The Pretender is a song written and recorded by the Foo Fighters for their sixth studio album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007). The song was their first single from the album.
It is among their most popular singles to date; the song reached #37 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #1 on both the Mainstream and Modern Rock Tracks, the latter on which it still holds the top position after 17 weeks. The song also won a Grammy for "Best Hard Rock Performance".
It is featured in the Foo Fighters DLC song pack, along with All My Life and This Is A Call, and is one of the few songs across all 4 Guitar Hero games to have a high score on the ScoreHero leaderboards for Expert of over 500k.
Kind of hard. The single player chart frequently mixes the rhythm (played by David Grohl) and lead (played by Chris Shiflett) guitar parts, most noticeably in the verses, which alternates between the GY chords on the rhythm guitar and the continuing R R Y R B R O R R R Y R B R RO riff of the lead.
