Tough All Over is an album by American rock band John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band.

It was first released in 1985 and was Cafferty's first attempt to pull his band away from the Eddie and the Cruisers franchise; however, it was later re-released with a different album cover and "The Voice of Eddie and the Cruisers" added to the title.
