How to Get Music Discs in Minecraft

  • Dungeon Chests
  • Creeper Drops

Music discs can be obtained in a couple of ways. First, you’ve got a chance of finding them inside Dungeon Chests which can be found in dungeons, strongholds and abandoned mine shafts. However, the odds aren’t exactly in your favor, with music discs being a particularly rare item, you’ve got less than a 1 in 100 chance of finding one.

Alternatively, players can get music discs in Minecraft by making sure that a Creeper is killed by a Skeleton or Stray’s arrow. Your best bet of doing this is to find a Creeper and bring it towards a Skeleton.

Hit the Creeper with an Iron Sword a few times to weaken it, and then let the Skeleton finish it off with an arrow. This will make the Creeper drop a Music Disc alongside the other usual item drops.

How to Get Music to My Ears Achievement

To get the Music to My Ears achievement or trophy in Minecraft, players have to play a music disc on a jukebox. To build a jukebox, you’ll need a bunch of any type of planks and a single diamond. Place the diamond in the center of a 3×3 crafting table, and surround it with planks and this’ll result in your crafting a jukebox.

Now that you’ve got this, right-click on the jukebox (or press L2/ LT/ ZL) while you’ve got the music disc equipped and you’ll begin playing the music. If you want it to stop, simply right click with your mouse or press L2, LT or ZL again.

That’s everything you need to know to get music discs in Minecraft. For more tips, tricks, and guides on Minecraft, be sure to search for Twinfinite or check out more of our guides on the game down below.
