4. 'Southern Accents'
At its core, Tom Petty's 1985 album Southern Accents is a compromise between two ideas. It was originally seen as a concept album about life in the South, hence the title, but producer Dave Stewart wanted to give it a modern feel, adding songs like "Don't Come Around Here No More" to the mix.
Tensions were high during the sessions, leading Petty to punch a wall and break his left hand, making it near-impossible to play guitar. The final product was a mixture of the two ideas, but fans didn't seem to mind one bit. "Don't Come Around Here No More" became a huge hit, thanks largely to the trippy Alice in Wonderland-themed video.
