Disco Extravaganza is the first studio album by the Swedish pop group Army of Lovers, released in 1990. In the USA, the album was simply titled Army of Lovers. The tracklist is slightly different and some songs were remixed for the US version. "Supernatural" and "Ride the Bullet" were re-recorded for inclusion on Massive Luxury Overdose, the band's second and most successful album ("My Army Of Lovers" was also included, but not re-recorded). The album was first planned to be released only in Scandinavia, but in winter of 90/91 when they performed in Super Channel-show, 40 million people in Japan watched them and the album was released there too. Still after 4 months the album was in the Top 50 in Japan.[1] A remastered version of the album was released in 2007.

The track "Viva La Vogue" was used in the soundtrack of the comedy film Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

The track "Birds of Prey" is a faithful rendition of the first section of the original "Birds of Prey", the first track on the United Artists 1976 album release "New Nation", by Roderick Falconer.
