This is epic. The University of Florida honored Floridian Tom Petty on Saturday as 90,000 Gators fans sang "I Won't Back Down" in unison.
Though Petty resided in California in later years, Tom was born and raised in Gainesville (the same city where the University of Florida is located).
Tom often cited his Gainesville roots as an important part in shaping his character.
We've got a few different angles and videos of this amazing moment for you. Let the goose-bumps commence. RIP, Tom.
