There are two major ways you can easily get your hands on music discs. You can find them in Dungeon Chests, Stronghold Chests, Woodland Mansion Chests, Bastion Remnant Chests, and by Killing a Creeper indirectly. Well, 12 out of the 14 Music Discs can be obtained by Killing a Creeper. Normally, a Creeper doesn’t drop a Music Disc upon dying but if the Creeper was killed by a Skeleton, directly or indirectly, you will get a Music Dic from the possible 12 Music Discs. The 2 Music Discs that cannot be obtained through Creepers are Lena Raine – Otherside & Lena Raine – Pigstep. The Pigstep Music Disc can only be obtained in Chests from Bastion Remnants in Minecraft. Otherside Music Disc is only obtainable from Dungeon & Stronghold Chests as Loot.

The best way to get Music Discs in Minecraft is through the Creeper & Skeleton method. It sounds easier than it actually is, for one you will need to find a Creeper and a Skeleton in close proximity. After which you will need to get the Skeleton to shoot you, miss, and hit the Creeper till the Creeper dies. The best way to go about s to make a Creeper Farm and then find & tag a Skeleton. Collect the Creepers from the farm to a single area, like a well of sorts. There is a  game mechanic in Minecraft where a lit Skeleton Arrow will ignite a TNT block. So place a Lava Source in front of the Skeleton and let it ignite a TNT block. If you perform this above the well of Creepers, the TNT will explode and kill all of the Creepers yielding a lot of Music Discs.


So a  Skeleton indirectly killing a Creeper will get you a Music Disc in Minecraft. Here is a simple Creeper Farm made by the Youtuber Dusty Dude. It is really easy to make and will also yield a lot of Gunpowder.
