What haunts Eminem? According to the new music video for “The Monster,” Em is most afraid of himself.

Thanksgiving is just TWO days away, and the VH1 team has one thing on the mind: FOOD. Okay, and music too. Whether your favorite T-Day treat is sweet potato mash (and y’all know it’s gotta have that marshmallow topping deliciousness) or a perfectly basted leg o’ turkey, we know you love this foodie day as much as we do. Thus, in honor of this feast-ivity, we’ve created a list of our favorite bands and solo artists who have names inspired by food and the delightful process of munching and noshing.

But I won’t give them away, I’ll let you sort through our menu. Heh, I mean… gallery. So grab a napkin and some utensils and check out 30 Musicians Who’ve Named Themselves After Food! It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
