The discography of Jane's Addiction, an American alternative rock band, consists of four studio albums, two live albums, four compilation albums, seventeen singles and ten music videos. Jane's Addiction was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band is composed of Perry Farrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar), Eric Avery (bass) and Stephen Perkins (drums). After breaking up in 1991, Jane's Addiction briefly toured in 1997, reunited in 2001 and then parted ways in 2004. Jane's Addiction have since reunited again in 2008, with founding member Eric Avery returning on bass (Avery has since left again). The band's varied musical style have influences rooted in punk rock and heavy metal.

Jane's Addiction was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States. Their initial farewell tour launched the first Lollapalooza festival, an annual touring alternative rock showcase. As a result, Jane's Addiction became icons of what Farrell dubbed the "Alternative Nation".[1]

Their debut album, Nothing's Shocking, was released in 1988 on Warner Bros. Records. The album was a failure on the music charts only reaching #103 on the Billboard 200, however, the album was certified 2× Multi-Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Three singles, "Jane Says", "Mountain Song" and "Ocean Size", were released from the album in 1988 and 1989 respectively. Their debut single "Jane Says", became their first chart entry on the Alternative Songs chart, peaking at #6. The song was the only song from Nothing's Shocking to enter any Billboard chart.

In 1990, the group released their second studio album, Ritual de lo Habitual. The album reached the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and was also their highest-selling album to date, going 3× Multi-Platinum in the US. The album featured four singles including the #1 singles "Stop!" and "Been Caught Stealing". After this album, they took a 13-year hiatus away from new music, however, they did release six compilation and live albums between 1987 and 2009.

Strays was their first full-length studio album in 13 years. It was released on Capitol Records on July 22, 2003. It peaked at #4 in the United States, along with many other international charts. The album's lead single, "Just Because", became their first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also became their first Top 5 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, as well as their third #1 on the Alternative Songs chart. The second single, however, only made it into the Top 40 of the rock charts. Nevertheless, the album was certified gold.

After a four-year hiatus, Jane's Addiction reunited in 2008. After touring and recording, the band released its fourth studio album, The Great Escape Artist on October 18, 2011. In the summer of 2013, Jane's Addiction released a single, "Another Soulmate."
