The discography of Clutch, an American rock band, consists of ten studio albums, five live albums, two compilation albums, five extended plays, ten singles, and two video albums.

Clutch was formed in 1991 by vocalist Neil Fallon, guitarist Tim Sult, bassist Dan Maines and drummer Jean-Paul Gaster. [1] The group debuted with Pitchfork, an EP released in October that same year. The band built a local following through constant gigging and released their second EP Passive Restraints through Earache). Clutch was signed by Atlantic and in 1993, under Atlantic's East West Records label, released their full length debut Transnational Speedway League. A self-titled album appeared two years later on Atlantic, which afforded the band some mainstream exposure.[1]

Clutch then signed with major label Columbia for 1998's The Elephant Riders but released 1999's Jam Room on their own River Road Records label. In 2001 the band was back with Atlantic with the release of Pure Rock Fury, which included guest appearances from members of Spirit Caravan and Sixty Watt Shaman. Their sixth album, Blast Tyrant, appeared three years later and was the first through DRT Entertainment. Followed by Robot Hive/Exodus in 2005, which featured the first lineup change since the early 1990s; the addition of organist Mick Schauer.[1] 2007 saw the release of From Beale Street to Oblivion, and in the next year their first video, entitled Full Fathom Five, accompanied by a homonymous[citation needed] audio edition.

In 2009, Clutch released Strange Cousins from the West on their own label, Weathermaker Music. The band was once again a four-piece, without Schauer in the line-up. In 2013 they released their tenth studio album Earth Rocker again through Weathermaker.
