American Caesar is the 11th album by Iggy Pop released in 1993. After the success of Brick by Brick, Pop opted to continue with that album's lyrical themes while toughening up the musical foundation. The album is often considered one of his stronger 90's albums. Videos were made for "Wild America" and "Beside you", and the album has a cover of the 60s standard "Louie Louie" (made famous by The Kingsmen) for which Pop wrote his own set of politically fueled lyrics. It was later used during the opening credits of Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story.
The first single from the album, "Wild America", reached number 25 on Modern rock tracks. The album was not as commercially successful as its predecessor, but it did fare well in the UK and sold well throughout the 90s in America.
