In '09 Eminem did the impossible—he released what is probably his most shocking song ever. That's saying a lot, considering all the material he's recorded. The fictionalized account of child molestation and physical abuse was over-the-top ridiculous, but it still had people wondering if it was true or not. It's safe to say that no real-life predator is gonna bite the blades off a chainsaw, like the wicked stepfather  in this sad, sick story of bad-touch horrors does. These deplorable actions didn't happen to a young Marshall Mathers, but do certainly happen to thousands of unfortunate kids out there today. Disturbing with a capital D, "Insane" will stay with you for a while, the cartoon imagery full of ass-rape, felching, and tragic references to Teddy Ruxpin scorched in your brain along with a shrieking track that is the musical equivalent of the shower scene in Psycho. To paraphrase the hook, is this song nuts? No, it's insane.
