* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to rapper Kuniva of D12, the group Eminem was part of, "Cleanin' Out My Closet" [[https://hiphopdx.com/news/id.36084/title.eminems-cleanin-out-my-closet-originally-a-d12-song-according-to-kuniva# was originally planned to be a D12 track]] on their debut studio album ''Devilís Night''.

Added DiffLines:

* CutSong: "Stimulate". This song has since been released, but [[RegionalBonus only if you live in Europe]].


* ContentLeak: Bootlegs were leaked before the album was scheduled to be released. The album was released a week earlier than intended as a result.
* CreatorBacklash: Judging by "Headlights", Em's not too fond of "Cleanin' Out My Closet" these days. Or any of his potshots at his mother, for that matter.
* OldShame: Em admitted to cringing at "Cleanin' Out My Closet" in recent years, manly due to his more unfair criticisms of his mother's illness and declaring that he'd never let Hailey see her, especially after the two of them finally made peace. "Headlights" from ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'' is a more sincere apology to his mother.



* WorkingTitle: The album was originally planned to be called ''The Eminem LP'' to close off the trilogy with ''Music/TheSlimShadyLP'' and ''Music/TheMarshallMathersLP'', but Em felt that the theme had gotten old.

** "White America" references ''Total Request Live'' in its chorus, firmly planting it in the early-2000s.
** "Without Me" references Dick Cheney, how the FCC tried to take him off Creator/{{MTV}} (which has long since died out due to NetworkDecay and the internet), and then makes a series of {{Take That}}s to artists who haven't been relevant in years, specifically [[Music/NSync Chris Kirkpatrick]], Music/LimpBizkit, and Music/{{Moby}} (even stating the latter as being 36-years-old). All of this screams 2002, the year "Without Me" was released.
*** Moreover, one of the pot-shots issued at Moby was the lyric "Nobody listens to techno". It was pretty accurate in 2002, when ElectronicMusic was a ''very'' niche thing in America (to the point that American [=DJs=] and electronic musicians had to go abroad to find success). Come TheNewTens, where EDM has become the sound of youth and has permeated several different genres, [=DJs=]
are about Eminem's pet peeves again: people criticizing him hailed as the new rock stars, and his family troubles.
EDM festivals can pull in crowds numbering at over hundred-thousand. Moby himself later noted in a [[http://wtop.com/entertainment/2016/06/moby-talks-porcelain-bourne-taking-high-road-eminem/slide/1/ 2016 interview]] how that particular lyric would be HilariousInHindsight later on.
