Hot 100 Peak Position: 9 (2009)
The "Relapse" single, which samples Walter Egan's "Hot Summer Nights," features Eminem throwing shots at pop culture over a carnival friendly, Dr. Dre, Doc Ish, Em produced beat.

18. "Forgot About Dre" - Dr. Dre feat. Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 25 (2000)
Eminem and Dre both take advantage of "Forgot About Dre," off  "2001," to remind doubtful critics of the veteran rapper's legacy and continuous success.

17. "Superman" - Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 15 (2003)
Slim Shady gives us a sneak peek into his prolific love life in the "The Eminem Show" single. "Superman," which is appropriately slower tempo, was reportedly inspired by onetime-flame Mariah Carey.

16. "Sing For The Moment" - Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 14 (2003)
"Sing For The Moment," which samples Aerosmith's "Dream On," touches on a familiar subject for Eminem ("The Way I Am"): misunderstanding. Em digs deeper into his thesis that music is not the cause of violence amongst young people.

15. "Berzerk" - Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 3 (2013)
This Beastie Boys and Billy Squier-sampling single is a throwback cut, recalling '80s-era boom-bap rap. So it only makes sense that Rick Rubin—one of the forefathers of Def Jam Records—produced it for Em’s album, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."

14. "When I'm Gone" - Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 11 (2005)
"Now show them that you love them more than us," Eminem rhymes in the emotional "When I'm Gone." Eminem sheds light into the strain his celebrity status has had on his family, especially his baby girl Hailie. Marshall Mathers' vulnerability rocketed him to the top 10 of the Hot 100.

13. "Mockingbird" - Eminem
Hot 100 Peak Position: 11 (2005)
Eminem laces the familiar "Hush, Little Baby" lullaby with an apology to his daughter Hailie for being absent at times in her life and the failing relationship between himself and her mother, Kim. The song is strengthened by a video that includes a montage of home videos of Mathers and his family.

12. "Shake That" - Eminem feat. Nate Dogg
Hot 100 Peak Position: 6 (2006)
"Shake That" features Nate Dogg and Em, on their sixth collaboration, taking a lyrical stab at the art of seduction. "Shake That" was  nominated for a "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" Grammy Award.

11. "I Need A Doctor" - Eminem and Skylar Grey
Hot 100 Peak Position: 4 (2011)
The respect and loyalty between Dre and Eminem is in full view on the Alex da Kid produced "I Need A Doctor." Singer Skylar Grey told San Francisco's WiLD 94.9 that Em's lyrics, which he recorded in two hours after presented with the hook, brought her to tears.
