Listen to Foo Fighters’ ‘The Pretender’ from Heart of Invictus, Episode 2

While Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife the former Meghan Markle have to be two of the most annoying people on the planet (I can say that, I’m British), the Prince has done some amazing work with the Invictus Games, the international sporting event for wounded or sick service men and women he helped found in 2014.

This month, a documentary about the Invictus Games — called Heart of Invictus — has just premiered on Netflix and, along with the inspiring stories of men and women truly being remarkable, the documentary also features some utterly stellar songs.

Songs like Foo Fighters’ ‘The Pretender‘, which was played over the end credits of Heart of Invictus, Episode 2, “Invisible Injuries“.

When was Foo Fighters’ ‘The Pretender‘ released?

American rock band Foo Fighters released ‘The Pretender‘ as the first single from their sixth studio album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, which came out via the RCA Records and Roswell record labels in late 2007.

It went on to become one of their most well-known and most successful songs, charting in 18 countries including at #1 in Canada, and on two charts — Alternative Airplay and Mainstream Rock — in the United States.

The track also charted at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The track itself was written about being deceived by someone who, as it turns out, does not and never will have your best interests at heart.

Listen to Foo Fighters’ ‘The Pretender‘ as heard over the end credits of the second episode of Heart of Invictus in the video, and via Spotify where it has earned more than 665 million streams so far.

The inspiring five episode documentary Heart of Invictus is now streaming on Netflix.
