Another good song (1989).  Today at a football game in the University of Florida stadium in Gainesville, 90,000+ fans sang this song in tribute.  (Twitter video clip in that link--Unmute it.)  Tom Petty was from Gainesville and worked as a groundskeeper at the university in his early days.  ~z

Nice song, but it was never a Heartbreakers song and if you look at his band in the video you'll notice some familar non-Heartbreakers.

Thanks for sleuthing this one out for us Ringangleclaw.  I was just focused on Tom Petty when I put that up.  I did remember thinking there were some familiar faces.  Looking at the Wikipedia entry I see this about the music video:  The music video, directed by David Leland, was shot on March 22 and 23, 1989 on a sound stage at Pinewood Studios and released on April 24, 1989. Traveling Wilburys bandmates George Harrison and Jeff Lynne appear in the video. Mike Campbell and Harrison's former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr are also featured in the video[5] along with George's famous painted Stratocaster "Rocky" being played by Campbell. Starr is depicted in the video as playing the drums on the song, though in reality, drumming was performed by Phil Jones.
And quote:

"I Won't Back Down" is a song by American rock musician Tom Petty. It was released in April 1989 as the lead single from his first solo album, Full Moon Fever. The song was written by Petty and Jeff Lynne, his writing partner for the album. It reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Album Rock Tracks chart for five weeks, starting the album's road to multi-platinum status.

So whoever posted the video on Vimeo in December, 2009 titled it incorrectly. Maybe they should retitle it Tom Petty and Friends--I Won't Back Down.

Did you enjoy the stadium clip?  ~z
