Minecraft: the 13 music discs and where to find them

Collection of 13 musical discs in Minecraft can be difficult. Unfortunately, there is no super easy way to get them all, but in this guide we will show you the best and easiest way to collect all music discs. Let’s go.

But before you go, we have guides on all things Minecraft. If after you’ve finished collecting all 13 music discs, you want to know which are the best Minecraft skins of January 2022, then look no further. Or maybe you want to learn how to change villager jobs. We’re constantly posting more and more Minecraft guides, so stick around.


As mentioned earlier, there are 13 music discs in Minecraft. Collecting them can be difficult, but not impossible. The 13 discs are called 13, cat, blocks, chirp, far, mall, mellohi, stal, strad, ward, 11, wait and pigstep. While you can find 13, cat, mellohi, and wait dungeon chests and buried treasure, there’s a better and more reliable way to get them all.

The way to collect all 13 music discs in Minecraft is to have a skeleton kill a creeper. That’s why I said it wouldn’t be easy. For some reason, when a skeleton kills a creeper, it will reward you with a random music disc. You can put together a vine and a skeleton and do your best to get the vine into the skeleton’s line of sight without blowing up the vine, but it will be very difficult and exhausting to do 13 times.

What you will want to do is create boats. If you are on the Java edition, you will need to create two boats. Once you’ve done that, capture both the vine and the skeleton in separate boats. Stand behind the vine (far enough away that it doesn’t explode) and have the skeleton kill the vine.

If you are the Bedrock edition, you can craft a boat and put both the skeleton and the creeper in it. Stand behind the vine and the skeleton will kill it for you.

And this is the easiest way to collect all 12 music discs. But, one more remnant that you cannot get from this method. Pigstep will be the last music disc you will miss, and to get it you will have to find a Bastion Remnant. In the castle-like ruin, you’ll find scattered chests with excellent loot. If you’re lucky, you’ll come across the Pigstep Music Disc and you’ll have completed your finished set of Minecraft Music Discs.
