No Mean City is the tenth studio album by the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, released in 1979. The album title comes from the 1935 novel No Mean City and features artwork illustrated by Rodney Matthews. With this record that stood dormant the band's sound was heavier, considering the addition of guitarist Zal Cleminson of Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Sold very well at the time, with the main single Star, preceded by Whatever you want babe. The popularity of the album allowed the band to tour with several big names such as Thin Lizzy, on 1978/79 tourne .
