Greatest Hits is a compilation album released by rock band The Pretenders in 2000. It was only their second greatest hits in 22 years, but less successful than its predecessor, The Singles, released in 1987. It contained only seven songs ("Human", "Forever Young", "Night in My Veins", "Spiritual High (State of Independence)", "Breakfast in Bed", "Popstar" and "I'll Stand by You") not featured on the previous compilation.

The Pretenders are an English indie rock group around the American singer, guitarist and songwriter Chrissie Hynde, who with a mixture of punk, new wave and pop music (mainly in the eighties) scored a series of hits, including "Brass in Pocket", "Back on the Chain Gang", the Christmas song "2000 Miles", "Don't Get me Wrong" and "I'll Stand By You".

Pretenders is the debut studio album by British-American band The Pretenders, released on 7 January 1980 under Real Records in the UK, and Sire Records in the United States. A combination of rock, punk and pop music, this album made the band famous. The album features the singles "Stop Your Sobbing", "Kid" and "Brass in Pocket". Nick Lowe produced the Pretenders' first single, "Stop Your Sobbing", but decided not to work with them again as he thought the band was "not going anywhere".

The Pretenders Greatest Hits is a selection of 20 songs and their variously successful videos. Chrissie Hynde arrived in the UK in 1973, and after a period as the "Loud Yank" NME journalist, she realised her dream of putting a band together. Stop Your Sobbing" was a terrific first single for The Pretenders, debuting a voice that defied comparison or description. There have been Pretenders greatest hits collections before, but this is expanded with "Human" and "Popstar" from the 1999 Viva El Amor album.

The Pretenders' second album, Pretenders II, was released in August 1981 to follow-up success, preceded by the EP "Extended Play" in the United States in recognition of the demand for their material. By June 1982 bassist Farndon was fired because of his drug abuse and, two days later, guitarist Honeyman-Scott died of a drug related heart attack; Farndon himself died in April 1983 as a result of drug abuse. In 1994 the Pretenders returned with a stable line up that included Chambers again, Adam Seymour (lead guitar) and Andy Hobson to deliver four studio albums, including the hit album Last of the Independents swiftly followed in 1995 with the acoustic album "Isle of View". Viva el Amor, released in 1999, would be their first album to not chart in mainland Europe with the exception of the UK, Germany and Sweden; the album peaked at 158 on the Billboard 200.
