The music community and rock and roll fans everywhere were mourning the loss of a legend last week when we lost the great Tom Petty

Petty was from Gainesville, Florida, the home of the University of Florida Gators. During the Gators' game on Saturday against LSU, one of Petty's most popular songs "I Won't Back Down" came on before the fourth quarter.

The whole stadium, in unison, joined together in song and it was beautiful.

For one moment everyone forgot about rivalries, politics or recent horrifying events and came together to honor Petty.

The Gators weren't the only ones using "I Won't Back Down" to inspire people Saturday, Jason Aldean also performedthe hit on Saturday Night Live!
