The discography of Gojira, a French groove metal band, consists of six studio albums, three live albums, four demo albums, three video albums, two extended plays, six singles, and eleven music videos.

Gojira was formed in 1996 under the name Godzilla by guitarist Joe Duplantier, his brother, drummer Mario Duplantier, guitarist Christian Andreu, and bassist Alexandre Cornillon.[1] After releasing a series of demos from 1996 to 2000, changing their name due to legal reasons in 1999 and Jean-Michel Labadie replacing Cornillon in 2001,[2] the band released their first full-length album, Terra Incognita, through Gabriel Editions. The band then signed with Boycott Records for their second studio album, The Link, in 2003, and their first live DVD, The Link Alive, in 2004, which was also released as a live album.

On 27 September 2005, Gojira released their third studio album, From Mars to Sirius through Mon Slip, which was later released worldwide release via Prosthetic Records. From Mars to Sirius was Gojira's first album to appear on any country's record chart, debuting at number forty-four in France.[3] It remained on the chart for three weeks.[3] After extensive world touring, the band released The Way of All Flesh in 2008, which debuted and peaked at number one hundred and thirty-eight on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States, number twenty-five in Finland and number twenty-eight in France.[3][4][5]
