Label: Aftermath/Interscope
Key Track: "The Way I Am"

This is the album that threw the entire world into a tizzy of Marshall-mania and catapulted Eminem to the echelon of Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Elvis. There's nothing quite like his brilliantly dark, funny and controversial, dissection of fame, fortune, family—and himself. Eleven years later, anyone who's ever heard the album is still a Stan.

Guinness Book of World Records-certified as the fastest-selling album of all time.
