The discography of Roxette, the second most commercially successful band from Sweden, after ABBA.[1] This is a list of all of their albums and singles. They have sold an estimated 60 million records,[2][3] with over 3.5 million record sales in the United States,[4][5][6] achieving platinum for Joyride and Look Sharp! there.[4] They enjoyed worldwide success, from the late 1980s until the mid-1990s, gaining nineteen UK top 40 hits[7] and four US #1 singles with "The Look", "Listen to Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love" and "Joyride".[8] Two further singles, "Dangerous" and "Fading Like a Flower", hit #2.[8] They also achieved three #1s and seventeen top 10 singles in Sweden.[9]

All their albums from 1986–2001, excluding compilations, were re-mastered and re-released in September 2009. This was because the albums were out of print in some countries and also the sound was not up to date, Per Gessle explained. Previously released bonus tracks were included on all the re-released albums.[10]
