12. "Into the Great Wide Open"
One of Petty's most vivid story songs chronicles the demise of a guitar-toting "rebel without a clue" who comes to Los Angeles and gets eaten alive by the record industry. The song's Julien Temple–directed video starred Johnny Depp and Faye Dunaway, and Petty himself as everything from narrator to roadie. "One of the only times I've ever felt fulfilled by a video," Petty said. "I even had people coming to me wanting to make it into a movie."
