American rock band The Pretty Reckless has released two studio albums, two extended plays, nine singles and 10 music videos. Originally named The Reckless, the band was formed in early 2009, with Taylor Momsen in the vocals, Ben Phillips in lead guitar, Mark Damon in bass and Jamie Perkins in drums.[1]

During 2009, they played some small concerts in New York City and then opened for The Veronicas on their North American tour.[1] Following the end of that tour, Interscope Records signed a record deal with the band.[1] Their debut single was "Make Me Wanna Die", which became a top-20 hit on the UK Singles Chart.[2] The song was eventually featured on their debut studio album, Light Me Up, released in August 2010. The album had sold over one million units in combined singles and albums sales as of January 2014.[3] In March 2012, the band released their second extended play, Hit Me Like a Man EP, which included three original tracks.[4]

In 2013, The Pretty Reckless signed with label Razor & Tie to release their second studio album, Going to Hell, in March 2014.[5] The album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200,[6] spawned five singles, of which three topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart—"Heaven Knows", "Messed Up World (F'd Up World)", and "Follow Me Down".[7]
