The following is a complete chronology of the various line-ups of the multinational alternative rock music group Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (briefly "Nick Cave – Man or Myth?" and later "Nick Cave and the Cavemen") formed in late 1983 in Melbourne, Australia, by five musicians, including several former members of the group The Birthday Party shortly after this band's demise, and is thus seen as its continuation.
In addition to Melbourne, the band has resided in Berlin, Germany, São Paulo, Brazil, and London, UK.
