The 111 Best Songs By Tom Petty

(* This is a slightly altered post from a few years ago.  The sentiment remains the same)

An American icon cannot be narrowed down to eleven songs. Petty belongs with the greats. Time and time again he has stood up to the record companies and won. Not just once...but many times. He is everything that rock n roll was and everything it should be. He has stood for artists' rights...he has stood against over-production. He blasted the radio industry, American Idol, and everything that is wrong with music today. He made a 4-hour music documentary against all common sense...and in turn made one of the greatest music documentaries of all time. And at the end of the matter how much stands up for or stands against...he backs it up making good honest music...that has only gotten better with time.

Rock on, Tom Petty.  RIP
