"Allied Forces" is the first single and title track from the internationally successful Allied Forces album by Canadian hard rock band Triumph, first released in September 1981, and later released on the album the following month.[1] [2][3][4]

Gil Moore performed the vocals on this track.

This song was played on every tour beginning with the Allied Forces world tour in 1981, though the band would often only play the first half. The complete version was brought back into the set list in 1986 for the The Sport of Kings tour. The song was released live on the Stages album when first released on vinyl, however every subsequent remastered version has omitted it.
