Battle of the Bands! Two of the Best Music NFTs

Ever since the NFT space blew up early 2021, our eyes have been peeled for NFT projects to create a music-centric utility that combines artwork and sound. We are surprised we haven’t seen more of this but we imagine this is just the beginning.

Two Solana music nfts have embraced this concept and incorporated some fun toe-tapping utility that would make any music lover want to break out in a cappella. Or maybe just pick up a guitar, crank up the amp, and shred!

Top Music NFTs

PixelBands

PixelBands is a collection of 4,444 pixel animated musicians — with an equal number (1,111) of guitarists, drums, keyboard, and bassists. Each of these musician nfts has a unique sound submitted by a community member, which can be combined with others. Each community member who contributed a sound will receive a 50% royalty for each sale of the nft.

Holders who collect four unique musicians will be able to form a band and create a song. Both, the band and the song can soon be minted. Full bands can be sold on the secondary marketplace and royalties collected for the song produced along with royalties for each individual musician. Pretty frickin’ cool.

Keep an eye out for Legendary PixelBands as they are auctioned off on Magic Eden like this one!

Blockstars

Blockstars is a collection of 10,000 voxel style musicians. Much like PixelBands, you can mix and match these musicians. You can actually climb the charts in a in a social and engaging music management simulation. Not only is each character completly unique and procedural generated, but also contain hidden attributes that impact the way you play the game. Blockstars will be making it’s debut on the Magic Eden marketplace the first week of February.

The team of three is solid. Places they have worked include EA (Electronic Arts) and Zynga. Projects they have worked on include: Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Toy Story 2, Mafia Wars and Frontierville.

Still wondering if Blockstars is the real deal or just a one-hit wonder? Blockstars obtained $11 million in Series A funding, led by the Makers Fund with participation from Amazon and Google. Seems like that would be a vote of confidence.

We will update this article as more interested and compelling music NFTs come into the space.
