The discography of The Pretty Reckless, an American hard rock band, consists of one studio album, two extended plays, six singles and eight music videos. Originally named "The Reckless", the band was formed in early 2009, with Taylor Momsen in the vocals, Ben Phillips in lead guitar, Mark Damon in bass and Jamie Perkins in drums.[1]

During 2009, they played some small concerts in New York City and then opened for The Veronicas on their North American tour.[1] Following the end of that tour, Interscope Records signed a record deal with the band.[1] Their debut single was "Make Me Wanna Die", which became a top twenty hit in the United Kingdom.[2] The song was eventually featured on their debut album Light Me Up, released in 2010.[3] The album has sold over one million units in combined singles and albums sales as of 2014.[4] In early 2012, the band released Hit Me Like a Man, an extended play that included three original tracks.[5]

In 2013, The Pretty Reckless signed with label Razor & Tie to release their second studio album Going to Hell in 2014.[6] Before the release of the album, the band released two singles, "Going to Hell" and "Heaven Knows".[7]
