American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails have released nine studio albums, one live album, three remix albums, one box set, six extended plays, 20 singles, nine promotional singles, four video albums and 31 music videos. Nine Inch Nails has also contributed to numerous film soundtracks as well as the soundtrack to the video game Quake.[1]

Initial ambitions for Nine Inch Nails in 1988 were to release one 12-inch single on a small European label.[2] With the addition of future singles "Head Like a Hole" and "Sin", many of these demo tracks would later appear in revised form on Pretty Hate Machine in 1989, an album co-produced by Adrian Sherwood and Mark "Flood" Ellis which peaked at number 75 in 1990. In response to pressures from TVT Records for a follow-up to Nine Inch Nails' commercially successful debut, Reznor began recording the Broken extended play in secret. The EP was released in 1992 and reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200.[3] Nine Inch Nails' second studio album, The Downward Spiral, entered the Billboard 200 in 1994 at number two, sold over four million copies in the US[4] and remains the highest-selling Nine Inch Nails release in the United States.[5]

Five years elapsed before Nine Inch Nails' next major album, The Fragile, a double album that debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 228,000 copies in its first week, but dropped from the top 10 afterward.[1] Another six years elapsed before Nine Inch Nails' next studio album, With Teeth, which also debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.[6] In 2007, the band released Year Zero alongside an accompanying alternate reality game.[7] Reznor announced in late 2007 that Nine Inch Nails had fulfilled its contractual obligations with Interscope Records, and would distribute its next major album independently. The last Interscope release from Nine Inch Nails was a remix album based on material from Year Zero.[8] The first Nine Inch Nails album released independently was the instrumental Ghosts I–IV in 2008, followed two months later by The Slip. Hesitation Marks was released through Columbia Records on August 30, 2013. After teasing a release in early 2016, Reznor began releasing a trilogy of new releases: the EPs Not the Actual Events on December 23, 2016 and Add Violence on July 21, 2017, followed by the LP Bad Witch on June 22, 2018.
