A jukebox is a block used to play music discs.



A jukebox can be broken using any tool, but an axe is the fastest. Jukeboxes also drop all of their contents.

Using a music disc on a jukebox, or having a hopper insert a disc into one,‌[Bedrock Edition only] inserts the disc and plays music corresponding to the type of music disc used. Pressing use on the jukebox again ejects the disc and stops any music playing. Music discs play only once before they must be ejected and reinserted. Note particles emit out the top when sound is playing.‌[Bedrock Edition only] The sound from the jukebox travels roughly 65 blocks in all directions. It supports all available music discs in the game.

Tamed parrots dance when in a 3 block radius from a jukebox that's playing a disc.


In the Bedrock Edition, jukeboxes disable adjacent hoppers when a music disc is playing inside them. Because the hoppers are re-enabled when the song ends, a system of hoppers can be used to automatically eject and reinsert the disc when it is finished playing, causing it to loop.[1]

In the Java Edition, there is no known way to make jukeboxes loop when finished playing.

Redstone component[edit]

See also: Redstone circuit

Active jukeboxes give off a redstone signal when a redstone comparator is placed directly behind it or through an adjoining block; its strength depends on the ID of the inserted disc. The following table shows the redstone strength output for each disc.

Power Level Disc
0 No disc inserted
1 "13"
2 "cat"
3 "blocks"
4 "chirp"
5 "far"
6 "mall"
7 "mellohi"
8 "stal"
9 "strad"
10 "ward"
11 "11"
12 "wait"
13 "pigstep"

In Bedrock Edition, they also emit a redstone signal when any music disc is played inside.


Jukeboxes can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.

Note Blocks[edit]

Jukeboxes can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass" sounds.

Piston interactivity[edit]

Jukeboxes cannot be pushed by pistons. They also cannot be pushed nor pulled by sticky pistons.

C418's skin
  • C418 has the Steve skin with a jukebox for a head, likely because it was he who made most of the music for Minecraft.
  • Edison phonographs use diamond-tipped needles. Similarly, the jukebox also needs a diamond as a crafting ingredient.
  • Jukeboxes are one of the few wood-based blocks that don't resemble any of the 8 existing wood-types, with the others being chests, trapped chests, note blocks, composters and smithing tables.
