  • "My Band" - Eminem (featuring Swifty, Kuniva, Kon Artist, Proof & Bizarre)

    For this track, Eminem finds time to make fun of his band and even gets them to make fun of themselves, clearly aware of the fact that, even after a multi-platinum debut album, most music fans have no idea who they are by name (in contrast to Eminem being arguably the most popular MC of all time).

    The beat is slick, the chorus is charming, the bridge (whose vintage vocal melody I assume is original) is great, the verses are on-point and the whole track just flows along with a comical, dare I say campy, vibe. It doesn't take itself too seriously (at least not on the surface) and that's ultimately why it works so well.

    Wanna-be thugs and hip-hop "purists" will probably dismiss it as just another "commercial rap" track, but I say it's genuine hip-hop (conceptually intertwined with a little rock-and-roll, of course) in the form of a major rap star (Eminem) using musical satire to bring attention to his over-looked rap group (those other five guys).


    My Rating = 4 (of 5)

        Damn good review. I also like Em's voices [to be precise he does 5 different voices on 'My Band']

        #1- The big-headed rockstar
        #2- The whiny chorus guy
        #3- The stressed out groovy[?] Brige of 'my band...my band'
        #4- The off key popstar voice or "boyband" singing [girl why can't you see youre the only one for me and it just tears my ass apart that you don't know my band]
        #5- The ever popular and most hilarious, 'my salsa'! where he has a latin feel to his plug nose voice.


        what would have made it get a 5/5?

          (#1) Better verses from everybody and (#2) that horn-like sound (the one that loops continuously thru most of the track) not playing in the exact same melody as the vocals on the chorus (that's almost never a good idea).

                  Well, looks like D12 be gettin some airplay on TRL fo sho.(This is good cause it usually helps record sales, not cause it makes you da sh*t if you on dere.) D12 may finally be gettin their due. It has been a while since people not into mixtapes heard from Em. So Em bein gone for about a year from the radio airwaves regular rotation will help D12 get a big push. This song is silly, poppy, light hearted, and perfect for radio.

                        Good review man, thats exactly what I think about the song.

                        The funny thing is, all the trl groupies will lap this song up, when this very song is taking the piss out of them.
