After Bill Clinton’s rabble-rousing speech at the DNC Wednesday night, people immediately jumped on their various social media accounts to let their voices be heard. Among them, some of the most influential voices in the cultual landscape – celebrities. They ranged from the humorous to the conformist, but one voice was heard above all others, Mr. Tom ‘Freefallin’ Petty, whose anthem played through the enormous speakers. Via E! Online:
Obama, in his first appearance at the DNC, greeted Clinton at the end of his speech as Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” filled the arena. We’re guessing there won’t be any cease and desist letters coming from Petty’s camp tomorrow.
