This is the old MusicBrainz site! Its been condensed into one server, so may respond less snappy. MusicBrainz classic will live for as long as this server lives. Unless you are looking for historical MusicBrainz data, you should be using the new site.


Welcome to MusicBrainz!

What is MusicBrainz?
MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site. You can use the MusicBrainz data either by browsing this web site, or you can access the data from a client program — for example, a CD player program can use MusicBrainz to identify CDs and provide information about the CD, about the artist or about related information. You can also use the MusicBrainz Tagger to automatically identify and clean up the metadata tags in your digital music collections. Find out more in the introduction.
Use MusicBrainz
You can use Musicbrainz right now to automatically identify and label your music files — all you have to do is download and run a MusicBrainz enabled tagger. Read more about our taggers.

Alternatively, you might just want to search or browse the MusicBrainz database. If you spot a mistake, or something that is missing, you can even edit or add more data!

If you're new to MusicBrainz, please take a moment to read the beginners guide before editing the database.

If you are a software developer you might want to learn about the MusicBrainz client library / SDK. You can use the library to enable your programs to access the MusicBrainz database, both for looking up data and also for submitting new data.

Code of Conduct overhaul — Hello! Our Code of Conduct is probably over 10 years old and hasn’t had much of a review over time.

We gave proper definitions to “social network” and “online community” (and while doing that we split last.fm from “social network” into its own type).
