Loki? is the 1st solo album from Arnaldo Baptista, the keyboardist, bassist and singer of the Brazilian band Os Mutantes. It was released in 1974 after a supposed nervous breakdown and it is considered one of the best albums in the 1970s Brazilian music scene. The album expresses his angst towards the height of post-modern society, along with the suffocating aspect of modernity: pollution, superpopulation, loneliness, etc.

It was listed by Rolling Stone Brazil at #34 on the list of 100 Greatest Brazilian Albums of All Time.

The album cover, signed by Aldo Luiz, features two overlapping pictures of Baptista against a star-spangled background. He is shirtless and holding a pellet gun and a bullet belt. The image was taken by the porch of his house in the Serra da Cantareira region. The back cover has a picture of an angel statue he bought in a cemetery.

Arnaldo Dias Baptista (Portuguese pronunciation: [aɾˈnawdu baˈtʃistɐ], born July 6, 1948) is a Brazilian rock musician and composer.
