Back on the chain gang is lyrically brilliant and sonically suggestive of the period, time and place you heard it first or the first time you truly listened to Chrissie Hynde belt out the lyric. Do you know another voice close to Chrisie Hynde’s vocals? How about the passionate sneer she employs to deliver the punch line on so many of the Pretenders best songs?
Back on the chain gang-ye pretenders then and now.
