List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

This Damned discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Damned albums can be found at the top of the list. Since they’re such an influential punk band, let’s rank the best Damned albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in London, England in 1976, the Damned were the first punk band to ever release a single "New Rose" and album, Damned Damned Damned (1977) -- a true feat for an indie band in the mid-'70s.

To make it easy for you, we haven't included The Damned singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Damned album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Damned album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

This is a list that includes albums like their sophomore release Music For Pleasure (1977) through their more recent album, Evil Spirits (2018). This list of popular Damned CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
