Reason #1: When you think about it, Eminem's first single, "Berzerk," is actually a lot better than most of the other lead singles that he has put out in the past.
From "My Name Is" to "Not Afraid," almost every lead single that Em has ever put out has received a collective "meh!" from real rap fans. So if you heard "Berzerk" and thought, "Oh no, Eminem is falling off!" you're overreacting. The truth is that Em's singles almost never represent the rest of the music on his album. They're simply designed to help him climb the Billboard charts and sell a lot of singles. Also, when you put "Berzerk" next to almost all of the other lead singles that he has dropped throughout his career, it's clear that it stacks up pretty well to just about all of them. But if you don't like "Berzerk," don't worry! It's only one of the songs that's going to appear on the album.
