Shinedown

     Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida. The band was formed in early 2001 by four friends Brent Smith, Jasin Todd, Brad Stewart, and Barry Kerch. Though they have gone through many line-up changes, the band’s two main members, lead vocalist Brent Smith and drummer Barry Kerch still remain. The band has released three albums on a major label, all three of them spawning successful singles such as “45″, “Save Me”, and “Devour”.
     Metal mavens Shinedown first appeared in 2003 with the release of “Leave a Whisper.” The group made it onto modern rock radio thanks to the single “Fly from the Inside.” Singer Brent Smith borrows heavily from the Scott Weiland template of grungy crooning. Shinedown are known as road warriors, having garnered much of their fanbase through nonstop touring. Other notable bands from Jacksonville, Fla., include Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers Band and Mofro.
     The band is notable for having a song performed by an American Idol contestant; Chris Daughtry sang their single “I Dare You” during a performance. The band has formed a fairly stable fanbase and has had considerable commercial success in their years. The band has also become legendary for their energetic and personal live performances. Their most recent album, The Sound of Madness, was released in 2008 on Atlantic Records. Their debut album, Leave a Whisper was certified Platinum in 2006.

Eminem 

     Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972), better known by his stage name Eminem, is an Oscar and multiple Grammy Award winning American rapper, record producer, and actor. Having sold over seventy million albums worldwide, Eminem is one of the highest-selling rappers of all time. Eminem was discovered by rapper and producer Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre later signed Eminem to his record label, Aftermath Entertainment.
     An immensely popular rapper from Detroit, Eminem has amassed multiplatinum success and an enormous global fanbase. Eminem’s independently released “Infinite” tape dropped in 1996. On the D-12 “Devil’s Night” album, Em calls out Fred Durst and DJ Lethal on the hidden track “Girls.” Eminem has also hurled dis rhymes at Christina Aguiliera, Everlast, and Dilated Peoples. As a ridiculously sad publicity stunt, Eminem’s mom recorded a song lashing out at him with no-name rappers ID-X.
     Eminem is praised for his “verbal energy” and high quality of lyricism. However, he is often infamous for the controversy surrounding many of these lyrics. With the success of his highly acclaimed music, and its subsequent nomination for multiple Grammy awards including Album of the Year, critics such as GLAAD denounced his lyrics as homophobic and misogynist, while others claimed that it promoted violence.
