The discography of Silverchair, an Australian alternative rock band, consists of five studio albums, twenty-two singles, two live albums, two best of albums, and four video releases.

Silverchair's first single, "Tomorrow", was highly successful upon release in 1994, which provided the band an opportunity to re-release the song, and also to film their debut music video. Shortly after, they released their debut album; Frogstomp.[1] Achieving success in the United States and performing around the world, Silverchair's band members continued with their school studies, and in 1997 released Freak Show, which sold over 3 million copies worldwide.[2] Following the success of 1999's Neon Ballroom, Silverchair toured worldwide, then announced a break following the termination of their contract with Sony. The band joined Eleven, a record label formed by their manager, John Watson.

Silverchair returned to recording in June 2001, and released Diorama in 2002. Lead singer Daniel Johns succumbed to reactive arthritis while the band were touring to promote the album,[3] and after the 2002 ARIA Awards the band announced an indefinite hiatus.[4] Silverchair reunited after Wave Aid in 2005, and released Young Modern in 2007.[5]
