These are the best songs on Eminem's album Music To Be Murdered By, ranked.

Eminem surprised the world when he released his new 2020 album, Music To Be Murdered By. The hip hop superstar's 11th LP, which follows the 2018 album Kamikaze, spans 20 tracks in length (including skits) and pays tribute to thriller director Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 recording of the same name. Alongside Mac Miller's posthumous Circles LP, Music To Be Murdered By is one of the first two major rap albums released in 2020.

Marshall Mathers managed to recruit an all-star roster of features for the endeavor, including top pop singers Ed Sheeran and Skylar Grey, as well as rappers like Royce Da 5'9" and Young M.A. Perhaps most surprisingly, the album includes a collaboration between Eminem and Juice WRLD, only a month after the late emo rapper's untimely death. The album's release comes alongside the music video for its lead single, "Darkness," a pro-gun control anthem which centers around a reworking of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence."

Monster
You get in my way, I'ma feed you to the monster (Yeah)
I'm normal during the day, but at night, turn to a monster (Yeah)
When the moon shines like Ice Road Truckers
I look like a villain outta those blockbusters
Godzilla, fire spitter, monster
Blood on the dance floor, and on the Louis V carpet
Fire, Godzilla, fire, monster
Blood on the dance floor, and on the Louis V carpet

With them benzodiazepines gone
Now it's just magazines sprawled out on the floor
F**k the media, I'm goin' all out, this is war
(Hello darkness, my old friend)


And I don't wanna be alone in the darkness (Yeah)
I don't wanna be alone in the darkness
I don't wanna be alone in the darkness anymore (Hello darkness, my old friend)

Here comes Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khomeini
Where's Osama been? I been laden lately
Look at how I'm behaving, they want me gone away
They wanna JonBenet me (f**k you), I'm unaccommodating
Man, I don't see why they hate me
I'm a clown like John Wayne Gacy
They call me Kanye crazy
Apesh*t, Beyonce, Jay-Z
And I'm back with Andre, baby
And the doctor's operating
But he never put no scrubs on from Snoop kid out to Shady
