The Living End Discography

The discography of The Living End, an Australian rock group, consists of six studio albums, twenty-six singles, four extended plays (EPs), four video albums and two compilation albums.

The Living End's first exposure came from the single "From Here on In" in 1996. The song was released on their second EP It's For Your Own Good and received airplay on Australian national radio station Triple J. "From Here on In" placed at number 49 on the annual Triple J countdown, the Hottest 100. The band's big break came in 1997, when the double A-side single "Second Solution / Prisoner of Society" became the highest selling Australian single of the 1990s. The single spent 47 weeks in the Australian Top 50 Singles chart and charted in the top 30 of the United States' Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. The Living End signed a contract with Modular Recordings and released their debut album, The Living End, in 1998. The album charted at number one on the Australian Albums Chart and has since gone on to receive a four times-platinum certification from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), after selling in excess of 275,000 copies in Australia alone. Six songs from the debut album were released as singles and it remains The Living End's most commercially successful album.

Their second album, Roll On, contained the singles "Pictures in the Mirror" and "Roll On". It failed to live up to the success of their debut album, but still received a platinum certification from ARIA. Modern Artillery was The Living End's third album, released in 2003. The album achieved gold status in Australia, making it their lowest selling album to date. The band returned to the number one position on the Australian Albums Chart with their fourth album, State of Emergency, in 2006. The album featured the band's first two top 10 singles in Australia since 1997's "Second Solution / Prisoner of Society" release. "Wake Up" and "What's on Your Radio?" charted at number five and nine respectively. 2007 was the first year since 1996 that The Living End did not feature on the Triple J Hottest 100, with only minor singles "Rising Sun" and "Til the End" released.

2008 saw the release of The Living End's fifth studio album White Noise, along with the double A-side single "White Noise / How Do We Know?". The album debuted in its first week at number two on the Australian Albums Chart, achieving a platinum accreditation in Australia. The title track climbed the singles charts to reach number 12 in its third week and was eventually certified platinum in Australia.

    No living orator would convince a grocer that coffee should be sold without chicory; and no amount of eloquence will make an English lawyer think that loyalty to truth should come before loyalty to his client.
