This is the full discography of Wax Trax Records, including some planned releases that never ended up coming out on Wax Trax

  1. ENO* - Lion Sleeps Tonite (Wimoweh) / Seven Deadly Fins

    The first release from the label, though it was really just a bootleg pressing of this 7"

  2. Strange Circuits - Industrial Living

    1 For Sale from $28.41

    This release predated Wax 001, yet was overlooked in the WAX numbering scheme

  3. Strike Under - Immediate Action

    Wax 001 - Credited as the first Wax Trax release, even though it had a couple unofficial predecessors

  4. Divine - Born To Be Cheap

    16 For Sale from $2.50

    WAX 002 - A one-off 7" from Divine

  5. Ministry - I'm Falling / Cold Life

    WAX 003 - The first release from Ministry, and what is largely considered the start of the actual label

  6. Front 242 - Endless Riddance

    WAX 004 - The first release from Front 242 in the US

  7. A Popular History Of Signs - Ladder Jack

    20 For Sale from $4.48

    WAX 005 - A domestic release of 2 tracks from the If She Was A Car 12" that was released on Jungle Records in Europe, along with 2 new remixes by Al Jorgensen. This was supposed to be followed by a domestic release of their first full album, but that never happened.

  8. A Popular History Of Signs - Comrades

    Based on a press release from the era, a US release of the first album from A Popular History Of Signs was planned to follow the first 12". This never happened, and the album was never released domestically.

  9. Blackouts* - Lost Soul's Club

    WAX 006 The final release from Seattle's The Blackouts. 3/4 of the band joined MInistry beginning with their 1986 tour, after the band dissolved.

  10. The Blackouts - History In Reverse

    The first 3 songs on this compilation were the unreleased final 12" from the Blackouts. It never saw release, but was almost surely to be released on Wax Trax until the breakup of the band.

    WAX 007 - Ministry returns to Wax Trax for a few singles after releasing With Sympathy on Arista
