Real Men Cry is an album by roots music band Lost Dogs, released on BEC Records in 2001.

Lost Dogs

Lost Dogs are an American musical supergroup formed in 1991, comprising vocalists, songwriters, and guitarists from multiple Christian alternative rock bands. Their current lineup includes Terry Scott Taylor, Michael Roe, Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong. The original lineup included Gene Eugene, who died in 2000. The band's eclectic blending of folk, blues, country, and rock has been characterized as "a sort of CCM equivalent to the Traveling Wilburys". The band released their debut album Scenic Routes in 1992 as a one-time collaboration.


This was the first album by the Lost Dogs after Gene Eugene's death in March 2000 and is a tribute to him.

Gene Andrusco, better known as Gene Eugene, was a Canadian-born actor, record producer, engineer, composer and musician. Andrusco was best known as the leader of the alternative rock band Adam Again, a member of The Swirling Eddies and as a founding member of the supergroup Lost Dogs.

The song "Lovely Man" is not listed on the back cover of the CD. It was actually meant to go between the songs "Three Legged Dog" and "When The Judgement Comes," but was moved and drastically edited by the label, BEC Records. The label objected to the lyric "right by damn," and completely edited it from the recording on the final album. The song, in its unedited form, has only surfaced on CD once on a Paste Magazine CD sampler.
