Dawn Patrol is the debut studio album by Night Ranger released in 1982. During the recording of the album, the band was known as just Ranger. The first issues of the album were printed and ready to be shipped when it was discovered that there was a country band from California with the same name. The band decided to name themselves Night Ranger after the song that Blades had written for the album, and Boardwalk proceeded to destroy every copy that had "Ranger" on it. "Don't Tell Me You Love Me", the first single/video, entered heavy rotation on MTV and reached #40 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart. The second single/video, "Sing Me Away" peaked at #54 on Billboard's Hot 100 and at #39 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart in late spring of 1983.
