Re: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were the GOAT American rock band
From an iconic song standpoint I'm not sure who beats out Lynyrd Skynyrd at least where ive spent most of my life(the south). Who has 2 more iconic songs than Freebird and Simple Man? I'm not saying the answer is nobody...im saying it isn't a long list. They just didn't last long with the plane crash. Id say their best matches Pettys best but he has a longer track record of course.
