A jukebox is a block used to play music discs.

Usage

Pistons cannot push jukeboxes.

Playback

Right clicking on a jukebox or having a hopper insert a disc into one[Bedrock Edition only] while a music disc is equipped will insert the disc and play music corresponding to the type of music disc 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 all available music discs in the game.

Tamed parrots dance when near a jukebox that's playing a disc.

Redstone component

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.

History

Alpha
v1.0.14 Added jukeboxes.
They supported up to 15 music discs, using their data values: 0 being empty, 1 meaning it contained disc "13", and 2 meaning it contained disc "cat". Values 3–15 supported any additional discs, though during this time only "13" and "cat" were available in the vanilla game.
Beta
1.6 The jukebox now supports more than 15 different music discs, because jukeboxes now have a block entity which keeps track of the music disc by its item id. A jukebox no longer uses separate data values. The vanilla game never contained more than 12 discs, however.
Official release

Trivia

C418's skin
  • 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 might be a reference to how Edison phonographs have diamond-tipped needles.
  • It's not possible to insert discs with droppers or hoppers, only by hand.[Java and Legacy Console editions only]
