Was Eminem's quintessential 2002 hit song "Lose Yourself" truly a good song, or overrated in your opinion?

I used to play this song back in the day when I was dunkin on 6 year olds at the playground. I was a tough guy back then. But now that I look back, I think that song was just ok. It was a good sports song, that's all. Am I rite, OT? Was Eminem's quintessential 2002 hit song "Lose Yourself" truly a good song, or overrated in your opinion?

I think it's a good song. Inspiring vocals backed with a catchy keyboard riff that is hard not to head bob along with. I like how the verse slowly builds then the chorus hits hard. It's fun.

Quintessential. This song has so much meaning to many people about life... unlike modern music with sexualised lyrics.

I liked 8 Mile Road more, but this one is good, too.

As for Lose Yourself, I'll admit it's not my favorite, but I can't deny how well it's wrapped/penned. Definitely a highlight for Eminem.

For as much as it got played, I never really got sick of it. I'd say it's a good song. Plus Enimem successfully predicted the Johnson and Johnson covid vaccine schedule years before it happened.

@Byshop: And here I was only appreciating the simple dance moves it had.
