Steeltown is the second studio album by Scottish rock band Big Country, released in 1984. The album was produced by Steve Lillywhite and recorded at The Town House in London. Steeltown is a concept album that explores the struggles of the working class in the steel-producing towns of Scotland. The album's title is a reference to the steel industry that was once the backbone of Scotland's economy.

The album features Big Country's signature sound of guitar-driven rock with a Celtic influence. The band's use of the e-bow, a device that creates a sustained guitar sound, is prominent throughout the album. The songs on Steeltown are anthemic and powerful, with lyrics that speak to the struggles of the working class.

The album's lead single, "East of Eden," was a top 20 hit in the UK and helped to establish Big Country as a major force in the British rock scene. Other standout tracks on the album include "Where the Rose Is Sown," "Just a Shadow," and "Steeltown."

Overall, Steeltown is a powerful and emotional album that captures the spirit of the working class in Scotland. Big Country's unique sound and powerful lyrics make this album a classic of the 1980s rock scene.
