* TooSoon: In the Benzino diss rap ''The Invasion Part 1'', released in 2004, Eminem [[CrossesTheLineTwice tempted the fates]] with an [[RefugeInAudacity irreverent 9/11 joke]]. "But if you even considering takin' our label down/You better find our building and fly a fucking plane into it."

* MemeticBadass: Eminem is this to his fans, who consider him [[SacredCow untouchable]] and relish every instance of Em ending a beef with a [[TakeThat savage diss track.]]

** Also, Eminem is dressed up like Robin in the music video for "Without Me". 13 years later, the Robin of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' has a ComicBookFantasyCasting when he looks like Eminem in the similar look and feel.

* WeirdAlEffect: "Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?" is actually derived from the 1960s/70s game show ''Series/ToTellTheTruth'''s catchphrase "Will the real [person's name] please stand up?", used to reveal the true mystery guest.

The song itself contains a few lines that parody a couple of contemporary songs like "The Bum Bum Song" and "The Bad Touch", which have largely been forgotten today.

** While it was mocked for its heavy inspiration from Nas' style and its sales were non-existent, people who listen to ''Infinite'' nowadays find itů really not that bad at all.

While Marshall himself still views it as a OldShame, he did celebrate the album's 20th anniversary by releasing a remixed version of the title track.

** In "My 1st Single," Eminem suggests The Source would be so low as to find journalistic merit in child pornography. In 2004, this was a horrible accusation to make of anybody. [[https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/mar/09/gawker-media-trial-hulk-hogan-aj-daulerio In 2016... not so much.]]

* JumpingTheShark: For those who believe his drug addiction killed his rap talent permanently.



* LoveItOrHateIt: The reaction to his entire career has been this trope from the beginning. Either Eminem is a humorous, visceral breath of fresh air in hip hop, or he's an incredibly destructive personality that managed to get a worldwide audience.
** Much of his post-''8 Mile'' work has gotten this reaction. Either Eminem's drug addiction completely destroyed his ability to make good music, he goes for technical skill at the expense of good songwriting, or he has continued to put out good music from his comeback onwards. The perceived LighterAndSofter tone of ''Recovery'' and his tendency to work with singers like Music/{{Rihanna}} have also been very divisive.

*** Both ''Kim'' and his defense of the song become even more disturbing with the revelation that the song humiliated Kim so much that she [[http://people.com/celebrity/kim-mathers-eminem-nearly-drove-me-to-suicide/ attempted suicide after a particularly cruel performance.]]
