The Beatles"Rolling Stones" "Queen" Elvis Presley"Metallica"Rock appeared in the middle of the 20-th centuries and at once entered to light dancing genres. The main feature of this musical style is a calling to a society and disagreement with the habitual settled rules. This call is shown in complex, melodious sounding, and in deep texts, often political or philosophical, and in external shape of musicians, and a manner of their behaviour on a stage.

Eminem enjoyed singing since he was a little boy. Eminem made a band with his friend named "M&M" and they released their first album named "Stepping onto the Scene". After that the boys changed the name of the band and released another album. When he was 17 years old Eminem left his school and dedicated totally at his music. He changed the name in Eminem and started a solo career without his colleague. From that moment all the people knew him under the name of Eminem. He started to record many songs and very soon he released an album. It was very hard for him to make this kind of music because only the black people were accepted to sing rap but he made a good thing and in a very short time he became very famous because of his songs. Almost all his songs were about famous people from the world and many scandals about Eminem's music appeared in all media .
