The official discography of Anthrax, an American thrash metal band, consists of ten studio albums, five live albums, four compilation albums, ten video albums, six extended plays, twenty-six singles and twenty-six music videos.

Anthrax was formed in 1981 by Scott Ian and Danny Lilker. They found the band's name in a biology textbook and claimed it because it sounded sufficiently evil to them. Anthrax started playing locally. In 1983 Anthrax signed to Megaforce Records. The band released Fistful of Metal in 1984, and the following year they released Spreading the Disease. After the album came out, by this time Anthrax had signed with Island Records. In March 1987, the band released its third studio album, Among the Living, which was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[1] Among the Living was released in March 1987 and peaked at number sixty-two on the Billboard 200.[2]

Anthrax's fourth album, State of Euphoria, was released in 1988 and peaked at thirty-one on the Billboard 200.[2] The band embarked on a tour in support of the album. Anthrax would later release Persistence of Time, which peaked at number twenty-four on the Billboard 200. After the release of a video album and a live album, the band released Sound of White Noise, their highest charting album to date. Two singles, "Only" and "Black Lodge", charted on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart at numbers twenty-six and thirty-eight, respectively.[3]
