A deeply unsettling 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 distorted noises that could be 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.
An upbeat remix of "Minecraft". This disc was originally named "where are we now".
The only disc that may be obtained exclusively in the Nether, in bastion remnants. It has an intense beat, along with more mellow parts further in reminiscent of a radio. Frying bacon can be heard in the background.
The music discs can be played on a jukebox by right-clicking on it.
If the player places a comparator besides a jukebox, the intensity of the redstone signal depends on the disc currently played, with the following values :
9 new music discs have been 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 10 unused music files, now only one remains unused, which is the song "where are we now". "Where are we now" has not added with the rest of the new 9 music discs because of problems with the spaces in the name.
Before The Flattening, data values used by music discs ranged from 2256 to 2267, while all other blocks/items used the first free data value available.
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 the 45-RPM vinyl records that replaced them.
The title "13" is a reference to the 13 ambience tracks that existed when the disc was added. A few of these can be heard throughout the track.
In Legacy Console Editions, the track "dog" is appended to the "cat" music disc. Once "cat" is done playing and the soundtrack fades out, "dog" begins playing for another two minutes or so, making this version of "cat" the longest music disc in the game.
The "blocks" disc is one of the only non-block items in the game that has the word "block" in its name, the other being the minecart with command block. That makes it the only item that appears when searched for in the Creative item selection menu.
Chirp uses the same accompaniment samples as "The Orb of Dreamers" from the LittleBigPlanet series. The samples come from the Optigan disc "Bossa Nova Style". C418 stated that it was coincidental.
The music disc "wait", originally titled "where are we now", was finally added to Java Edition 1.4.3 after existing solely in the game's files for an unspecified amount of time.
The title "Stal" is a Swedish word meaning stole in English and a Polish word meaning steel.
This could be the Swedish word stål (with an added ring diacritic), which would mean steel in English.
Disc "11" is the 11th music disc in the game, according to its data value before Java Edition 1.13 and the Redstone signal strength it causes jukeboxes to output.
Disc "11" is the only visibly damaged music disc (this is possibly the reason why the disc sounds distorted).
Disc "11" lasts for 1 minute, 11 seconds and 111 milliseconds.
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 "C" is hexadecimal for "12", and combined with "418" creates "C418" (the producer of the music from music discs, except for "Pigstep").
"Pigstep" is unique in a few different ways. It is the only music disc to have a different color for the groove part, it is the only disc not composed by C418, it is the only disc to have its name capitalized, it is the disc that has the fastest beat, and it is the only disc that is non-renewable and is obtainable exclusively through chest loot, they can only be found in Bastion Remnant(s)
