Eminem has gone way beyond Rockin' the Vote. In this last week of the campaign for the U.S. presidency, the abrasive, over-the-top rapper has stolen the show with a provocative, disturbing, and possibly galvanizing music video denouncing George W. Bush and the war in Iraq. The song, "Mosh", and its dark and angry video take dead aim at the hypocrisy and lies of the present U.S. administration.
"Mosh" may indeed represent a call to arms for the 'MTV generation.' The song bristles with the rage we've come to expect from Eminem. Rather than lash out with misogyny and homophobia, however, for a change the notorious Marshall Mathers points his fury at a worthy target, "this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president."
