The world was shocked this week by the death of American music icon Tom Petty.
Starting in the late ’70s, Petty and his band The Heartbreakers, led the heartland rock movement, foregoing the, then in-vogue, dance and synth-heavy pop music in favor of traditional rock and roll instruments and working class aesthetic. Unlike other artists of the period, Petty was able to remain true to himself, writing pure, folksy rock songs that managed to cut through to the tp of the charts, despite changes in popular music. This greatest hits collection proves Petty’s longevity, with 30 years worth of songs that virtually everyone can sing along with.
