Pigstep is a unique music disc as it is the only one with a different base color. It has a color that is similar to that of the Nether dimension where it can be obtained.

Aside from that, the otherside music disc will be the newest addition to the collection. It is yet to be implemented in the game in a future update.

How To Get Music Discs In Minecraft

Based on the Minecraft Wiki, these discs can be obtained via chest loot or mob loot.

In terms of chest loot, varying music discs can be found in different naturally-generated structures such as dungeons, woodland mansions, and bastion remnants. In the upcoming 1.19 Wild Update, they can also be found inside chests within ancient cities.

Certain discs can only be found inside the specific structures:

  • Dungeons: You can find 13, cat, and otherside inside chests within dungeons.
  • Woodland Mansion: You can also find both 13 and cat but not otherside inside chests within woodland mansions.
  • Strongholds: You can only find otherside inside chests within strongholds.
  • Bastion Remnants: This location is the only place you can find the new music disc called pigstep.
  • Buried Treasure: You can also find mellohi and wait in this location but only in the Bedrock Edition.

On the other hand, in terms of mob loot, the other discs are dropped randomly when any skeleton or stray kills a creeper.

The best way to do this is by farming them. This is usually done by tricking skeletons into targeting and killing creepers using a simple mob trap.

You can design your own trap wherein the general idea of it is to get the skeleton to shoot at you while a creeper steps in the way blocking the arrow and taking all the damage from it. Eventually, the creeper will die, and a disc will be dropped.

The video below by Shulkercraft comprehensively talks about a fully automatic music disc farm that produces 150 discs per hour:

Nevertheless, you can still try and design your own contraption with the right number of resources.

Quick Tip: You can only get the music discs 11 and pigstep in chest loots. Creepers killed by skeletons do not drop these discs.


That covers about everything you need to know about it! The developers of the game should, hopefully, add more music discs in the coming Minecraft updates for players to enjoy.

Make sure that you have a jukebox first to play all the music discs. Unfortunately, it costs 1 diamond to craft.

Nevertheless, it is a great investment. This jukebox can also be a part of your Minecraft enchanting room.

You can obtain and play all the music discs available in Minecraft. Good luck and have fun!
