Media Studies Final
Part One:

This song is called Hero by Nickleback it is a rock song from along time ago, I picked this because it was from a good movie.

I had picked this song because it is a really nice song and makes everything a lot more intense.

The songs theme or hidden meaning behind it is that itwas inspired by Spider-man and has a vigilante feel to it. The song talks about taking action and not waiting on a hero to save us. This central theme fits Spider-man well since he has the persona of a loner and vigilante who likes to do things on his own in his own way. The song features a verse where the protagonist has lost faith in love because the world is full of killing. " Someone told me love would save us But, how can that be look what love gave us A world full of killing and blood spilling That world never came." This is a direct take from the Spider-man character since Peter Parker experienced the tragic death of his U. It is the lack of belief in a hero destined to save humanity. The man screams his frustration in waiting for such a hero and vows to bring his own redemption by holding on to the wings of the eagles. This is a term that refers to spiritual redemption through personal growth, or so it sounds anyways back to the point this man is screaming out to God because the love that is shown has only made more damage and that it needs to change.

I think everyone that has listened to the song had found it appealing because not only is it catchy but it was made for the spider-man movie and who doesnt like spider-man right

I don't think the music adds or takes away from what the artist is trying to say because it portrays it perfectly. the music video also proves that it is just as good and shows the meaning within the video.

In my honest opinion i think the artist had made this song for everyone to relax and listen to. for the kids it s a catchy song and for the teens to adults a bunch of hidden meanings that could vary, i could even be far from the real reasoning behind the song. i think he was trying to reach out for everyone to hear.

Part Two:

Favorite Rapper alive is by far Eminem, Slim Shady, or Marshal Mathers which ever one you'd know him by.

1. As a nine-year-old, Eminem was beaten so badly by a school bully that he spent over a week in a coma. His music has since been credited with helping to bring more than one fan out of similar states, including a twelve-year-old girl who was hit by a car in Northumberland.

2. As a youngster, Marshall harbored ambitions to become a comic book artist rather than a rapper, which explains various animated threads through-out his career, including the Dubya-baiting ‘Mosh’ video and The Slim Shady Show series.

3. The Slim Shady moniker may never have materialized if he’d pursued one of his pre-fame jobs as a cook at a family restaurant in Michigan. Still, you can take the white trash outta the trailer park, but old habits die hard: Em’s a Taco bell man nowadays.

4. Reckon Marshall’s turbulent marriage divorce seesaw with on off wife Kim mirrors the family unit’s decline? That’s nothing: his grandmother Betty Hixson comfortably eclipses those antics with five walks up the aisle. Nearly halfway there, Em’…

5. Despite a tearaway image and numerous brushes with the law, Mathers’ didn’t clock his first arrest until aged twenty, appre-hended for shooting at a cop car with a paintball gun. No word on whether the aftermath resembled a scene from Shady’s all-time favorite movie, classic gangster flick 'Scarface', but we’ll take a punt on no…

6. Another blond-bonces establishment up setter, Peter Stringfellow, shares Eminem’s birthday. Also born on October 17th are Fugees rapper Wyclef Jean, Ziggy Marley and the late motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel.

7. Recently re-crowned King of Pop himself Micheal Jackson co-owns rights in Em’s back catalogue, despite publicly pillaring Mr. Mathers for depicting him as a flammable plastic surgery-riddled sex offender in the ‘Just Lose It’ video. When ol’ Wacko and Sony/ATV Music Publishing acquired Famous Music LLC in 2007, the purchase included hits like ‘Without Me’ and ‘The Real Slim Shady’.

8. Moby bears no grudge despite also being on the receiving end of Eminem’s video nasties. “He is, I think, a really remarkably talented MC,” the bald-headed producer admitted last year. “If I was to meet him I would probably compliment him for being so talented. Some of his rhymes are really pretty impressive.”

9. At the risk of branding Eminem a hypocrite, however, he wasn’t so keen on parodies when poodle-haired musical Weird Al Yankovic came a-calling. Yankovic had permission refused to film a video for ‘Lose yourself’ take-off ‘Couch Potato’.

10. Adding to the list of musicians rumored to have attracted attention from the US administration, unreleased Eminem song ‘We As Americans’ purportedly nudged the American secret service awake thanks to lyrics including . Bush, not Obama, was the target of his ire.

His genre of music is RNB Hip Hop Rap 

Eminems music has always had really good meaning behind all of his songs. they have always made people think and give them a feel that you aren't the only one going through problems. a lot of his music people can relate to because a lot of his songs have him talking about not having anything and fighting to survive. he fought to survive everyday like me. it may not seem like it now but even just a year n a half ago i was struggling and heading down the wrong path but music was always there for me. some people argue with him being the best in the rap industry because of his age but Eminem is still one of the best rappers alive regardless. the way he raps is pure skill and talent, people only want to be able to have the same rap flow

Eminem is worth 190Million dol


[Hook - Rihanna:]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

[Verse 1 - Eminem:]
I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek
Oh, well, guess beggars can't be choosey
Wanted to receive attention for my music
Wanted to be left alone in public. Excuse me
For wanting my cake and eat it too, and wanting it both ways
Fame made me a balloon 'cause my ego inflated
When I blew; see, but it was confusing
'Cause all I wanted to do is be the Bruce Lee of loose leaf
Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam (wooh!)
Hit the lottery, oh wee
But with what I gave up to get it was bittersweet
It was like winning a used mink
Ironic 'cause I think I'm getting so huge I need a shrink
I'm beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep
Going cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
But I'm actually weirder than you think
'Cause I'm

[Hook - Rihanna:]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

Well, that's nothing
Well, that's nothing

[Verse 2 - Eminem:]
Now, I ain't much of a poet but I know somebody once told me
To seize the moment and don't squander it
'Cause you never know when it all could be over tomorrow
So I keep conjuring, sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from
(Yeah, pondering'll do you wonders.
No wonder you're losing your mind the way it wanders.)
I think it went wandering off down yonder
And stumbled on 'ta Jeff VanVonderen
'Cause I need an interventionist
To intervene between me and this monster
And save me from myself and all this conflict
'Cause the very thing that I love's killing me and I can't conquer it
My OCD's conking me in the head
Keep knocking, nobody's home, I'm sleepwalking
I'm just relaying what the voice in my head's saying
Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just friends with the

[Hook - Rihanna:]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

Well, that's nothing
Well, that's nothing

[Verse 3 - Eminem:]
Call me crazy but I have this vision
One day that I'd walk amongst you a regular civilian
But until then drums get killed and I'm coming straight at
MC's, blood get spilled and I'll
Take you back to the days that I'd get on a Dre track
Give every kid who got played that
Pumped up feeling and nothing to say back
To the kids who played him
I ain't here to save the children
But if one kid out of a hundred million
Who are going through a struggle feels it and then relates that's great
It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that
Straw into gold chump, I will spin Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack
Maybe I need a straightjacket, face facts
I am nuts for real, but I'm okay with that
It's nothing, I'm still friends with the

[Hook - Rihanna:]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

Well, that's nothing
Well, that's nothing


The message of theses videos are pretty violent, and deal with a lot of gang related problems. the similarities are that they all involve the same aspects of being a gangster, or head honcho. the differences is the style of rap some can keep a constant fast speed while others take it slow then fast or just slow. they are depicted as people of high power with no authority but do what they do anyways. the life style that is shown in the videos is that drugs are good and will always be good for you if you need them that they are easy to find. there is no popular culture shown in any of these videos just drugs nd violence. This music has influenced me not to do any of the things shown in the videos because it is illegal. it has no influence on me except to bring out my inner rapper.

The rap songs by Eminem are all mostly like the same style but different flows with the instrumental. they all have many different themes and messages behind them. all of the songs are mostly the same except the meaning of to why he says what he says. throughout his life it wasn't good. he had no good life really when he was growing up. everything wasn't going well and he struggled with his downfalls. music always had been there for him. it was his getaway from reality. it didn't take the problems away but it did clear the air to let his emotions get the best of his words. his life had struggled because of how he was living his mom was a drunk , drug abuser and someone who just hasn't realized they could do so much better without those drugs. that is why he got into music was to show how he could change his life for the better.
