Julius Caesar is the third album by Bill Callahan (also known as Smog), released in 1993 on Drag City. It was re-released in Europe in 2001 on Domino Records. After his two first LPs, which were recorded at home with an experimental lo-fi-approach, Callahan decided to record this album in a professional studio. Nevertheless, he kept control over the recording process, with only Kim Osterwalder helping out on cello.

The song "One Less Star" appeared in Above the Below, a 2003-documentary about a stunt by David Blaine. "Chosen One" was covered live by The Flaming Lips in a record store in Minneapolis on December 12, 1993, a recording which later appeared on their EP Due to High Expectations... the Flaming Lips Are Providing Needles for Your Balloons. The song also appeared (as a Peel Session) on Callahan's rarities compilation Accumulation: None in 2002.

The song "37 Push Ups" appeared in the record company Kill Rock Stars' compilation album, Rock Stars Kill.[4]
