Pretenders, the band's stunning debut album, was originally released Jan 19, 1980 on Real Records; and Sire Records in the US. This is the album that made the band famous. "A sleek, stylish fusion of Stonesy rock & roll, new wave pop, and pure punk aggression, Pretenders is teeming with sharp hooks and a viciously cool attitude." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic
