Use the "classic Universal Scrobbler" theme? This can be useful for those who prefer minimal image downloads, a list layout for database browsing, and a simpler colour palette.


The Universal Scrobbler was created by me, OnDistantShores, as a way of meticulously upkeeping my account. It was created for's Hack Day in 2009 and launched later in the year, with a major upgrade in 2015. The Universal Scrobbler has been responsible for over 100 million scrobbles during this time.

Disclaimer: I believe in having accurate stats. It's this belief that gave birth to tools like The Universal Scrobbler. However, they do have the potential to be misused (e.g. boosting artist stats). Please only scrobble songs that you have geniunely listened to. If you don't feel you can adhere to this rule, please leave this tool alone. I don't condone any other use of The Universal Scrobbler.
