One of the most unusual, and heartfelt, tributes to Tom Petty happened at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida during a Gators football game. The entire stadium crowd of 90,000 sang, in perfect unison, ‘I Won’t Back Down’.

Tom Petty was born in Gainesville in 1950, and worked as a groundskeeper at the University of Florida before his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career took off.

He died on October 2  and Florida Gators fans paid tribute to him between the third and fourth quarter of the game on Saturday.
