L7 - Pretend We're Dead (Official Video)

Alternative Rock milestone from the all-female band L7.

Produced by Butch Vig of Garbage.


"Pretend We're Dead" is a 1992 song by grunge band L7, from the album Bricks Are Heavy. The song was written and sung by Donita Sparks. The song peaked at #8 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks and just missed out on cracking the UK Top 20 Hit Singles, stalling at #21.

The song has a 'dirty' sound synonymous with the grunge movement; distorted, industrial-punk influenced guitars. However the song has a crossover appeal, that made the song radio friendly, even on conservative stations such as the BBC's Radio One. This is underlined by the immediate and infectious chorus, despite a heavy rock, punk attitude and sound. L7 Performed the song on the UK family friendly music show "Top of the Pops" and the Channel 4 late night cult pop culture show "The Word" - often seen as the antithesis of "Top of the Pops". This was never more evident than when Donita Sparks dropped her trousers, during a performance, revealing no underwear.
