"Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers" is the eponymous debut album by the band of the same name, released in late 1976.

Initially following its release, the album received little attention in the United States. Following a British tour, it climbed to the #24 on the UK album chart and the single "Anything That's Rock 'n' Roll" became a hit in the UK. After nearly a year and many positive reviews, the album reached the U.S. charts, where it climbed to #55 and eventually went Gold. The single "Breakdown" cracked the Top 40 in the U.S. and "American Girl" became an FM radio staple which can still be heard today. [Whitburn, Joel. "Rock Tracks" (2002): 331]
