In this article, we’ll look at the five best Eminem songs you should be listening to in 2023.

Lose Yourself

Released in 2002, “Lose Yourself” is regarded as Eminem’s most significant hit. The song was written for the movie “8 Mile”, in which Eminem starred and told the story of his character’s struggles to make it as a rapper. The song’s iconic chorus, “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,” has become a motivational anthem for people worldwide. It became the first rap song to win an Academy Award for Best Original Song as part of the 8 Mile soundtrack and also won Grammy Awards for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance – even more impressive when considering Eminem had only been a big name on the scene for around three years at that point.


“Stan” is a chilling tale of an obsessive fan who becomes increasingly unhinged as he writes letters to Eminem. The song was released in 2000 and featured a haunting chorus from Dido’s “Thank You.” “Stan” is considered one of Eminem’s most powerful songs, as it deals with fame, obsession, and mental health themes. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest story-telling songs of all time, with the narrative switching between the obsessive fan and Eminem, detailing a one-sided relationship ending in tragedy. Eminem, when asked about the story behind ‘Stan,’ said that while it’s not necessarily directly factual, it is an accumulation of experience he’s had with obsessed fans throughout his career.

The Real Slim Shady

“The Real Slim Shady” is one of Eminem’s most recognizable songs. The track was released in 2000 on his classic album, The Marshall Mathers LP, and features Eminem’s signature satirical humor. The song was a massive commercial success, reaching the top of the charts in multiple countries. The track is one of the defining songs for Eminem as an artist and is a scathing commentary on the music industry and how disruptive he knows his career has been thus far.

Without Me

“Without Me” was released in 2002 as the lead single from Eminem’s album “The Eminem Show.” The song features a catchy chorus, a driving beat, and Eminem’s classic humor. The track was a commercial success, reaching the top of the charts in multiple countries. “Without Me” is still considered one of Eminem’s most iconic hits, with the track accompanying Eminems catchy lyrics being one of the most recognizable in rap history.

My Name Is

“My Name Is” was Eminem’s breakthrough hit, produced by none other than DR Dre and released in 1999. The song’s catchy chorus and clever lyrics quickly caught the attention of the music industry, and the track became an instant classic. The song was released as a single around a month before the “Slim Shady LP” – the major-label debut album that catapulted Eminem to success. “My Name Is” introduced Eminem to a global audience and set the stage for his future success.

Honorable mentions:

Bad Meets Evil – 1999

Mockingbird – 2005

Guilty Conscience – 1999
