The Jukebox is a block used to play music discs.
A jukebox can be broken using any tool, but an axe is the fastest. When a jukebox with a Music Disc is destroyed, both the jukebox and Music Disc are dropped.
|Block||Hardness||Tool||Breaking time (seconds)|
Pistons cannot push jukeboxes.
Right clicking on a jukebox while a Music Disc is equipped will insert the disc and play music corresponding to the type of music disc you used. Right clicking on the jukebox again will stop the music and eject the disc. Music discs only play once before they must be ejected and reinserted. Sound from the jukebox travels roughly 65 blocks in all directions. It supports 12 different songs, including Cat and 13. They are all able to be found in Minecraft's files.
The loud volume and long range of the jukebox can be used as an aid in keeping one's bearings in a cave/tunnel, although this is limited to the length of the disc.
A jukebox can be used as a furnace fuel, lasting for 1.5 smelting operations, but this is inefficient as it wastes a diamond and eight planks compared to just using a wooden plank.

Active jukeboxes give off a redstone signal when a redstone comparator is placed behind it; its strength depends on the ID of the inserted disc. The following table shows the redstone strength outputted for each disc.
|0||no disc inserted|
|1||contains a disc|
The associated block entity is used to identify which record has been inserted.
|April 2010||C418 uploaded this video to YouTube. It contains previews of many music tracks that were later added as Music Discs.|
|1.0.14||Added Jukebox and the first Music Discs, 13 and cat.|
|1.2_02||Before this update, gold 13 music discs were noticeably more common than green cat ones. Now, green cat discs are more often dropped.|
|1.6||Before, an SMP bug existed when a music disc was ejected from a jukebox. The disc would pop out along with a "ghost" client-side disc that only you could see. This ghost disc was not able to be picked up. This bug has now been fixed.|
|C418 first announced new music discs during Beta 1.8|
|1.0.0||Beta 1.9-pre2||9 new discs were implemented, adding up to a total of 11 discs, although they are not dropped by any Creepers. 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 12 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 discs because of problems with the spaces in the name.|
|1.1||All of the discs except for 11 can be dropped by Creepers killed by Skeletons. Also, they all have the same probability of being dropped now.|
|1.4.4||1.4.3-pre||The disc where are we now was renamed to wait and was made available in game. 11 is also available in survival now. It is dropped by Creepers in the same way as other Discs.|
|1.5||13w04a||Active jukeboxes give off a redstone signal when a comparator is placed behind it; its strength depends on the ID of the inserted disc.|
|TU9||Increased the distance jukeboxes can be heard from.|

- C418 has the normal player skin with a jukebox for a head, likely because it was he who made the music for Minecraft.
- The use of a Diamond as part of the crafting recipe is a reference to how phonographs often have diamond-tipped needles.
