The discography of the British rock band Motörhead is complicated and large; this list represents the "core" albums as defined by the band themselves on their website alongside singles and other releases as detailed by other principal sources. There are, in addition, bootlegs and many compilations of previously recorded material and live recordings, which are not issued under the control of the band, so one may find exactly the same material under several different names.
