This is a discography of Boredoms, a Japanese experimental noise rock band. To date, Boredoms have released seven full-length studio albums, eleven EPs (nine of which comprise their Super Roots series), three singles, two live albums, three videos, a cassette series, and five remix albums, in addition to their members' various side projects.

Although the band's work can be documented back to 1982 with the Early Boredoms compilation released with Soul Discharge,[1] the earlier records by the band under the name Boredoms, Anal by Anal and Soul Discharge, were put out on the small independent Japanese labels while American label Shimmy Disc and English label Earthnoise distributed records overseas. Their success garnered attention from the Warner Music Group as its Japanese and American sublabels, WEA Japan and Reprise, released Pop Tatari in 1992 and 1993. Reprise dropped the band after the 1996 release of Super Roots 6, and the band's United States releases were picked back up by Birdman. The band went on hiatus for a few years around 2001 when the Rebore series was finished; they were consequently dropped by Birdman.

When the band reconvened in 2004 as V∞redoms for the release of Seadrum/House of Sun, they were signed on to Vice, who also reissued the band's catalogue of Super Roots EPs up through 8 (minus Super Roots 2).[2] Although WEA Japan still released Seadrum/House of Sun in Japan, the band left the label to sign to two smaller labels—Commmons for Japan and Thrill Jockey for the United States—through which the band released Super Roots 9 and their second DVD set Live at Sunflancisco.[3][4]
