The band was founded late in the 1980s by Ron Young, who had previously worked as a nightclub bouncer.[1] The group independently released an EP which led to their signing with Geffen Records in 1989. John Kalodner did A&R work for the group, and Bob Rock produced their debut self-titled album, which was released in 1990 to positive reviews.[1] On the strength of the singles "Chain of Fools" and "In Your Arms", Little Caesar hit number 139 on the US Billboard 200 in 1990.[2.

Despite the group's chart success, they had problems maintaining a popular image, due in part to their heavily tattooed membership.[1] They remained with Geffen for a sophomore release, Influence in 1992, but neither Rock nor Kalodner continued working with them. By this time, guitarist Apache had left and was replaced with Earl Slick. After Influence failed to sell, the group disbanded. Ron Young later went on to sing in The Four Horsemen, Manic Eden, and Dirt.

The original band reforms for some live shows in 2001, and takes out a new album in 2009 (Joey Brasler replacing Apache on the guitar). « hide
