New York Dolls is the debut studio album by American rock band the New York Dolls. The album's protopunk sound was hugely influential on punk rock. In 2003, the album was ranked No. 213 on Rolling Stone magazine's list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". It was produced by ex-Nazz guitarist Todd Rundgren.
In 2006, Mercury Records (Japan) released a limited 24-bit remastered edition of the album and its follow-up, Too Much Too Soon.
All songs written and composed by David Johansen and Johnny Thunders, except as noted. 
Allmusic called it "a noisy, reckless album that rocks and rolls with a vengeance" and cited it as "the definitive proto-punk album, even more than anything the Stooges released. It plunders history while celebrating it, creating a sleazy urban mythology along the way."
The track "Personality Crisis" is ranked No. 271 on the same magazine's list "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
In August 2010, Morrissey submitted a list to the online publication The Quietus detailing his favorite albums. In it, he declared New York Dolls as his top favorite.
