Can anyone name an obscure metal band from the mid 80s who released an album called "The Morning After"? As I recall, the album art featured a drawing of a young metalhead who was passed out in the middle of his bedroom floor with albums, beer cans and clothes strewn all over the floor. It was pretty forgettable music overall, but there was a song on the CD called "Try Again" that I liked a lot. The only other hints I have are that the album was released by a smaller label, I think Metal Blade or Roadrunner. I'm pretty sure that the band name started with a letter at the end of the alphabet as I always kept my tapes in alphabetical order and this tape was towards the end of my collection.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I googled the album and song title and came up with a band called "Tankard."

Here are the lyrics to "Try Again"

When every day life
starts to get you down
And your problems seem too many
When your job is shit, the rent is due
And you're down to your last penny
Where do you go? Who do you count on
When there's no place left to hide?
When your parents don'
like you and they told you so
They wish that you had died
I look at you - and I know what to do
I look at you - I know what to do
I look at you - and I know what to do
I look at you - I know what to do
They gotta try!
Now I'm not here to preach or tell you
The way you got to live
Just stop and thing about what you want
And what you want to give
Goddammit life is what we're here for
Then better get away from me
Try again!
You got to get up in the
morning and try again
Not tomorrow - do it today
Young or old, it don't matter man
Don't let your life slip away
You got take a chance - push yourself
Stand up for what you know is right
Don't take no shit from anyone
Let'em know that you're ready to fight
Try again!
Now, there's no easy answers
But here's my final advice to you
Take control of your life, man
Work hard and follow thru
And if a friend is travelling a rocky roa
Then help him on his way
Tell him that he's got to try again
And try harder every day
Repeat 3rd verse

Bingo! That's the one, thanks Wunderkind. I have tried to use Google in the past to find this album with no success; I haven't tried it in a year or two.
