    Increasing The Volume on the Radio

    One interesting thing that most people haven't seen is that you can increase or decrease the volume of the radio by pressing the plus or minus signs. This way you can put as loud as you want the volume of the music and keep listening all K.K Songs as you like.

    Registered Songs in Stereo Animal Crossing

    That’s how you play the songs… but there’s more!

    Now that you know how to register the songs, you can also see the following interesting things you can do with them or that are related.

    Can K.K Slider Play Real Songs?

    No, you can't request a real song to K.K other than the 98 songs that are avialable. This includes all available and the secret ones. In case you want to know which songs are available, here's a video with all the songs:

    Next Steps after registering the songs

    There are many things you can do after you got the radio working as you want! Your villagers would love to sing songs and enjoy seeing them. Here’s how it would look like:

    But there’s a special case… Marshall. This villager is angry all the time, even while singing which in fact is really sweet. In this video you can see that he also gets so distracted that he even stops singing, which is hilarous! Play some music on the radio and check it out:

    That’s one of the reasons why Marshal is one of the most wanted villagers, it’s funny, angry, distracted and more.

    Hang Your Songs That You Have Already Registered

    Hang Songs On Walls in Animal Crossing

    As you maybe noticed, each song has a specific album picture and they look awesome. One thing you can do for repeated songs is to hang them on walls to give a more intellectual look to your house. There are 98 pictures you can pick, and some of them have specific references to other albums.

    Now, make sure not to get carried away, because you may get to a point where a wall may look overloaded with many K.K Songs hanging, we would suggest having a maximum of 4 per wall.

    Create Art Wall and Upload It

    Some players have also created some "art walls" with the picture of the songs and they upload it to the social media with a specific hashtag. You might want to do the same thing and share it with your friends!

    Songs people love the most:

    As usual, people have favorites, so in case you want to get them, here are the ones people love the most according to our investigation:

    • K.K Cafe
    • Drive
    • K.K Ballad
    • K.K Disco
    • Bubblegum K.K

    This does not mean that those are the ones you should look for. We would suggest taking this as a challenge and collect the 98 songs to know which ones are the ones you enjoy listening to the most.

    Did you know that you can play random songs at home?

    Try it out! If you have your own stereo in your house, you can open the menu of the stereo and set it to “Random” by pressing the Y button. This will allow you to play random songs when you change the room, which is amazing when you have friends visiting your home! If they don’t know how to do it, they will get amazed by the music and you can either keep it as a secret or share this content with them!
