About this song: Pretender

"The Pretender" is the first single from the Foo Fighters' 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. In a 2007 interview with XFM, frontman Dave Grohl stopped short of explaining the meaning behind "The Pretender," but alluded its roots go to current political unrest. Grohl noted: That's the thing with lyrics, you never want to give away specifics, because it's nice for people to have their own idea or interpretation of the song.
