Through all the frustration and anguish it allegedly took for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers to deliver their breakthrough (and arguably their masterpiece,) Damn the Torpedoes exceeded the promise of their first two albums. Thanks to Jimmy Iovine's clean production, the record sounded utterly modern, yet timeless. Few mainstream rock albums of the late '70s and early '80s were quite as strong as this, and it still stands as one of the great records of the era. Featuring "Here Comes My Girl," "Don't Do Me Like That," and "Refugee."
