In 1988, Peter Quill had it on him when he was abducted by Yondu Udonta, the Ravager. Quill used it to play Awesome Mix Vol. 1, a gift from his late mother, Meredith. Twenty-six years later, when he was finally ready to open his mother's other gift, the Awesome Mix Vol. 2, he would use it on that as well. It was destroyed by Quill's Celestial father, Ego, who saw it as a distraction during his Expansion plan.
