Ang sumusunod ay isang komprehensibong diskograpiya ng They Might Be Giants, ang isang American alternative rock band na binubuo ng ilang mga artista kasama sina John Flansburgh, John Linnell, Marty Beller, Dan Miller, at Danny Weinkauf. Ang unang pagpapalaya ng banda ay ang Nobyembre 4, 1986 na eponymous na pinamagatang They Might Be Giants, ngunit ang TMBG ay hindi nakakuha ng tagumpay sa komersyal hanggang sa kanilang Marso 1990 na nag-iisang "Birdhouse in Your Soul" mula sa album na Flood. Naabot ang "Birdhouse in Your Soul" sa #3 sa tsart ng Estados Unidos Modern Rock Tracks at #6 sa UK Singles Chart at nananatiling kanilang pinakamataas na charting na single sa parehong mga bansa. Sa susunod na dalawang dekada, inilabas ng They Might Be Giants ang mga album ng studio sa isang malapit na biennial fashion at kasalukuyang mayroong kabuuang 22 mga album ng studio kasama ang anim na live na album, walong compilation album, 21 pinalawak na mga pag-play at 11 na mga solo.
