Here’s proof that Tom Petty’s music is going to resonate for decades to come.

Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down” was played between the third and fourth quarter of Saturday’s University of Florida football game against LSU in Gainesville, Florida, and the fans joined along in a rousing sing-along. Watch below:
