The discography of Pulp, an English Britpop band, consists of seven studio albums, one extended play, 10 compilation albums and 24 singles. They were formed in 1978 by Jarvis Cocker and had a continuously rotating band membership until the eleven years between 1991 and their hiatus on 15 December 2002, during which they were largely settled.[1] They rose to prominence during the Britpop era in the early 1990s with their album His 'n' Hers (1994).

The band released two albums and eight singles in the 1980s, which garnered little attention from audiences or critics.[2] Their first charting single was "Razzmatazz", which reached #80 on the UK Singles Chart. His 'n' Hers was their first charting album, peaking at #9 on the UK Album Charts.

As they became part of the Britpop music scene, the band scored their first major hits, most notably "Common People" and "Disco 2000". Their 1995 album Different Class was a commercial success, peaking at #1 in the UK and going platinum four times. Two further albums, This Is Hardcore and We Love Life, achieved moderate commercial success.

Fire Records, who own the material from the band's first three albums, re-released it several times after Pulp achieved success in a number of compilation albums, most of which had little commercial success.

In 2013 Pulp released a new single "After You", written a number of years earlier but never fully finished or released until then. It peaked at number 101 in the UK Singles Chart[3] and in the Top 10 of the UK Indie Chart.[4]
