11. The chilling “Colossus” offers a more intimate dissection of celebrity worship than Eminem’s groundbreaking, towering 1999 single “STAN.” What starts off as heartfelt praise (“But Tyler, you're my hero, I used to get bullied until I heard Radicals, the last part got to me…”) quickly derails into something much more darker (“I think about your face and I don't even fucking try to/ Wish I had a basement mitt for me to hide you”). All this, and a very reluctant Tyler still takes a picture with his wacked-out admirer.

Best Tyler rhyme—“Rusty”: “Look at that article that says my subject matter is wrong/Saying I hate gays even though Frank is on 10 of my songs/Look at that Mom who thinks I'm evil, hold that grudge against me/Though I'm the reason that her motherfucking son got to eat/Look at the kid who had the 9 and tried to blow out his mind/But talk is money, I said, ‘Hi,’ I guess I bought him some time…”
