The discography of The Stooges — a Detroit, Michigan based rock band founded by "The Godfather of Punk Music" Iggy Pop as singer, Ron Asheton as guitarist, Dave Alexander as bass-guitarist and Scott Asheton as drummer — currently consists of five studio albums, twenty-four singles, four live albums, and three box sets.

The Stooges debut album The Stooges was released on August 5, 1969 in the United States, and one month later in the United Kingdom. The album wasn't a huge commercial success — it charted in the Billboard 200 at 106. Almost one year later, on July 7, 1970, the band released their second album, Fun House, which didn't chart in the Billboard 200, the UK Album Chart, or any other international music album chart. In February 1973, the Stooges released their third album, Raw Power. It charted in the Billboard 200 at 182, in the United Kingdom at least at 44, and is the best charting album by The Stooges in the United Kingdom to date. After the release of Raw Power, the band (also known at the time as Iggy & The Stooges) announced their break-up. The Stooges reunited thirty-four years after their official dissolution, and released The Weirdness. Although the album was their best-charting album in the United States, peaking at number 130, its overall commercial success is similar to that of the Stooges' first three albums.

The Stooges are described by critics as one of the key bands of punk music, in the genre described as "proto-punk", an early form of punk rock. Many musicians, particularly those in punk bands, cite the Stooges as a huge influence.
