The releases of Australian pop rock group Men at Work includes three studio albums, four live albums, eleven compilation albums, three extended plays, two video albums and 13 singles. Their No. 1 singles in the United States on Billboard Hot 100 were “Who Can It Be Now?” and “Down Under”, while their No. 1 Billboard 200 album was Business as Usual. Both “Down Under” and Business as Usual were also No. 1 in Australia, New Zealand and United Kingdom.

They won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1983, they were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1994, and they have sold over 30 million albums worldwide. In May 2001, “Down Under” was listed at No. 4 on the APRA Top 30 Australian songs and Business as Usual appeared in the book 100 Best Australian Albums (October 2010).

In 1984 Speiser and Rees were asked to leave the group, leaving Hay, Ham and Strykert. During the recording of the Two Hearts album, Strykert decided to leave. Soon after the release of Two Hearts, Ham left also, leaving Hay as the sole remaining member. From 1996 until 2002 Hay and Ham toured the world as Men at Work. On 19 April 2012, Ham was found dead at his home from an apparent heart attack.

In 2019, Hay revived the Men at Work moniker and began touring with the assistance of a backing band including none of the other original members.
