"Scare Easy" is a song written and sung by Tom Petty. It featured on the debut album by rock band Mudcrutch featuring Petty and Mike Campbell. The song was used in a 2008 commercial for My Name is Earl.[1]

"Scare Easy" was described as being "full of the tones and lyrics of the mid 1970s. but the tight harmonies come from musicians who have matured."[2]

The song can also be heard over the end credits of the movie Appaloosa (2008), a western directed and starring Ed Harris and co-starring Viggo Mortensen and Renée Zellweger. However, "Scare Easy" does not appear on Jeff Beal's official soundtrack for the movie.
