New York Dolls is the first album released by the American rock band the New York Dolls. The album's protopunk sound is mixed with influences of glam rock and rock & roll. It was produced by ex-Nazz guitarist Todd Rundgren. In 2003, the album was ranked number 213 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.[4] The track "Personality Crisis" is ranked #267 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of "the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".[5]

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.[6]
