Though the ensemble has had several temporary members, their more permanent members include Tommy Victor, the forming band member and lead vocalist ever since the band’s formation. Other two members include Tony Campos and Alexei Rodriguez who contribute their skills on bass guitar and drums respectively. Prong was created by two individuals, Tommy Victor as mentioned above and Mike Kirkland. These two individuals worked at the Country Blue Grass and Blues music club and decided to create their own group where Tommy played the lead guitar and provided with the vocals while Mike became the bassist. They were soon joined by Ted Parsons; ex-drummer of a punk rock band named Swans. The trio went on to produce two independent releases that were able to get them a major label signing.
In the year 1990, Mike quit from the band and Troy Gregory was taken aboard as the bassist for the band. However, four years later, Troy was dismissed and John Bechdel and Paul Raven became the bassists. These two individuals were from punk rock bands called Killing Joke and Murder Inc. The band with this new lineup released their fifth album which was able to become a worldwide hit. Songs like “Snap your fingers, Snap your neck” and “Broken Peace” are thought to be classics.

In the year 1996, Prong was dismissed by the Epic Records due to decreased sales with time and they decided to disband after the end of an ongoing tour.
