The discography of Joan Jett, an American rock singer, includes 42 singles and 14 studio albums.

As a part of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, her most successful release is 1981's I Love Rock 'n Roll. The album reached #2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and was certified Platinum in the United States and as well as 2× Platinum in Canada while selling over 10 million copies worldwide. This album spawned two Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest being "I Love Rock 'n' Roll". It reached the top of the chart in 1982. It was then followed by the #7-peaking single, "Crimson and Clover". Two additional singles were issued, however, neither of which charted.

After releasing three additional albums between 1983 and 1986, Jett returned with the album Up Your Alley, in 1988. It was a Top 20 album on the Billboard 200, and was her second (and final) Platinum certified album in the United States. The album featured the Top 10 single "I Hate Myself for Loving You". After the release of The Hit List in 1990, Jett faded away from the music scene. None of her subsequent albums charted, nor did any of her singles. However, she released a string of compilation albums throughout the 1990s, and released six more studio albums, the most recent being Unvarnished in 2013. Unvarnished reached number 47 on the Billboard 200.
