Happy 60th birthday to Tom Petty! The rock singer was born in Gainsville, Florida, on October 20, 1953. In a career which has seen him record with and without his backing group The Heartbreakers, he has become one of the most celebrated classic rock artists of all time.

As with all DMDB lists, this list was determined by creating an aggregate list from multiple other best-of lists and factoring in chart success, sales, airplay, and awards. In addition, 15 lists were figured into the mix which were exclusively best-of Petty lists.
