Everybody Taste Godfather: Mr. Tom Petty

Anyone who knows me well knows that I adore Tom Petty like no other artist. He popped all my musical cherries: first cassette tape, CD, concert, and even song learned on guitar ("American Girl"). To celebrate the oft-underappreciated legend's latest release—the awesomely heavy and riff-tastic, Mike Campbell-centered Mojo—here's one of my all-time favorite Petty b-sides and a few fun covers.

Tom Petty - "Trailer" (from Playback)

Justons Stens & Seth Kauffman - "Don't Come Around Here No More"
Kings of Convenience - "Free Fallin"
Dawn Landes - "I Won't Back Down"
The Gaslight Anthem - "American Girl"
Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett - "Listen To Her Heart"

Shit quality, but still fun:
Drive By Truckers - "Rebels"
Bright Eyes & The Felice Brothers - "Walls"
