Hire Pretenders:
Pretenders are an English-American rock band formed in March 1978. They have become one of rock’s greatest all-time bands thanks to a knack for releasing hard hitting, yet melodic, classics like “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and “Back on the Chain Gang.”

Their self-titled debut album was released in January 1980 and was a success in the United Kingdom and the United States both critically and commercially. It is regarded as one of the best debut albums of all time and has been named one of the best albums of all time by VH1 (no. 52) and Rolling Stone (no. 155).
