Through The Darkness is the third album released by New York City glam punk band D Generation, and their last release until 2016. It was their second released via Columbia Records. This was also the only D Generation album without founding member and guitarist Richard Bacchus, who was replaced by Todd Youth. The album was produced by T. Rex and David Bowie producer Tony Visconti. Drummer Michael Wildwood's writing credits on "Lonely" and "Cornered" are listed under his actual name of "Michael Reich".

The album would prove to be D Generation's last before breaking up merely a month after its release; the band eventually regrouped to record a new album, Nothing Is Anywhere, which was released 17 years later in 2016. Only one track "Helpless" was taken from the record as a single; this single would also feature in the movie The Faculty.
