The discography of Don Henley, singer and drummer for the country rock group Eagles, consists of four studio albums, two compilation albums, and twenty-seven solo singles.

As a solo artist, Henley released his debut album, I Can't Stand Still, on August 13, 1982, via Asylum Records. This was his only album for the label. The album reached a peak of number 24 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. It features the Top 5 single on the Billboard Hot 100, "Dirty Laundry". The single peaked at number three on the Hot 100 chart and was also certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. His second album, Building the Perfect Beast, (Geffen Records, 1984) features the Top 10 singles "The Boys of Summer", "All She Wants to Do Is Dance", which reached number five and number nine on the Hot 100, respectively.

After five years of absence from new material, Henley's third studio album was released in 1989. The End of the Innocence became his first solo Top 10 album on the Billboard 200. By this time, the Eagles had charted five Top 10 albums. The End of the Innocence became Henley's best-selling album to date, being certified six-times Platinum in the U.S. A fourth studio album, Inside Job, was released on May 23, 2000, via Warner Bros. Records. Although being his highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 and being certified Platinum in the U.S., no single released made the Top 40 of the Hot 100. However, "Taking You Home" reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart.
