Rattus Norvegicus (alternative title The Stranglers IV) is the debut studio album by the Stranglers, released on 15 April 1977. Rattus Norvegicus. Studio album by. The Stranglers. Live (X Cert) is a live album by The Stranglers released in 1979. It contains tracks recorded at The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm in June and November 1977 and at Battersea Park in September 1978. It captures the raw punk sound of the band prior to the more experimental music of their fourth album, The Raven.

The Stranglers' early work is most properly described as stripped-down pop played with a hardcore sensibility; fairly lengthy songs with frequent solo breaks, prominent keyboard usage, and occasional employment of vocal harmony sets them apart from their peers. But snarling lead singing that puts forth steful lyrics predominates here, clearly showing the group's punk affinity. Most of the songs on this album fit the description of hardcore pop to a tee, but there are a few deviations from this model

The Stranglers previous album, The Raven, had not been released in the US. IV contained, on side one, a selection of tracks from The Raven.
