The discography of the American pop rock group Boys Like Girls includes three studio albums, one live album, three extended plays, and 7 singles.

Boys Like Girls released their self-titled debut album on August 22, 2006. During the first weeks of sales, the album did not sell too well, only reaching the lower half of the Billboard 200. Their first single, "Hero/Heroine", charted at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it was their second single, "The Great Escape", that significantly raised album sales. With the single reaching the Top 40 of the Hot 100, the album managed to re-enter the chart and peak at #55 on the Billboard 200. Within weeks of the re-entry, the album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on January 11, 2008.[1] The album's third single, "Thunder", was not as successful, only reaching #76 on the Hot 100 chart. However, the single obtained a Gold certification.

Their second album, Love Drunk, was released on September 8, 2009. It proved that their popularity had increased, as the album debuted and peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200. It also debuted at #1 on Billboard Top Rock albums and #11 on the Canadian Albums Chart. The album's title track and lead single reached #22 on the Hot 100, giving them their second Top 40 on that chart. A digital single, "She's Got a Boyfriend Now", reached #9 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100. The album's official second single, "Two Is Better Than One", features country pop artist Taylor Swift. It, too, became a Top 40 single on the Hot 100, giving Boys Like Girls their third and Swift her 22nd; it is also the group's biggest hit to date.

In 2012, Boys Like Girls announced that they were working on their third studio album titled Crazy World, which was set for a fall 2012 release but delayed until December. Incorporating country pop sounds, the album marked a stylistic departure for the group but only reached #134 on the Billboard 200.
