All Minecraft Music Discs and How to Get Them

There are 13 discs. Pretty lucky if you ask us.

Music Discs were added to Minecraft all the way back in the Alpha version of the game. Several discs have been added since then, ranging from cheerful and pleasant songs to dark and ominous tracks. Listed below are all the Music Discs you can currently get in Minecraft!

All Minecraft Music Discs and How to Get Them

As of Minecraft version 1.16, there are 13 discs in both Bedrock and Java platforms (not including those added through mods). All Music Discs can be added to a Jukebox to play its distinct track. However, that's not the only important information to know about Music Discs! The lists below show you all the different discs you can get, as well as some helpful additional information about them. For clarity's sake, we've put the list in order of the Music Discs' numeric IDs.

Methods to Get Each Disc

There are a couple different ways to get Music Discs, but the most common one (which we'll refer to as the standard method), is to trick Skeletons into killing Creepers by shooting them with an arrow. We have a more in-depth guide on how to do this if you use the following link: How to get Music Discs in Minecraft.

The other way you can get Music Discs is via Chests. However, only specific discs can appear in some chests. Most of them are obtained via the standard method mentioned above. The following list provides you with all the possible ways to get each type of disc.

  • 13
    • Standard Method
    • Dungeon Chest
    • Woodland Mansion Chest
  • cat
    • Standard Method
    • Dungeon Chest
    • Woodland Mansion Chest
  • blocks
    • Standard Method
  • chirp
    • Standard Method
  • far
    • Standard Method
  • mall
    • Standard Method
  • mellohi
    • Standard Method
    • Buried Chest (Bedrock only)
  • stall
    • Standard Method
  • strad
    • Standard Method
  • ward
    • Standard Method
  • 11
    • Standard Method
  • wait
    • Standard Method
    • Buried Chest (Bedrock only)
  • Pigstep
    • Bastion Remnant Chest

As you can see in the list above, the Pigstep Music Disc is the only disc that cannot be obtained via the standard method, and must be obtained from a Chest in Bastion Remnants. This is likely because Piglins only spawn in the Nether and tend to spawn in massive numbers in Bastion Remnants.

That covers all the basics about Music Discs in Minecraft. We're hoping there will be more in future updates!
