The discography of All, a Fort Collins, Colorado-based punk rock band, consists of nine studio albums, one compilation album, two live albums, one EP, six singles, and five music videos.

All formed in Los Angeles in 1987 following the departure of vocalist Milo Aukerman from the Descendents.[1] The remaining Descendents members—guitarist Stephen Egerton, bassist Karl Alvarez, and drummer Bill Stevenson—decided to carry on as a band, adopting the title of the Descendents' last studio album, All, as their new name and recruiting singer Dave Smalley.[1] They released the album Allroy Sez and EP Allroy for Prez in 1988 through Cruz Records, the former supported by a single for "Just Perfect".[1] Smalley then left the band and was replaced by Scott Reynolds.[1] Allroy's Revenge was released in 1989, with "She's My Ex" as the album's single.[1] Two more albums followed in 1990: the live album Trailblazer and studio effort Allroy Saves.[1] In 1991 All collaborated with former Descendents bassist Tony Lombardo on the album New Girl, Old Story, credited to "TonyAll".[1] Percolater followed in 1992, with the single "Dot", and was the band's last album with Reynolds.[1]

All relocated to Fort Collins, Colorado, adding singer Chad Price for 1993's Breaking Things, which was supported by the singles "Shreen" and "Guilty".[1] The band then left Cruz Records in favor of major label Interscope for 1995's Pummel, but dissatisfaction with the label soon led to their departure.[1] Aukerman, who had contributed occasional songwriting and backing vocals to All since his departure from the Descendents, then decided to return to music. The members decided to operate simultaneously as two bands, performing with Aukerman as the Descendents and with Price as All. Both bands signed to Epitaph Records, with the Descendents releasing Everything Sucks in 1996 and All releasing Mass Nerder in 1998, both recorded in their newly constructed Fort Collins studio The Blasting Room.[1] They also launched their own label, Owned & Operated Recordings, through which they released the compilation album All in 1999, consisting of remixed versions of songs from their previous albums including contributions from all three All singers as well as Aukerman.

2000 saw the release of Problematic, followed in 2001 by Live Plus One, a double live album with one disc by All and the other by the Descendents. Live Plus One became All's only release to chart, reaching #45 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart.[2] All remained effectively on hiatus over the next seven years, with the members active in other musical projects including a new Descendents album in 2004 titled Cool to Be You. In 2008 All reunited with Scott Reynolds and have performed a number of times with him as singer, but have not released any new recordings.
