This was one of the first great custom songs and still holds up today! It proved that BeatSaber wasn’t just for more electronic music, but could be just as fun with other genres.

One thing that makes this song stand out is how well the patterns flow and Imagine Dragon’s rhythms match with the boxes.
Before the Discord channel blew up to the size it is today with only like 10 people in it (mostly all developers trying to mod the game), Rustic came in ready to map. Rustic has proved to be among one of the best mappers and is one that, even if you’re not a fan of the music, you should definitely still try his songs!

“Believer" thunders around a percussive backbeat and expressive vocals from Dan Reynolds to bring about a message of embracing pain, and using it as a tool for personal growth. It marks the end of Imagine Dragons' self-imposed hiatus that started in 2016.

The song was released on the first of February as the lead single for their third studio album, ƎVOLVE, and was featured in a commercial for the Nintendo Switch that premiered on Super Bowl LI. The song was also featured in the first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express remake.

Writer and vocalist Dan Reynolds spoke to in regards to this song: "‘Believer’ to me, is the first song I’ve ever written in my career that I could stand back and say, that is only Imagine Dragons—that comes from a place that is really authentic to us, it’s very percussive, it has the urban qualities that I’ve always latched onto but it also sounds strange and kind of grand"

    Can you still play this song? Because beat saber now has an official imagine dragons pack and believer is also in that pack.
