to spend time with him, and so he stayed home and watched cartoons with her.

Sing for the Moment consists of raw emotion. This song is absolutely fabulous and really catches peoples hearts. A lot of his song also do this, but I think this one really does stand up tall against many others.

On a bad day, or in general your going through a tough time - you listen to this song and it just gives you them chills that strike down your spine because it's so amazing. It lets you know that you're not alone & gives you a lot of hope and comfort.

I'd personally say this song should be at least in the top 5.

This is exactly true, the lyrical genius and perfectly rapped and symbolized lyrics of this masterpiece! Eminem was the first to bring rap to a meaning, bringing real life tragedies and problems into music and making them something special, not talking about silly girls, parties and drinking let alone silly drugs. But if Eminem does use those situations, he would definitely make them into great music about how they affected his relationship with Kim.

8 The Way I Am

This song evaluates Eminem's ego perfectly. The chorus is really catchy and really let's you know it. I only know a couple songs by him, but I just apparently know that Eminem creates a lot of songs about his life. And this song is about what's going on and how it effects him, although I really only remember the chorus and the two stanzas: "Rock 'n Roll stations" and "The radio won't even play my jams".

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.

This is not a typical rap. More like a massive run on sentence. However it is amazing. I mean he rhymes every other word, great haunting beat and basically sums up the marshall mathers LP. So much energy and he keeps going on never slackening his pace. A must buy for any Eminem fan even one from recovery

Eminem at his finest, just venting everything he feels. The song is so raw. I feel like he was just fed up one day and recorded this song the same day, it has that feel, no fancy beat or radio friendly hook. Just excellent lyricism and anger, and that's what makes it so amazing.

9 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!

Although I appreciate that some of Eminems song will always be viewed as lyrically better and more famous than this. For me, this song epitomises Eminem's music and life. This is an incredible song about battling faterhood, with financial struggles and lots of other issues he faced throughout his song. The emotion he pours through it is powerful. You listen to this song and you simply are put into the shoes of Eminem. Amazing.

Beauty of a song... I mean look at the lines.. The best lines which I felt were :- 1- Daddy had a job, but his job was to keep the food on table for you and mom. @2-I sat up the whole night night crying. This song has touched my heart and that of everyone whom I made to listen to this song. Thank you Eminem for this song.. Imma great fan of yours..

This should be at least in the top 5. This, like When I'm Gone, is emotionally genius writing. The message is heart warming and pulls on you're heart strings like a puppeteer. The last line is easily the best and reminds you not all is bad with the little maniacal laugh. Reminds the hard life Eminem has had to face. Good on you Em you bloody legend

10 Rap God

I get that Lose Yourself was his first song and he climbed the peak of fame with that. I get that Stan is dedicated to his fans and is very well written. I get that Not Afraid was his comeback song to tell his fans that he is back and is gonna stay. I love all those songs but Rap God is totally different. If we were to choose one song that can define EM and that can represent him than RapGod is the undisputed choice. He wrote this song only to tell the world that he is the king of hip hop and will remain untill someone better than him comes which is not going to happen for generations. Lose Yourself is 17 years old and has been listened by most people that is why its at the top. Same goes for all other songs. But if all his songs were released together, undoubtedly Rap God would have been first choice of fans. And it would have been as difficult to remove it from Rank 1 as it is to remove Eminem from rank 1 of best rappers. So, don't judge the song by its rank. Just do yourself a ...more

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.

This song has is the latest in the list that's why it is on 10th. Had it come earlier it would have been in top 3. You want to know why Eminem is called King of Hip-Hop? lose yourself and every other song. Just listen to this you'll get your answer. EM made this song to immortalize himself and he did it. Generations later if hop-hop is still popular, fans will cry when they listen to this song and say why they were not born while Eminem was alive.

This song is truly a masterpiece. I'll admit that some older songs like lose yourself and sing for the moment may be somewhat better, but this song is filled to the max with six minutes of pure references and disses hidden in every line for all the real Eminem fans who have been with him for the years to notice. Keep it up, Eminem. Id love to see another song with as much creativity and depth as this one.

The Contenders
11 Without Me

Quite underrated one in my opinion + some nice jokes and touches about reality by Eminem and that makes this song funky, fun, special and maybe a bit rough at times. + When you watch the actual official video the atmosphere with Dr.Dre that yellow Lamborghini Murcielago and some other shows well how it is banging, and for sure for many people a pure classic and childhood music. I'm not an expert and I might be wrong but for sure this is pure gold as many Eminem songs from those years and period and very special from many too.

This should be in at least no. 4, I mean come on. The song is just great. How come people think Love The Way You Lie is better? I mean that song is more to the 'Pop' feeling.

Anyways this song is a very good song with very comedic lyrics and it also has unpredictable rhymes, In the beginning of the song it gives you the feeling that Shady is back.

Lyrics amazing, beats were also amazing, speed was also amazing, just one of the best Slim Shady songs.

Normally, I hate rap, but my father got me into Eminem. This was the first song I've really ever listened to by Eminem and I love this song. This is by far my favorite song by him. I could listen to it again and again, and I actually have. It's got great lyrics and the music video is just hilarious. He really pulled it off.

You know, Without Me was Eminem's greatest and the funniest song of all time! This made Eminem even more popular than any other rappers like Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and etc. It is one of my most memorable hip hop song in my life. For me, Without Me was proved to Eminem's fifth best song ever!

12 Beautiful

The message of this song is to simply don't care when people diss you, insult you or say you are this or that: just know that your beautiful and amazing. Which in my opinion is very important as some people think they're in hard times with what people say they're ugly or unlovable which is totally false! Everyone has their own type and everyone is different which makes them unique and special in they're own amazing way and this is totally what this song provides. The lyrical genius and beat, chorus (Wow the chorus is amazing, Eminem has a great vocal voice. It wasn't auto tune) All mix together to make this more of a powerful and bigger statement of a song.

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...

I'd say this song should be on top, the best lyrics ever written by eminem (also stan of course). Eminem is a genius and this song another side of him. Eminem just sends a simple message: God gave you shoes to fit you, so put em on and wear em. Be proud of who you are and never let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful.

13 My Name Is

Such a funny song. And what he meant by sticking Nine Inch Nails through each one of his eyelids is that he's saying that things like movies, video games, rock music, etc, can also cause people to become violent besides rap. He using the rock band Nine Inch Nails (really amazing band by the way. Check them out if you haven't) as an example.

His name is, Slim Shady. My Name Is is one of the songs that got me into Eminem. The lyrics, the chorus, this song is monumental. This is rap. This is Slim Shady. This is going into the rap history books. This is Eminem at full power. And just remember one thing, his name is Slim Shady.

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..
It's 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..

14 Love the Way You Lie

I don't know if this is my favorite song by him, but it's definitely the one I find myself listening to the most. I love it so much and all the emotion behind it. I don't even like Rihanna that much, but she did a great job with this song. Eminem and Rihanna just nailed this song. It's so good, and it's relatable for a lot of fans who have found themselves in the situation of an abusive romance. I think it's a really powerful song overall and speaks some very difficult emotions and lets us know that it's okay to love someone who might not be good for us. It's just a really powerful song and I find it to be musically brilliant.

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. )

I love THIS SONG! How not no. 3 after lose yourself and when I'm gone. Eminem is the best rapper. This is his best song ever. It should be number 1! This song is awesome and it describes all the current love affairs happening right now. This song shows so much hatred, jealousy, violence, offense, innocence, guiltiness and love. This song has love so strong and violent that its really awesome.

This is easily the second running number one Eminem song of all time, after Lose Yourself. 7 weeks at #1. That was amazing but in my heart it was supposed to surpass Lose Yourself's 12-week run. I guess this song is supposed to run about 15 weeks at #1 but didn't happen in the reality. In my heart, It was Eminem's masterpiece.

15 Like Toy Soldiers

This is the most mature and powerful song, that Eminem has ever put out. A lot of haters say that Eminem is nothing but a racist, misogynistic homophobe, but in this one, he takes on an awful subject in hip hop, about how rap beefs aren't just showbiz anymore; they could be deadly. This song, in my opinion, is what stopped violence in rap beefs. But if the song, wasn't powerful enough for you, look at the music video. At the very end, Marshall puts down the mic and walks away, and the part that always gets me crying is when the pictures of 2Pac and Biggie are shown. Two of the greatest rappers of all time, who could have gone on to do much, much more, both died too soon, just because of some ridiculous East Coast-West Coast bull. This is one of those songs that makes you realize that there's only one Eminem, and there's never, ever going to be another person like him again, no matter how hard anybody tries.

Like Toy Soldiers is one of the deepest and meaningful songs he has ever made. There is so much raw emotion in this song It's madness. And the way Proof plays the guy who dies in the music video, and then dies a few years later from the same thing, it's just heartbreaking. This is very much the best song in Encore.

This is eminems storytelling time at its finest. The chorus may sound a tiny bit cheesy but it provides a great break from the somber tone of the verses. Eminems most mature song, showing that he does have the ability to do a much milder track just as well as he does his more venomous ones. Tops anything from recovery, although space bound is pretty good

It's the best man. It has an emotion, it describes his story. This is great. Whenever I watch it's video it gains a sudden feelings to me and my respect to this song increases. Good job! Eminem!.

16 Cleanin' Out My Closet

This is an absolute outrage! This is EASILY one of the best Eminem songs of all time, this song is LEGENDARY! The rhythm, the beat, the music video, the chorus, the meaning EVERYTHING about this song is EMINEM at his FINEST! Should be in the top 5! Other underrated songs which deserve to be up there include: Bully, Mosh, Forgot About Dre, My Name Is, No Apologies, Rock Bottom, The Way I Am, The Real Slim Shady and We Made U. Sort it out people, the new album "Recovery" is terrible although Relapse was good, especially with Beautiful and all those dark unique songs.

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.

There's a quoted picture that defines Marshall's career. "Slim Shady makes you laugh, Eminem makes you think, and Marshall Mathers makes you cry." This song is highlighted by the last quote. Cleaning Out My Closet is synonymous with abused parental relationships, but there's also an underlying theme of love and hate. I love my mother but sometimes she can act a little more childish while I'm in my adult prime.

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...

17 Guilty Conscience

Talk about a duo. This really captures the struggle between evil and holy. For those who criticise it for being "offensive", he is not actually suggesting killing anyone or raping/having abusive sex with a 25 yr old girl, don't just hear the lines and get upset, understand the message.

For those who want to know which songs are the best Eminem songs, I believe this one is The best and most educating one. just listen to this and you'll agree.

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!

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!

18 Rock Bottom

Again I have probably made many people wonder " Are these made up songs? " " I think he discovered a piece of a practice paper on the floor" Type song, well its not! It's a piece of lyrical mastermind, his metaphors and similes in this song are bonkers! Eminem is simply the Albert Einstein of rap, not even rap the mastermind of whole music! This is just a great way to start getting known around. To be honest I did struggle thinking whether I should of put "The Way I Am" In replacement for this, though.

Let me give my review:
The song enters with a semi catchy and semi monotonous beat that does not have many changes throughout the song, not saying it isn't good but it's kinda monotonous throughout.
It kinda does that thing in music where it starts in this place and once the verse ends the beat kinda disappears. The song really is about the struggles of being broke and having no hope in the world. Marshal tells about getting in and out of a job, being excited over job openings, getting fired on the first day, and the struggle of not having the power to take care of his family and his children. The lyrics are very powerful and might even make you shed a tear, also the flow of this song is just phenomenal. The story telling is a great thing too, it tells his past in a very detailed way. This song is definitely 10/10 it has very few flaws and the flaws are really tiny things that don't really matter in terms of music but in terms of quality and "oh is this song gonna be as good as ...more

Great, inspiring, admirable song. The song is about being broke and hitting Rock Bottom. Eminem is one of the only rappers who doesn't rap about girls and drugs. This is a great song, and helped me get through being bullied.

One of his deepest songs, but in my opinion the best of all his songs and also underrated. People should hear this song more an pay attention to it. His best album is also The Slim Shady Linkin Park.

19 Berzerk

One of Eminem's greatest songs of all times. Such a big hit, surprised it is not in the top 10. deserves a way better ranking and I can't get it out of my head. The lyrics too are awesome.

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

This is one kick-ass song. Great tempo and and killer lyrics from the rap God. This songs makes me want to get off my ass and do something...

Can't stop listening! The song is spinning around my mind! Vote this and make it to the top ten! "Let's take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch"

20 Bad Guy

One of my personal favorites. Honestly you can argue for the final verse as his best, or at least one of. He's rapping from Matthew, the brother of stan who killed himself and his pregnant wife because eminem was late to respond, and just goes off. Matthew kidnaps em and kills him, but in doing so, eminem realizes that matthew is just an emotion inside of him, representing all those he ever insulted, offended or hurt in his raps from years earlier, and how all that was coming back to hit him harder. Pure genius. You won't find anybody else in the world, dead or alive, with the ability to do that.

The best song on MMLP2 along with Rap God... these two songs exhibit the two qualities that set Eminem apart... in Rap God his rapping ability is on show, while here we get a taste of the kind of storytelling that has made Eminem one of the hottest MCs in the game. If Stan had an incredible story of a deranged and desperate fan, this is a story of revenge, where Matthew (Stan's little bro) returns to set things straight with Em.

And that fourth verse. That fourth verse. Insane!

Just listen this song once. No, it's not like his other songs which pumps you or make you stronger from inside but it's the masterpiece in story telling. It's a sequel to Stan. Stan's brother Matthew Mitchell takes revenge of his brother's death by killing Eminem. No other rapper has ever done a thing like that. It directly connects MMLP to MMLP2. Utterly hilarious, juicy, mouth watering lyrics it has. You won't be able to stop yourself from smiling in first 3 verses. Lyrically it's a masterpiece, best Eminem song

Some people are too lazy to understand the deep meaning of a song's lyrics, just want something to jam to and enjoy the sound of, Eminem critics don't understand the importance of the words in songs because they are designed to make you think. This is immensely clever with brilliant wordplay. Who would've thought a sequel to 'Stan's would live up to expectations.

21 No Love

This is mind blowing! Some of the lyrics are out of this world! I am not normally a fan of Lil Wayne but when I first heard this song I was greatly surprised and inspired about standing up for your rights, your equality and how bad bullying is and the effects it has on your personal life, the video is inspiring and the song is inspiring, I am struggling to describe this mind blowing piece of music, watch the music video and see how impressive is this.

What the hell? No love is literally top 5 Material. WAY better than mockingbird, not afraid, and like toy soldiers. This song is extremely motivational in a neutral way ( a little good and bad), it shows how good Lil Wayne really is, or used to be, and is a very good pump song! How is this not even top 15? In my opinion Lose Yourself > No Love > When I'm Gone > Stan > Til I Colapse > Rap God. I have listened to more tracks than just that though.

Epic beat + awesome verses + cool chorus = this song!

This song is amazing and it should be in the top 10 in my opinion. 13 is pretty close though.

I listen to a lot of his songs and this is my favorite song by him. The amazing beats, his awesome verse, and the epic verse makes this song a masterpiece. Good job Eminem!

This should have been the lead single in Recovery. Great lines, amazing rhymes, incredible flow, flawless delivery and a great chorus all over one of the dopest beats I've ever heard. How is it possible for this masterpiece to be lower than mockingbird, beautiful and many other songs? Why does this song get no love?

22 White America

Eminem has so many songs that it is almost impossible to make a list and put them in an order. This is a track that makes it more difficult. Not even Eminem can do better than this again. You can feel his anger and frustration in every line he raps. It must be way up!

Really? 47th? Wow people listen to a good Eminem song this is terribly low why doesn't anybody actually listen to a good number of Eminem songs before they vote on this messed up list?!?!

The anthem of the alt right. With excellently crafted lyrics, talking about the hatred of whites, and our ever dominant struggle. The beats are great, and the singing is well done. Greatest hip hop song ever made.

When Em walks up to the mic onstage, clears his throat on Curtains Up and then the next track starts when he screams "AMERICA! "... goosebumps!

23 Role Model

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?

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.

This song is just insane. Amazing lyrics and sense of humor plus a catchy beat. This early Eminem Songs are the reason why I became a fan or rap

Best song, I don't like Eminem that much, but this song I will always go back and listen to.

24 Forgot About Dre

Should be 1 or 2. Way better than love the way you lie, space bound, or any of the newer songs he's done. in my opinion his top 10songs ranked.
1) Lose Yourself
2) Forgot About Dre
3) Till I Collapse
4) Stan
5) My Name Is
6) The Real Slim Shady
7) Guilty Conscience
8) Like Toy Soldiers
9) Rap God
10) I doubt this counts but Ready for War

This isn't an Em song, it's on Chronic 2001... (actually, just 2001). otherwise we could count ANY guest Em verse, and Renegade with Jay Z would be way higher.

It is no 11th greatest rap song in the greatest rap songs list. So why it is 24th in here? Should be at least top ten. One of best duo of rap. Shady and dre kills it

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

25 I Need a Doctor

Really touches the heart with its lyrics. How Eminem is trying his best to get dre back. Makes me remember, how we are helpless when the life throws the coin

Actually, a good contender for worst Eminem song. The tone of the chorus is such a tired cliche, as well as the lyrics. "I'm about to lose my mine, you've been gone for so long, I'm running out of time". Compare those to another pretty poppy Eminem song, love the way you lie. "Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, well that's alright because I like the way it hurts." It sounds pained, it sounds emotional. It describes exactly how someone in an abusive relationship would feel. What does the other chorus describe? It just beats around the bush with no lyrical direction.

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.

It probably says a lot when the song currently at #19 on Em's list is at #4 on Dr Dre's list (I Need a Doctor), and the song currently at #33 on Em's list is at #4 on Jay Z's list (Renegade)...
