"Pretend To Be" is one of the thirty "close to final form" songs from the Minutes To Midnight album sessions. It is unknown if it is the "seventeenth completed song" from the Minutes To Midnight sessions but it is unlikely since it has the 2008 date. The band, through the Linkin Park station on A.P.E. Radio, has said "Pretend To Be" originated from a Minutes To Midnight demo but they went back and re-recorded it in 2008. The song has an interesting, small breakdown at the end that takes it down to just Rob and Phoenix, before building back up to end the track.

The song was first released when LPU X launched on August 18, 2010 as a part of the A Decade Underground compilation and was then also released on the LP Underground X CD.


Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
