It’s hard to talk about classic American rock without mentioning Tom Petty. Since the mid 1970s he – mostly accompanied by The Heartbreakers – has been creating amazing guitar music and releasing an impressive stream of albums.
This playlist compiles 15 of his greatest songs. Doing this for someone with a song catalogue as large and iconic as Tom Petty’s wasn’t easy, and the playlist should be seen as an hour’s introduction to his genius.
If you like what you hear, we strongly recommend you dig deeper and investigate the rest of the Tom Petty catalogue available on Spotify. The albums Damn The Torpedoes and Full Moon Fever are good places to start.
