Final Fantasy VII Remake has 31 Music Disc Locations. Finding all Music Discs unlocks the Disc Jockey trophy. They are songs you get from Jukeboxes, Vending Machines, Merchants, other Characters and from a Dancing Minigame.
None of the Music Discs in Final Fantasy 7 Remake are missable. You can still get all of them after the story in Chapter Select. In Chapter Select it even shows you how many you have left in each Chapter. In the Inventory you can also click on Music Collection to see all the songs you’ve collected. Each one has a unique number and name which are written out in the guide below. You run into most of these songs automatically on the main story path. Anything you’re missing you can quickly find from the list below and get it via Chapter Select.
When a song is nearby you will hear it and there will be a music disc icon in the top left corner. This makes them quite easy to find. You can listen to the songs at any Jukebox you come across.
The guide below shows everything in chronological order.
