Starkill Cover Foo Fighters’ “The Pretender”

Starkill have shared their cover of Foo Fighters’ “The Pretender.“ You can find an official video for that below;

Vocalist/guitarist Parker Jameson commented:

“Foo Fighters have long been one of our favorite groups of all time, and we’ve long considered doing a cover or interpretation of one of their tracks. ‘The Pretender‘ is one of those instantly recognizable rock anthems, and we decided to bring together various aspects from both the original and other versions we had heard to form a cohesive, more metal-centric cover.

We’ve always been a band to straddle, combine, and question subgenre stereotypes and what is or isn’t “allowed” in metal, so we thought the idea of combining rock, shred, orchestration, and crazy drums made perfect sense for us. To me, the song is about standing your ground and staying true to who you are.

We got this idea together of mimicking the original Pretender video, but replacing the riot police with metalheads of all sorts, showcasing that no matter what your preferred subgenre is, music brings people together.”
