After the demise of Rock N' Hyde/Payola$ in 1988, songwriter/guitarist Bob Rock decided to pursue his interest in producing, and spent the next four years producing such diverse acts as Motley Crue, Cher and Metallica in his native Vancouver. Rock garnered a reputation for being one of music's heavy-weight producer, but all the while his love of writing music simmered underneath. He had kept in touch with Capitol Records and Payola$ drummer Chris Taylor in those years, and then found bassist Jamey Kosh and singer Steve Jack in bands playing the clubs in the Vancouver area. Together the quartet started writing, rehearsing, playing gigs here and there, and coming together as a band. During that time they also recorded off and on, and four years later, they released their eponymous debut album on Capitol in 1993. The style was nothing like Rock N' Hyde; rather than the pop/new wave sounds of Rock N' Hyde (and their earlier incarnation the Payola$), Rockhead were a hard rock band more along the lines of the heavier bands that Rock had been producing over the years. The band toured sporadically in support of the album, but called it quits shortly thereafter and Rock went back to producing.
