Song of the Day: The Pretenders - Back on the Chain Gang

This song was a radio staple when I was about eight years old, and I hated it for a long time. But that guitar line, Chrissie Hynde's voice - they eventually won me over. In fact, I dare say The Pretenders are underrated by people under 40, despite two classic albums and at least a dozen excellent singles. Now I count them among my favorite '80s band, and I particularly like that they don't sound all that '80s - no cheesy synths or drum machines, just plain old rock 'n roll.
