Oh they know what his name is.

And Eminem fans on Monday proclaimed that Shady is back after hearing Berzerk, the lead single off his new album coming in November.
Fans took to Twitter late Monday night to talk about it, many calling the sound old-school.
Wrote one fan: Like I've said before, Eminem is like a sniper, he disappears for awhile and comes out of nowhere with a new song and blows us away.
Others were slower with the praise. ...dunno if I like it honestly, tweeted one fan.
The singer teased the song in a Beats by Dre commercial shown during Sundays MTV Video Music Awards.
The guitar-heavy track was produced by Rick Rubin, who worked with the Beastie Boys.
(Listen for an unfortunately timed reference to the ugly Kardashian, Lamar Odoms wife, Khloe.)
Billboard calls it "a punchy, guitar-and-beats driven song which channels Joan Jett & the Blackhearts 'I Love Rock n Roll' and 'Licensed to Ill'-era Beastie Boys."
Rubin and Dr. Dre co-produced the forthcoming album, MMLP2, which debuts Nov. 5. It will be Eminems first album since his Grammy winning Recovery in 2010.
