|Compilations with various artists||1|
The American electronic industrial rock band My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult has released ten studio albums, one live album, three compilation albums, two video albums, six remix albums, three extended plays, and ten singles. In addition, their songs have been featured on three soundtrack albums and one promotional single for major Hollywood films.
They began their career on the independent record label Wax Trax! Records, which, like the band, was based in Chicago. In 1991, their single "Sexplosion!" from the album of the same name became a top 10 dance club hit in the U.S. Following this success, Thrill Kill Kult was signed by the major label Interscope Records, which re-released the Sexplosion! album. On Interscope, the band achieved their biggest hit, "Sex On Wheelz", which reached the top 20 on both the dance club and alternative U.S. charts.
The band's 1993 Interscope album 13 Above the Night was their only album to chart, reaching #194 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart. The album provided two more dance chart hits, "Blue Buddha" and "Final Blindness". After one more Interscope album, Thrill Kill Kult briefly moved to Red Ant Records in the late 1990s. Their releases since 2000 have been on Rykodisc and/or the band's own label, Sleazebox Records.
Thrill Kill Kult's songs have also been featured (along with other artists) on three soundtrack albums for the films Cool World (1992), The Crow (1994), and Showgirls (1995), as well as a promo-only single for the film The Flintstones (1994).
