The Iron City Houserockers were an American rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, led by singer/guitarist Joe Grushecky, that existed from 1976 until 1984. Lumped into the heartland rock genre, critically praised but commercially unsuccessful, the band's fans view them as one of the great "shoulda-beens" in the history of rock and roll.

Following the break-up, Grushecky formed The Houserockers in 1989 and has released nine albums since, including American Babylon, which was recorded with the assistance of Bruce Springsteen.
