Tough All Over is an album by American rock band John Cafferty and 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.
