* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Scott Thurston sings Music/RoyOrbison's lines when Petty performs Wilburys material live. While Roy's voice is pretty much unique, Thurston does a very fine job of capturing the feel and sound of his singing - audiences often spontaneously cheer at his renditions.

* AudienceParticipationSong: "Breakdown." He doesn't even need to sing it live anymore, just give the cue and let the audience do the work. On the ''Pack Up The Plantation - Live'' album, recorded in 1985, after the audience belts out an excellent rendition of the first verse and the chorus, he quips, "You people are gonna put me out of a job."

On "Learning to Fly'" he often gets the audience to sing the chorus while he sings counterpoint lines between them as seen here - [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p_f7Df2-oM]]

* UrbanLegends: His song "American Girl." Because Petty came from Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, the story goes that he based it on a college girl jumping to her death from a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Girl_%28Tom_Petty_song%29#Lyrics_and_rumors balcony of Beaty Towers]], the tallest dorms on campus that just happened to be right next to US 441 (the road is mentioned in the lyrics). Not true. Petty lived in Los Angeles at the time he wrote the song lyrics, he merely used 441 in the song as it fit the lyrics, and Beaty Towers doesn't have any balconies. There are no recorded suicide jumps from the towers during the years in question.
