I Believe” is Toki's theme from Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem, sung by Toki and Dethklok. It is sung in reality by Mike Keneally and Brendon Small. It is the first of Toki's songs to be recorded as a real track and released on a Dethklok record, The Doomstar Requiem.


I Believe

Toki believes Dethklok is his true family

I Believe is Toki's song expressing his feelings about Dethklok during his early days with the band. Like all of Toki's songs within the series, it is an electropop-rock track featuring colorful neon visuals of rainbows and animals. The overall theme of the song is Toki's belief that Dethklok is his family and that he was meant to be with them. Toki grows from a teenager to an adult during the visual montage for the song. It also briefly covers Dethklok's rise to success shortly after meeting Toki.

The song may be an homage to the iconic 80's pop hit Take on Me by A-Ha, who also originated from Oslo, Norway and produced music in the distinct electropop genre. The two songs share similar musical elements such as similar synths, chord progressions, and melodic structure particularly in the chorus. The music videos both show the focal character going through a transformation by entering a doorway.
