Mob loot[]

When killed by any skeleton or stray (or wither skeleton if given a bow using commands), a creeper drops a random music disc in addition to its normal drops. Exceptions include the newest music discs (Pigstep, otherside and 5).

Because TNT ignited by a flaming arrow attributes all resulting kills to the entity that fired the arrow, a skeleton igniting a TNT block due to holding a bow enchanted with Flame, or shooting through lava or fire, also causes any creepers killed in the explosion to drop a disc.[1][2]

This section describes content that may be included in Education Edition. 
This content has appeared in Education Edition 1.18.10 development versions, but the full update containing it has not been released yet.
This content already exists in Java Edition and Bedrock Edition.
Tracks by C418 have been shortened to 30 seconds on this wiki, due to an agreement with the composer. "11" is exempt from this.
Item In-game name Composer Description Soundtrack title Soundtrack Track preview Length
13 C418 A somewhat unsettling, cave-themed ambient piece consisting mostly of echoed synthesized ambient sounds that closely resemble those that play in the game's caves, resonating metallic clinks, and quiet wind blowing. The entire track is wholly engulfed in reverb. At different points in the piece, muffled bow firings, a heavily reverbed hiss followed by a subsequent heavily reverbed explosion and echoed splashes can be heard in the background. The track goes silent for 13 seconds at the 1:30 mark. "Thirteen" Minecraft - Volume Alpha No. 16 2:58
cat C418 A light, looping melody plays on a soft synth and is joined by a synth percussion beat. A toothlike synth plays a bass line and some harmonies throughout and is later accompanied by additional chiptune-like synths that provide more layers of harmony.

At 1:46, what sounds like an interpolation of part of the melody from the track "Minecraft" plays.

The four-note pattern at 2:04 can also be heard at the beginning of "far" and "dog".

"Cat" Minecraft - Volume Alpha No. 19 3:05
blocks C418 An upbeat chiptune-style piece with a shuffling waltz rhythm. "Blocks" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 28 5:45
chirp C418 A retro tune with a sample from the 1970 MATTEL Bossa Nova Style Program Disc[3] playing in the background, along with a vaporwave-like version of Mall. "Chirp" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 20 3:05
far C418 A calm, relaxing nature-like melody played on a watery echoing synth, accompanied by other synths playing chords. "Far" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 29 2:54
mall C418 Serene music played on a kalimba along with other instruments. "Mall" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 27 3:17
mellohi C418 A slow, slightly melancholic waltz with a sample from a mellotron playing in the background. "Mellohi" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 22 1:36
stal C418 A moderate jazz-like piece played on a piano, saxophone, and double bass, with recorder interludes. "Stal" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 23 2:30
strad C418 A tropical-sounding piece with the main melody being played on a steelpan, accompanied by a layered mix of strings, woodwinds, and soft synths, and supported by a glitchy electronic tribal percussion beat, ending on some melancholy melodica chords. Bits and pieces of the melody from "Minecraft" can be heard throughout, sometimes played on bells in the background. "Strad" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 24 3:08
ward C418 Starts off with an excerpt from Chopin's Funeral March[4] played on a synth organ, but it is interrupted by vinyl static and switches to an electronic, upbeat tune with a dark undertone. "Ward" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 26 4:11
11 C418 A recording that begins with vinyl static, followed by the sounds of someone walking on or breaking stone blocks, heavy breathing, and rustling. Haunting background noises are heard throughout the recording, resembling the ambient sound effects that play in the game's caves (and by extension, the sounds of the disc "13"). After the background noises quiet down for a moment, metallic clicking or scraping noises can be heard, followed by coughing, sounds of page-turning, then more clicking or scraping. The background noises resume more loudly, and the sounds of faster footsteps or breaking stone blocks can be heard, which accelerate until they are replaced with dirt sounds as the background noises approach. A loud, distorted noise is heard roughly a second before the recording abruptly stops. At this point, one hears only quiet beeping, vinyl static, and a hissing noise, and the track ends. 1:11
wait C418 An upbeat remix of "Minecraft" with a cheerful, inquisitive tone. It starts out with some quiet synth Latin percussion and some soft synths playing a melody, and then expands into a chiptune-esque song. This disc was originally named "where are we now".[5][6] "Wait" Minecraft - Volume Beta No. 21 3:58 (Fades at 3:51)
otherside Lena Raine Starts off as an uplifting and happy but repetitive retro-style piece. Upon reaching the second half however, the song starts progressing into being darker and more sorrowful, eventually cutting off abruptly. A clock can be heard ticking quickly at the end. "otherside" Minecraft: Caves & Cliffs (Original Game Soundtrack) No. 7 3:15
5 Samuel Åberg A recording that begins with static and a warped noise. After a moment of silence, there is the sound of a flint and steel lighting, fire, a bat, and then walking. The walking becomes heavier and metallic. The sound stops with sounds of breathing followed by a roar which warps into soft, relaxing music. The music soon transitions back, to the sound of footsteps, lava bubbling, and amethyst. A warped noise and a sculk shrieker can be heard activating. Then a coughing sound, something metallic and stone and sand sounds followed by another warped noise can be heard. Then, after a moment of silence, a heartbeat begins and a rising static can be heard in the background. Sounds of deepslate can then be heard, along with strange noises building up and abruptly stopping. A crescendo of overlapping warped sounds is followed then dies down. The footsteps begin again, much quieter now. A sculk sensor clicks, and a warden roars. The wardens roar warps and slows down, and then the disc ends. "Five" Minecraft: Wild Update (Original Game Soundtrack) No.4 2:58
Pigstep Lena Raine An intense, somewhat hip-hop-style beat, along with more mellow parts reminiscent of a radio. "Pigstep - Mono Mix" Minecraft: Nether Update (Original Game Soundtrack) No. 4 2:28

History[]

Java Edition Alpha
April 2010C418 uploaded a video to YouTube, containing previews of many music tracks that were later added as records. (This video is no longer available.)
v1.0.14Music Disc 13 JE1 BE1.png "13" and Music Disc Cat JE1 BE1.png "cat" are the first records to be added to Minecraft.
Records are officially named "music discs".
"13" was an ambient track before this update.[more information needed]
Music discs have been added to dungeon chests.
Music discs can also be dropped by creepers shot by skeletons.
Java Edition Beta
1.2_02Before this update, gold "13" music discs were noticeably more common than green "cat" ones. Now, green "cat" discs are more often dropped.
August 1, 2011C418 announces new music discs.

These are stored along with the first discs, 13.mus and cat.mus, (which have been decoded as 13.ogg and cat.ogg respectively). Before this update, there were 10 unused music files, now only one remains unused, which is the song "where are we now". "Where are we now" was not added with the rest of the new 9 music discs because of problems with the spaces in the name.[5][6]
1.111w50aAll of the music discs, except for "11", can now be dropped by creepers killed by skeletons.
All music discs now have the same probability of being dropped.
1.4.41.4.3Music Disc Wait JE1 BE1.png The disc "where are we now" has been renamed to "wait" and made available in game.[5][6]
The music disc "11" is now available in survival. It is dropped by creepers in the same way as other discs.
1.513w04aActive jukeboxes now give off a redstone signal when a redstone comparator is placed behind it; its strength depends on the ID of the inserted disc.
1.6.113w24aCustom music discs can now be made using resource packs.
Before this version, "cat" and "13" were the only discs in .ogg format, all the other discs were in .mus format, which was decrypted by Minecraft on-the-fly.

Trivia[]

Note red.png
This page would benefit from the addition of more sounds. 
Please remove this notice once you've added suitable sounds to the article.
The specific instructions are: Upload the first ten seconds or so of "ward" as it appears in game, and "ward" from the OST, to highlight the differences in the introductory section
