This is the discography of the South Korean idol PSY. He is well known for his humorous videos and stage performances, and for his hit single "Gangnam Style", a song about where he came from and which talks about the life of the people of Gangnam, which is a neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea.

In January 2001, PSY debuted with his full-length album PSY from the PSYcho World!, for which he received a fine due to accusations that the album contained "inappropriate content". He released another controversial second album Sa 2 in 2002, which sparked complaints from concerned civil groups due to the potentially negative influence his album would have on children and teenagers. Since then, Psy has been thought of as a controversial artist, and Sa 2 was banned in 2002 from being sold to those under the age of 19. Later in September the same year, Psy released his third album 3 PSY. The album's title song, "Champion", saw great success partly due to the hype from the World Cup games held in Seoul. Despite the significant amount of controversy surrounding his music, PSY was awarded with songwriting accolades at the annually held Seoul Music Awards, which marked his breakthrough in the music industry of South Korea. In 2006, PSY released his 4th album Sa Jib, which won honors at the 2006 SBS Music Awards and the Mnet Asian Music Awards. PSY released his 5th album PSY Five in 2010, but its lead single "Right Now" was banned by South Korea's Ministry of Gender Equality and Family for its "obscene" lyrics. Despite his lead single being banned, PSY received awards during the 2011 Melon Music Awards and Mnet Asian Music Awards. Prior to the release of "Gangnam Style", PSY had topped domestic music charts half a dozen times throughout his 12-year career, according to Billboard. In July 2012, PSY released his 6th album Psy 6 (Six Rules), Part 1 and the song "Gangnam Style" appeared in broadcasting networks and newspapers outside Asia. On August 14, "Gangnam Style" ranked first on YouTube's 'Most Viewed Videos' monthly chart; it has received over 1 billion on YouTube (the first to reach this mark and currently the number one viewed video in YouTube's history). On August 2, 2012, Psy was shown on CNN for the first time in the USA. On September 11, he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and taught the dance to Britney Spears. On September 14, 2012, he appeared on The Today Show on NBC in New York City, performing the song live and teaching dance moves to the anchors. The following day, he also made a cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live during a skit featuring "Gangnam Style" He also appeared on ABC's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve on December 31 with MC Hammer to perform the song live in Times Square. His single, "Gentleman", was released on April 12, 2013 in 119 countries.
