Watch The War on Drugs open set with Tom Petty cover”

Sift covered Petty's song "American Girl" in 2009.

Tom Petty inspired and entertained millions of fans around the world over his almost five-decade career in music, which is why it's no surprise that so many musicians have come out to honor the man with some emotional covers.

Petty and the Heartbreakers composed the entire soundtrack for 1996 romantic comedy She's the One and their songs have also notably appeared in everything ranging from Parks and Recreation to this year's Emmy-winning drama The Handmaid's Tale.

"On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty".

The Florida Gators will honor Gainesville native and rock legend Tom Petty, who passed away this week from cardiac arrest, with a special musical tribute at its game Saturday against visiting LSU.

Confirmation of the rocker's death comes hours after it was first reported by CBS News in a breaking news story early Monday based on information obtained officially from the Los Angeles Police Department, with Petty's passing making headlines around the world prematurely; the LAPD later said it was not in a position to confirm the singer's status. Standouts include a cover of Beck's "A-hole" and a version of "Walls" featuring Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham.

The movie version of the HBO series ended with a previously unreleased Petty song, "Somewhere Under Heaven", a cut originally intended for 1994's Wildflowers.
