Here’s a Full Collection of This Week’s Tom Petty Tribute Covers

Tom Petty’s sudden death on Monday unleashed a predictable outpouring of tributes from musicians across the musical spectrum. In his four-decade career, Petty touched the souls of many, inspiring some to pursue music careers of their own. Many artists have shared their histories of listening to his seminal rock anthems and expressed how much of an impact his hits made on their music. We’ve already brought you videos of Coldplay and R.E.M.’s Peter Buck performing “Free Fallin,’” The National playing “Damaged By Love,” and Wilco playing “The Waiting.” And there are many more.
