Damn the Torpedoes is the third studio album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released on October 20, 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 on the Billboard album chart. The album went on to become certified Triple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Damn the Torpedoes is the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album we’ve all been waiting for - that is, if we were all Tom Petty fans, which we would be if there were any justice in the world, live shows for all, free records everywhere and rockin’ radio. Songs like I Need to Know and Listen to Her Heart from 1978’s You’re Gonna Get It and Refugee, Here Comes My Girl and others from this year’s model are bedrock - they will endure. An innovator or an ironist only half as good might be easier to write about than Petty and his middle ground. Believing in a lover and expecting her to succumb to temptation at any minute (roughly the situation of Listen to Her Heart ) is so crushingly normal that it’s hard to sell. But, for Petty, rock is neither a cash crop nor a code of honor, not salvation or a cultural neutron bomb. The Heartbreakers haven’t duded up the music with myth.

to success with their 1979 album, Damn The Torpedoes. At home, however, success remained elusive and The Heartbreakers only scored a major commercial breakthrough when their sophomore LP, You’re Gonna Get It!, from 1978, earned them a well-deserved gold disc. Though its defiant title hinted at these recent travails, The Heartbreakers’ sublime third LP, Damn The Torpedoes, released on 19 October 1979, served notice that Petty and co hadn’t just survived, but were likely to thrive in the long run. A refinement of the tough’n’tender, blue-collar rock’n’roll of You’re Gonna Get It!, the record picked up on the prevailing energy of punk and the new wave, yet it also featured an embarrassment of radio-friendly riches and was further enhanced by Bruce Springsteen/Patti Smith deskman Jimmy Iovine’s crisp production.

The third album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released in 1979, has long been regarded as a classic and demonstrates the musical and songwriting virtuosity of a great frontman and his amazing backing band. A mix of rootsy American rock 'n' roll and the best of the British invasion, of jangling Byrds guitars and Stones-like rhythms, Damn the Torpedoes was the album that took Petty into the major league and redefined American rock. This programme tells the story behind the conception and recording of the album and how it transformed the band's career.

Petty struggled to free himself from the major label, eventually sending himself into bankruptcy. He settled with MCA and set to work on his third album, digging out some old Mudcrutch numbers and quickly writing new songs. Amazingly, through all the frustration and anguish, Petty & the Heartbreakers delivered their breakthrough and arguably their masterpiece with Damn the Torpedoes.
