Eminem's new political song "Mosh"

HAve you guys seen the video for this?

If you haven't yet, It is a propaganda based video trying to demonize President Bush. The long and short of it: the video has Eminem leading people to the polls from an apparant darkened waste-land.

I really don't understand Eminem on this one. What makes him the political guru? Does he even know anything about politics?

On another note, I think this video is being released way too late. The election is in only 5 days!

I really don't like all these celebrities putting their 2 cents in concerning politics. I'd wager over half of the twats being so outspoken in the election don't even know what the hell they're talking about...it's like they just want the public to view them as something more than a pretty face who got lucky, so they act like they're actually concerned with the state of things, when in reality (mainly just my opinion), they don't care.



...sorry, but I'm always questioning people's (mainly celebrities) motives. Yes, I'm very cynical

i love it! i hope they play it all the time from now until the election.

i don't care who says it, or how much they know about politics, it doesnt take a brilliant mind to realize that bush is the head of the most disgusting political party in the western world.

it's funny, everyone outside the united states hates bush and the republicans. you'd think that'd leave some sort of impression on the minds of folks who vote for him.

ah well, sucks for them cause kerry's gonna win on tuesday. if not, i guess we can all look forward to more wars, further trillion dollar defecits, and yes, a shitty economy.

Japan, Australia, and many other Asian countries are supporting him quite strongly. It's funny how everyone seems to forget about the most important continent in the world.


Regardless, that first Eminem single was completely idiotic. If I have to hear "Guess who's back" or Eminem singing/rapping about what his name or nicknames are again, I'll seriously complain even more.

these people have every right to voice their opinion as anyone else. it's up to you whether or not you agree with it. this whole "oh shut up if you're a celebrity" is lame. if i had an ounce of credibility, was popular or relevant to any extent, and of course was american i'd do whatever it took to get bush out of power.

it kind of defeats the purpose cos hearing it so many times, the implications are that he never actually left.

here's to eminem actually leaving.

Hmm, that song "America" from his last album (Eminem Show?) kind of set a prelude to this new song, so I'm not surprised, so it's not like a first for him to get kind of political with his songs.

Reagrdless of whether Eminem is in any position to do this, I think it is a powerful video. It looks like they are rushing the building to have some kind of coup, but they are really just going to vote. I was impressed that he did this. However, it seems a little too late, it should have released a couple weeks ago.

Oh, and U2popmofo, Australia is not part of Asia. Makes us Americans look even more ignorant.
