Eminem’s ‘Berzerk’ Is the New Sound of ‘Saturday Night Football’
'Marshall Mathers LP 2' single's video will be previewed on ESPN
Eminem’s “Berzerk” will be the new sound of Saturday Night Football on ABC. For those not in the know, that’s the most watched series celebrating college-level pigskin on television. And sports are the primary reason television still exists, so all told this is a big get for the Detroit MC. His first single from The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will play “throughout the telecast in various capacities, including highlight packages and coming in from, and out of, commercial breaks,” per label Universal Music.
According to the announcement, the September 7 showdown between Notre Dame and Michigan will feature a haltime treat: a sneak peek of the forthcoming music video for “Berzerk.” That will actually air on ESPN, while the aforementioned program — full name: Saturday Night Football Presented by Windows — will begin using Eminem’s song when the series begins on September 14. MMLP2 is out November 5 on Aftermath/Interscope.
