31. Eminem: Lose Yourself

Found on: 8 Mile: Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture (2002)
Picked by: MT, WA, PA

Lose Yourself is a great song, but it's basically the last time Eminem was truly impactful in any way. And to think, back in 2002, I came dangerously close to declaring him the game-changer of the Aughts (a game-changer is an artist who revolutionizes the music industry; there are only five, roughly one-per decade: Elvis Presley, Beatles, Ramones, Michael Jackson, Nirvana). In retrospect, I don't think your game-changer can be someone who picked fights with the likes of Chris Kirkpatrick, Christina Aguilara, and Moby.
