Eminem and Rihanna joined forces for the first performance of “The Monster” at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre on Sunday. Wearing all white and a “Fear” headband, RiRi kicked things off before Em emerged through the smoke to deliver their chart-topping single off The Marshall Mathers LP 2.


The show’s 18 episodes featured snippets of more than 120 songs, including Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” in the opening credits. It set the tone for the show, but it wasn’t cheap. Clearing songs by Van Halen, KISS, and The Who—just to name a few—required a lot of paperwork and ate up much of the show’s budget . It also later delayed the DVD release. Fox removed most of the music when it picked up Freaks and Geeks re-runs to avoid paying extra fees.
