  • Damn the Torpedoes is the third studio album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released on October 19, 1979. This was the first of three Petty albums originally released by the Backstreet Records label, distributed by MCA Records. It built on the commercial success and critical acclaim of his two previous albums and reached #2 on the Billboard album chart. The album went on to become certified Triple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

    In 2003, the album was ranked number 313 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, and 231 in a 2020 revised list. 

    The album was a breakthrough for Petty and the Heartbreakers. It was their first top 10 album rising to #2 for seven weeks and kept from #1 by Pink Floyd's The Wall on the Billboard albums chart. Tom Petty's response to Westwood One about being anchored at #2 was "I love Pink Floyd but I hated them that year". It yielded two songs that made the top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, "Don't Do Me Like That" (#10) and "Refugee" (#15). Thanks to the new co-producer Jimmy Lovine, Damn the Torpedoes proved to be a major leap forward in production.
