For the record, the title of this thread is horsespit.

I vote to ban this "elvisnews" character. :P

Its ashame AYLT did not get to no 1. But its great to see the :king: flooding the top 40.Has eminen got 5 singles in the top 30. Elvis is the king of the uk charts :cool: :notworthy :notworthy (y) .Sorry elvis fans but the uk fans are having trouble getting hold of the singles. Maybe if they were easier to get hold of AYLT would have got to no 1

Eminem? They didn't say if it was plain or peanut. Information such as this should not be omitted.

actually his lyrics - if you can get past the profanity - are quite clever and I like some of the beats. He has also charted similar territory to Elvis (i.e. I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley to do black music so selfishly' - his words).
But then he'll never match our man, as I keep telling my son.

It is not as much him as is the people who buy his CD's. There are many people in this world that enjoy listening to this garbage. If the public would stop supporting him and his music, then he would most definitely have to stop recording it. Unfortunately, with the direction that the music industry has taken during the last several years, I don't see this happening. I never listen to today's music. If I don't have a CD in of Elvis or a certain number of other music legends, I'm listening to an oldie's station.

No way is eminem a king (n) . The only thing his the king of is swearing in his songs.If he did not swear in his songs the younger generation would not have gone so crazy about him.Elvis would have easily have got to no 1 if you could have got the single here in the uk.These singles are so hard to get in the uk.I can't even get hold of Wooden Heart. :angry: :angry:I went into all the record shops and there was no AYLT singles on the shop floor most of the week. I asked them where they were and they said they were still in the stock room.How is Elvis going to sell any of these singles if there not on the shop floor.And they had all the other singles ( of Elvis) except for AYLT.I don't think BMG cares if Elvis gets to number one or not here in the uk. I think there trying to flood the top 40 charts with all the singles all at once and it's working.In my opinion they holding back these singles on purpose (n)

You have to consider the impact Eminem has on today's generation. His swearing and explicit lyrics could be compared to a certain singer's gyrating 50 years ago!
