This is it. He dropped it. Eminem dropped the muthafu#!@n bomb. That is the real WMD they warned us about. It doesn't kill or hurt; it just gets burned, imprinted in your head. That heavy dark beat has brainwashed me. Like a broken record player it just keeps looping in my head over and over again. And that angry voice, slowly and distinctively poring its flow, putting in words everything I thought about W., all my frustrations, all my fears. A voice my surroundings and I never had. The silent scream of the youth has finally awakened and struck hard and loud exactly where it hurts. It is not Eminem it is everyone together, finally given the opportunity to talk, to show each other that we are not alone in the cities, the suburbs, the villages, on the street. Just play it out loud and you'll see other heads bopping, just as mine has been doing all day.
Backed by heavy hitting graphics (courtesy of the Guerrilla News Network), Eminem's Mosh, the song and the video inflict the heaviest blow from the entertainment community to the (am)Bush administration. Many artists have spoken up (Green Day, REM, Bruce Springsteen) but none that loud, on that scale and that deep in the heart of white America. Marshall Mathers shows he is oblivious to accusations of artists using their fame to influence the public, shows he is not scared of censorship and the negative commercial impact it could have on his mini-entertainment empire. It is exactly this anger-integrity, and his constant criticism of pretty much everything (remember that Eminem made fun of Clinton and Lewinsky in his first video, you can't accuse him of taking sides now) that have allowed him to gain such popular support and build his empire: record label, clothing line, movie, spin-off records. That is a corporation I can learn to love and support. In fact I am buying my black hoodie tonight and the rest will be history in only another five short days.
Spread the word about Mosh, tell your friends, download the song, play it loud and let your anger surface.
"Strap him with AK-47, let him go
Fight his own war, let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our soil
No more psychological warfare to trick us to think that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country we're patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes, it's all lies, the stars and stripes
They've been swiped, washed out and wiped,
And Replaced with his own face, mosh now or die
If I get sniped tonight you'll know why, because I told you to fight"
Mosh, by Eminem
