Music video by Billy Joel performing Allentown. (C) 1982 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

"Allentown" is a Billy Joel song, which first appeared on Joel's The Nylon Curtain (1982) album, accompanied by a conceptual music video. 

The song reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the most-played radio songs of 1982. The video, directed by Russell Mulcahy, was also in heavy rotation on MTV during 1982 and 1983. The original airing of the song featured rear male nudity in the opening of the song as steelworkers showered in their locker-room; the scene was edited from subsequent airings on MTV.

Upon its release, and especially in subsequent years, "Allentown" has emerged as an anthem of blue collar America, representing both the aspirations and frustrations of America's working class in the late 20th century.
