The following is the discography of the band Genesis. Genesis are a British progressive rock band comprising Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks (with touring members Chester Thompson and Daryl Stuermer) and previously including Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Anthony Phillips, John Mayhew and Ray Wilson, in various periods of their history. Genesis' first album, From Genesis to Revelation, was released in March 1969 and reached its international peak of #170 on the United States' Billboard 200 albums chart. Over the next five years, Genesis released albums in the second half of every year, including two in 1973, as one was a live album. Over this period, the group's fame rose, as did their charting positions. Over time, the group has broken up, changed lineups and taken both short and extended hiatuses.
