Because I HATE this song. That hook is terrible- so overly sentimental and corny. It just sounds like Eminem recording his complaints from a tape recorder in his bathroom. It doesn't mesh well with the music or hook at all. And Eminem ends with "bitch, I made Stan!" Really? Such a disappointment.

I like the ideas incorporated within the song, but hate the hook and overall production of the song. I also feel like Eminem could have done something much more clever lyrically with the structure of the song, perhaps have it narratively be about him working on a song and trying to fine-tune it against his own self-criticism or have a dialogue (like "Guilty Conscience") between the Marshall Mathers that has those insecurities regarding his ability to live up to the expectations of his fans against his "I don't give a fuck" Slim Shady persona. Something a bit more interesting than going back to the lazy kitsch confessional style from his Recovery album.
