Day 42 - Eminem - "Not Afraid" (NSFW)



My son tells me this is the song of the summer and the best song he's heard all year. I can't say I agree, but I might if I was 13. No matter where you stand on Eminem, the guy has a real gift for wordplay and "Not Afraid" is as anthemic as anything I've heard from the new Arcade Fire. And for those who think Eminem is not a pop culture force of nature, this video has been on youtube for 3 weeks and has over 28 million views.

yikes!!! An anthem for the summer. I'm in! An anthem for the Green Revolution! That is revolting against tar balls rolling on to white sandy beaches. Is he there yet? Or just likes to hear the F-word?
