- These tracks (except for "11") have been shortened to 30 seconds on this wiki, due to an agreement with the composer.
|Icon||Track name||Description||Track||Length (time)|
|13||A somewhat unsettling ambient track consisting mostly of cave sounds, metallic clinks, splashes, wind blowing, creeper explosion and muffled bow firings.||2:58|
|cat||An upbeat, synthetic melody.||JE: 3:05|
|blocks||An upbeat, catchy tune.||5:45|
|chirp||A retro tune with a sample from a 1970 MATTEL Program Disc: Bossa Nova Style playing in the background.||3:05|
|far||A calm, relaxing, nature-like melody.||2:54|
|mall||A calm piece of serene music.||3:17|
|mellohi||A slow, slightly melancholic waltz with a sample from David O'Brien's "Lonely Joe" playing in the background.||1:36|
|stal||A moderate jazz-like piece.||2:30|
|strad||A tropical-sounding synth piece.||3:08|
|ward||The record starts off with an excerpt from Chopin's Funeral March played on synth organ but goes into an electronic, upbeat, exploration and adventure tune with a dark undertone.||4:11|
|11||A slightly disturbing disc; the recording seems to be of a person running across (or maybe breaking) different block types and later on stopping to use equipment of some kind, coughing, and then continuing running with a hastened pace. The block sounds similar to that of dirt and stone. The person is struggling and haunting background noises are heard throughout the recording. Strange noises of barking or wind blowing are heard near the end before abruptly stopping. One can hear a hissing noise akin to what would be expected at the end of an older shellac record at this point.||1:11|
|wait||An upbeat and relaxing song, with a "blocky" feel to it.
This disc is the latest to be added to Minecraft, although it has existed in the game data for quite some time (as where are we now).

|1.0.0||Beta 1.9 Prerelease 2||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.|

- One of the disc names, stal, is in Swedish; "stal" means "stole", but can also be "stål" with the ring diacritic, which means "steel".
- Music disc "11", based on its data value before 1.13 and the redstone signal strength it causes jukeboxes to output, is the 11th disc in the game, and the only music disc that is shattered to pieces (this is why the end is static), lasts for 1 minute and 11 seconds and outputs 11 when put in a comparator jukebox.
- Chirp uses a sample from the Optigan disc "Bossa Nova Style". It also sounds very similar to the song "The Orb Of Dreamers" from the PlayStation game series LittleBigPlanet, which also uses the sample. The two can be compared here.
- If the .ogg file for the music disc "11" is turned into a spectrogram in an audio editor, the static at the end displays what seems to be Steve's face and the numbers 12418.
- The numbers are a visual signature, where "12" is hexadecimal for "C", and combined with "418" creates "C418".
- The data values used by music discs range from 2256 - 2267, while all other blocks/items use the first free data value available.[Bedrock Edition only]
- The discs appear to be based on older 78 rpm records. These usually held a single 2-3 minute song on one or both sides, were made out of a noisy material called shellac (which was notorious for its fragility and hissing sound when no music was playing, both of which can be seen in "11"), and were larger than later, 45 rpm vinyl records which replaced them.
- Disc 13 is a reference to ambience tracks, the name 13 is a reference to the 13 ambience tracks that existed when it was first added. The player can also hear a few of them throughout the track.
- The beginning of the disc Ward sound almost identical to Frederic Chopin's Funeral March, from his Sonata No.2, before the audio cuts and switch to another melody.
- "blocks" is the only item in the game with "block" in its name which is not actually a block. Likewise, it is the only such object that appears when searched for in the Creative item selection menu.
