Supports YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud & BandCamp!

Usage example

Some features shown on YouTube: Hydra - Discord Music Bot


Make sure you didn't disable private messages.
Once you invite this bot to your server, you will get a private message with some information about the bot.
If you are not the server owner you can still request this information with h?info.

At first I won't listen to you until you've set me up. You can do this by typing 'h?setup' in any text channel I have access to on your server.

After the setup, most of the commands only work in the music channel (except DM commands --> they work in DMs).

Channels (automatically created on h?setup)

  • 'hydra_songrequests' --> The channel you can use most of my commands in and of course the music search
    Join a voice channel and just search for a song title in the channel or provide a YouTube, Spotify or SoundCloud link.

Emoji reactions

Use the following emojis for easy command access:
āÆ = Pause/Resume a song
ā¹ = Stop and empty the queue
ā­ = Skip a song
šŸ”„ = Replay the current song
šŸ”€ = Shuffle the queue
ā­ = Add the current song to your favorites
āŒ = Remove the current song from your favorites


Prefix (h?prefix newPrefix)

Change the prefix on your server.
Keep in mind that I will replace whitespace characters and the '@' sign.


To enable/disable the possibility of loading favorites and playlists in the queue you can type 'h?playlists' in the music channel.
By default they are disabled.

DJ role

To set the dj role you have to type: 'h?setdj <@role, name or id>' replace this part: <@role, name or id> with the actual role mention, name or id.


If you find any bugs, need help or want to share feedback and/or feature requests feel free to join the Support Server and have a chat.


Most of these only work in the created music channel!


If you have favorited a song (Star emoji) it will get saved in your favorites.
To play all your favorites you have to type 'h?favorites' in the music channel.


To load a playlist from YouTube, Spotify or SoundCloud type 'h?playlist link' in the music channel.
You can also just paste the URL in the channel and add a '-a' at the end to load all.
It's also possible to instantly shuffle the playlist on load 'URL -a -s'.
