Sing for the Moment (5:41)

Cover of The Eminem Show

From The Eminem Show and 8 other releases

Eminem samples the song “Dream On” by rock group Aerosmith. Joe Perry of Aerosmith plays the guitar solo at the end of the song, and Steven Tyler sings the song’s chorus.

“Sing for the Moment” is one of Eminem’s most lyrically praised singles. It deals with the themes of rap music’s effect on society and the misunderstanding that critics and parents have towards his message. Eminem uses the song to refute critics who have accused him of promoting violence to young people, saying that committing a crime is ultimately up to the offender.

He also explains that his music has an advantage to young people, claiming that his music is a relief from boredom and depression. Eminem’s altercation with a bouncer named John Guerrera is also referenced in this song.

These ideas are nightmares for white parents
Whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair and who likes earrings
Like whatever they say has no bearin'
It's so scary in a house that allows no swearin'
