The movie:8 Mile
The song: 'Lose Yourself', Eminem
At the height of his career circa 2002, Eminem decided to conquer the silver screen - and he actually pulled it off with his semi-biographical tale of a struggling white rapper attempting to launch a career in Detroit. The film’s standout track, 'Lose Yourself' became the most successful single of his career and a hip-hop classic.
Bonus knowledge: Eminem wrote 'Lose Yourself' on set, and recorded it one take in a portable studio while on a break from filming.
