Background[]

Although it has never been released as a single, it has charted on a few occasions when other Eminem albums have been released.[1] In 2012 it was certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for digital sales of 2,000,000 copies in the United States.[2] In 2018 it was certified quintuple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for digital sales of 5,000,000 copies in the United States.[3]

In popular culture[]

When Eminem's single "Shake That" (also featuring Nate Dogg) was released in 2006, several Eminem songs re-charted that same week, including "'Till I Collapse". It charted in the United Kingdom at number 192 on 15 April 2006.[1] In 2008, it appeared in HBO's Oscar de la Hoya – Manny Pacquiao 24/7.

In 2009, it was used in an advert for the then-upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It raised digital download sales of the song worldwide considerably,[4] but in Britain the song sold so many copies after the advert aired that it re-charted that week (21 November 2009) at number 73, a new peak. Shane Mosley used this song as an entrance theme with his bout with Floyd Mayweather as did Shane Carwin for his bout against Junior dos Santos. Major League Baseball pitcher Jesse Litsch used the song as his entrance music during the 2011 season.[5] The song has also been used in the crs of the Season 8 premiere of Entourage. It was also used in September 2011 in the trailer and soundtrack for the film Real Steel, and in trailers and TV spots for the Oliver Stone-directed film Savages. During the 2013–14 NBA season, the song was used during the Brooklyn Nets' team introductions.
