The Gaslight Anthem - "45"

Way back on “Even Cowgirls Get The Blues,” a song from their breakout album The ’59 Sound, the Gaslight Anthem were namechecking Tom Petty. This is back when they were more or less considered a punk band. And now that they’re just a festival-conquering rock band, it makes sense that the Gaslight Anthem would be sticking with the man’s work. On the B-side of their new single “45,” the band takes on the 1982 Petty hit “You Got Lucky,” doing it with rough precision and giving rock critics a talking point beyond the obvious Springsteen fixation. Shout out to Micheal_ for the tip. Listen to it below.

The Gaslight Anthem’s new album Handwritten is out 7/24 on Mercury.
