10. 'You Wreck Me'

Tom Petty had already been leading the Heartbreakers for almost 20 years when he released his second solo album, Wildflowers, in 1994. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album still featured most of Petty's backing band. The big hit was "You Don't Know How It Feels," but the hard charge of "You Wreck Me" – likely inspired by the loose, unfussy sessions Petty had recently cut with the Traveling Wilburys – has proven to be an enduring fan favorite.
