Eminem songs

It is really sad how people feel the need to accuse Eminem of all sorts of crimes commited by disturbed individuals, just because they listened to his lyrics - as if listening to Eminem songs is the sole reason for them commiting a crime.

Eminem also raps about this subject on "Sing For The Moment", a song that connects his thoughts regarding his fans, their parents and society in general, into a great lyrical masterpiece:

"They say music can alter moods and talk to you
Well can it load a gun for you and cock it too?
Well if it can, then the next time you assault a dude
Just tell the judge it was my fault, and i'll get sued"

And continues with:

"See what these kids do, is hear about us talking pistols
And they want to get one, cos they think this shit's cool
Not knowin' we're really just protectin' ourselves
We're entertainers, of course this shit's affecting our sales"

So ask yourself, who's fault it is... Eminems for singing, or these childrens parents for raising up stupid kids?

Teenage killer 'acted out' Eminem song

Mr Jones was murdered on New Year's Day 2002

A teenager who acted out the brutal lyrics of a song by controversial rapper Eminem has been jailed for life.

Former Welsh guardsman Richard Jones, 47, was found battered to death in a seaside shelter on a promenade in South Shields on New Year's Day 2002.

David Pallister, 18, of Ashley Road, South Shields admitted murder at a previous hearing and on Friday, Mr Justice Hooper sentenced him to life in jail at Newcastle Crown Court.

The court heard the teenager listened repeatedly to a track by Eminem's band D-12 called Fight Music, which includes references to extreme violence and sex.

Toby Hedworth QC, prosecuting told the court that Pallister's former housemate Kelly Percival told police he frequently listened to the rap track.

Forensic psychiatrist Dr Kim Fraser said as well as including sexual references, there was a "great deal" of violence in the track's lyrics.

Pallister had told Dr Fraser he had "tried to ignore" the lyrics, when he listened to the track after the killing.

The psychiatrist agreed with David Robson, QC, defending that "for reasons best known to themselves", a large proportion of young people were Eminem fans and there was nothing "unusual or suspect" about listening to the rap artist.

Mr Jones had been sleeping rough in a seafront shelter in South Shields when he was attacked early on New Year's Day, 2002.

Pallister disturbed Mr Jones, who had chosen to live rough, as he slept in the shelter in sub-zero temperatures.

He repeatedly kicked and stamped on Mr Jones' head, causing brain damage from which Mr Jones died.

The freezing temperatures and a covering of snow helped preserve evidence, including footprints, bicycle tracks and a bloody fingerprint.

A later DNA match delivered conclusive proof that Pallister was the killer.

Judge Hooper praised the team of detectives who worked in extremely cold conditions at the exposed murder scene and managed to preserve crucial evidence.

Passing sentence, the judge told Pallister: "You carried out a prolonged and extremely violent attack on a 47-year-old man who had chosen to sleep in a shelter on the promenade at South Shields."
