Tom Petty and The Last DJ

ClearChannel/“I Heart” banned this song when it first came out because they said it was “anti-radio”.

You decide:

The last DJWell you can’t turn him into a com­pa­ny man
You can’t turn him into a whore
And the boys upstairs just don’t under­stand a
Well the top brass don’t like him talk­ing so much,
And he won’t play what they say to play
And he don’t want to change what don’t need to change
There goes the last DJ
Who plays what he wants to play
And says what he wants to say, hey hey hey

Rest in Peace Mr. Pet­ty. Your song is now the anthem of com­mu­ni­ty radio DJs through­out the world.
