The discography of German girl group No Angels consists of five studio albums, three compilation albums, two live albums, four video albums and seventeen singles. The group sold over five million records before breaking up in 2003 making them the "best selling" German girl group of all time.[1]

In February 2001 the band released their debut single, "Daylight in Your Eyes", which reached number one in Germany for six consecutive weeks.[2] The song also topped the charts in Austria and Switzerland.[3][4] The group's debut album, Elle'ments, was released the following month and topped the German albums chart for three weeks, eventually being certified 7× gold.[5][6] The album also reached number one in Austria and Switzerland for four weeks, going platinum in both countries.[3][4] The album spawned three more top ten singles, including a cover of Eurythmics', "There Must Be an Angel", which reached number one in Germany for five weeks.[2] The band's second album, Now... Us!, also peaked at number one in Germany in June 2002.[5] Now... Us produced four singles, two of which reached the top five in Germany, including their third number one single in Germany and Austria, "Something About Us".[2][3]

Preceded by their fourth number-one single, "No Angel (It's All in Your Mind)" and top five single "Someday", the group's third album, Pure, was released in August 2003.[2] It was their first album as a quartet. Although the album was less successful than its predecessors, it was still certified gold.[6] The album spawned one more single, "Feelgood Lies", which reached number three in Germany.[2] The group announced that they were splitting up in Autumn 2003, and released one final album, The Best of No Angels, a greatest hits album with all of their singles.[7] It peaked at number five in Germany for two weeks.[5] The band re-formed in 2007 and released their fourth studio album, Destiny in April 2007.[7] The album was less successful then their previous albums, peaking at number four in Germany, making it their first studio album not to reach the top spot.[5] Although the singles produced failed to match the success of its preceders, it produced two top five hits with the comeback single "Goodbye to Yesterday" and the German entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, "Disappear".[2] The band's second post-reunion album, Welcome to the Dance, was released in September 2009. It peaked at number twenty-six, lasting two weeks in the German albums chart, making it both, their lowest-charting and selling album to date.[5] Its first and only single "One Life" peaked at number fifteen in Germany.[2]
