It fulfills the promise of American Girl's jangle, and in the vein of the "that part in that one song" thread, the bit at starting at 3:11 where he extends "hardest" into the main riff gets me every time.

For that matter, the backing vocals in Breakdown are perfect.

"Breakdown" is one of the all-time great rock songs in my book. Everything from the smokey guitar licks to the intense surge of the chorus to the way Petty's vocals are complimented by the background singers is about as damn close to perfect as they can be.
