Watch Eminem Perform ‘Stan’ with a Live Band on BBC Radio 1

Eminem didn’t just stop by BBC Radio 1 for his lengthy interview with DJ Zane Lowe. After performing ‘Berzerk,’ he took it back 13 years to perform ‘Stan’ — one of his most critically acclaimed songs — with a live band.

The Detroit rapper’s performance omitted the song’s final two verses — the one where Stan complete loses it and Eminem writes his letter. The performance is still a welcomed surprise though as he brings ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′ campaign full circle to its predecessor. Seeing him perform it with his blonde hair is a nice touch, too.

‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′ starts with ‘Bad Guy,’ which is a continuation of ‘Stan.’ Eminem touched on the process of making the song in his Zane Lowe interview. “He died in the story, so in the back of the mind I kind of had an idea of who could be left in the story,” Eminem explains, referring to the eponymous character’s fate in ‘Stan. “But I had to get the right beat.”

‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′ is leading the pack commercially like its predecessor. It’s this year’s second highest-selling album, and it’s recently achieved platinum certification.
