Watch an Entire Football Stadium Join in Tom Petty Tribute

The Florida Gators football team has tweeted a video featuring their fans joining in a massive sing-a-long as Tom Petty’s “Won’t Back Down” blared over the football stadium’s PA system. The Florida native unfortunately passed away this past week, and his fellow Floridians were eager to pay tribute to the beloved musician.

This just goes to show how some of the artists who make our favorite hits can have a greater impact on our lives than we often realize. Nearly all of us have been touched by a Tom Petty song at one point or another. His songs had a distinct ability to capture the American spirit in song, simultaneously edgy and strong but comforting and smooth. It’s something special to see a crowd of thousands united by their love for a song, and by extension, the man behind the song.

Without further ado, here’s the beautiful video in tribute to one of our fallen stars:
