Transcript of Mosh-Eminem
Denesha McDonald and Alex Frielander Freedom of Speech The Nation's youth need
educate themselves so they
can take action We need to stop risking American lives over seas There is strength in numbers MOSH Mosh is a protest by Eminem, strategically released on October 26, 2004 as a digital single, just before the 2004 American Presidential campaign to sway the confidence of voters in their chosen candidate, namely George Washington Bush. This song track criticizes George Bush’s "War on Terror" Campaign The term “mosh” suggests a violent upheaval of society since the literal term is to “dance violently to rock music”. "We gonna fight, we gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march through the swamp, we gonna mosh through the marsh
Take us right through the doors" Here, he encourages a rebellion and if necessary, violence "fighting, charging, stomping" through. The swamp refers to a very murky and gloomy place, a metaphor for the White House and all the secrets held within. "No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil" He feels that all Bush has done is a waste of resources since America does have her own internal problems like Racism and Corruption. "Don't matter what color, all that matters we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause don't matter the weather" He wants unity in the country no matter someones "color", something Bush didn't provided.
