The Top Ten

This must be the no. 1 because the meaning of this songs inspires anyone who listening to it.. just what ever happens, I'll be here.. =)


"Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
with open arms and open eyes, Yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there.. I'll be there. "

Such a meaningful song. Filled with memories for me, makes my heart soar every time I hear it. Just such an amazing song. Love it.
I love Incubus! And this song is amazing it moves me ( the lyrics) brandon boyd is so inspiring his songs and artwork. And the whole band isn't bigheaded which is good cause if they let the fame get to them they wouldn't of made such an impact on their fans and wouldn't still be in the business.
[Newest]This song is amazing! One of my favorite songs of all time

This song is amazing! Just the guitar riff alone makes this song great
Its just awesome spacy song probally my favorite. The guitar rift is just great, but who the hell is roxane?
I think all of incubus' song are really great and they just make song that wow everyone.
[Newest]Just goosebumps whenever I listened to this song

3The Warmth
How is this not on the list?! The lyrics have so much meaning that everyone just chooses to ignore. The whale like sounds that the DJ put in just create so much atmosphere.


This song should be #1. Whenever I'm feeling down this is my go-to song, reminds you that no matter what card you're dealt, no mater what horrible people you deal with (whether its a crappy girlfriend, co-workers, or like me in the military, superiors) there's always a brighter side.
There isn't an Incubus song that is more perfectly written than this one. It's whole purpose is to reassure everyone that is going through anything that everything will be okay. Plus it is Musically Perfect... Along with the whole cd.
[Newest]Very very good song! Like the intro and the chorus is awesome

best incubus song I've heard.
the video was only shown at night at MTV.. so if you haven't seen it, go check it out.
High energy song that'll never get old.
Lyrically and sonically explosive!
This is what made me love Incubus.
It was so hard to decide which song is the best, because I love almost every song of them. But this song means something special for me and live it's a blast

5Wish You Were Here
It's a real nice song... should av been like 2nd in this list!... but where the heck is "love hurts"?
I love the lyrics in this song, I mean come on: "The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket... I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless and in this moment I am happy". The whole rhythm of the song goes well and this deserves to be a top 10 songs in my opinion.
This should have been number 1... The lyrics hits the heart of every man who is not successful with love...
[Newest]Oh.. This song is underrated and that's a sure thing very uplifting song 4 me

6Pardon Me
Best Chorus I've Ever Heard.. A very Special Song.. Starts Of A Bit 2 Fast //
Such a dope song, best chorus I've ever heard, my number one for sure
... This song is so dope! Seriously... So dope, did I say that already? Maybe I'm on dope myself.

7Love Hurts
Incredible song. The lyrics are deep, the melody is catchy, and I just can't stop listening
What can I say besides that this song is amazing? It is simply powerful, and the best song to listen to if you are going through heartbreak. This song easily rivals with heartbreak classics like Creep by STP and Black by
I really love this song
[Newest]Love it, wonderful song

A great message: When we care about someone we know when they are not themselves and we help them uncover "what is covering the better parts of them. " We see what is best in people. We should bring out what's best in people we love.
My favorite Incubus song by far - it's so relatable, whether you want to take it as a song about friendship or love.
The guy I like, loves this song. So I listened it too. And I love it! My favourite song used to be "Love hurts", but it reminds me of him and his ex girlfriend (she showed it to him) do I don't like it anymore.
[Newest]This song should be the first one

9Anna Molly
this song are trully blow your mind when you heard it, but okay to be at top 5, goo riff and video!
Aw man. This song is amazing. At first play, I thought the song was interesting. But I stopped listening to it for awhile. I heard it again and played it a few more times and it just gets better and better each time.
The introduction... Man, who could ever forget it?
[Newest]One of the most unique and well-constructed Incubus songs out there.

I can't even explain it. It just has that certain effect on me. Not only that, but it's on one of their best albums.
I absolutely love the catchy melody and meaning behind this song. It has always stuck out to me as one of their best songs!
This song is so beautifully perfect. The meaning behind this song is so deep and the music video enhances the meaning in such a good way. This song, Vitamin and Megalomaniac are my favourites

The Contenders

11Sick Sad Little World
I love Incubus, this song is simply a masterpiece and one of the best alternative rock songs I have ever heard in my whole life :')


THIS ONE! This one should be number 1. Come on! Best song, best guitar solo, best drums, and the lyrics are just too great. Plus, playing it on the guitar is great.
Great, listen an you will understand
Pantek, me and my friends cibay and kontol always hearing it every time, very great song

12A Certain Shade of Green
I love both the original and acoustic version of this song. It isn't about stoners either.
This song is so catchy, and it's a stoner reference haha
This song is a about how we just waste our time not thinking about whats gonna happen in the future, and about stoners eg. ME.

13Make Yourself
This list is ridiculous all the best incubus songs are not the most popular ones a everyone else seems to think. The near ones see the older ones! Give me some S.C.I.E.N.C. E and make yourself!
Come on how is this noth on the list, this is my first real incubus song. By real I mean non-single song

14Just a Phase
What a powerful song. The buildup is crazy!

Vitamin and New Skin are my favorite incubus songs. S.C.I.E.N.C. E and Make Yourself are their best albums.
This is the real of incubus


17Out From Under
UNDERRATED! Take a listen, it's great.

18Nice to Know You
Cool song deserves to be much higher, cathy riff catchy chorus 'Goodbye, nice to know you nice to know you! ' my personal favourite


How is this not top 10? One of their biggest hits and reminiscent of stuff from "SCIENCE". Awesome song, should be at least top 5
Why isn't this song higher? It deserves to be top 10 in my opinion, one of their best

19New Skin
I like this song because its a little harder than their other stuff. I wish they would make more albums like this with songs like vitamin and glass. The soft stuff gets old sometimes.
A great song in my opinion. Has the funk elements from their first album and a great chorus
Before they were influenced by their record company
[Newest]When they still had guts

2011 am
Best lyrics of any song ever. I can just see the guy in his room trying to forget something bad he did to some girl, but she drives his --- ohh I can't explain it! Just listen to it. The song is mixed up with feelings about the girl, indescision, love and regret.
Lyrics and composition! Just awesome! The chorus line just drive me to the heaven! So as the lyrics!
This song is truly amazing!

21Are You In
From my top 20 Incubus songs, this is in the top 10 easily. This top 10 list is weird because most of my top 20 are in this top 20, except for 6 that are WAY out. This is one of their best though
Such a fantastic groove and feel! Brandon is an awesome vocalist and Jose is such an underrated drummer! Top 10 no doubt!
This song is amazing! How it is so far down the list is mind-boggling. It is in my Top 3 easily.


[Newest]Good Stuff. Who's the girl that sings in this song?

22Crowded Elevator
This is musically the best incubus song. It is a wonder that it never made it onto the album Make Yourself. it messes with time signatures, and though it is written in E minor, the major chord floats about the verses giving the song a very edgy and funky feel to it. Brandon holds out those add 9 notes like a pro. It is a powerful and very melodic song and it is the most musically apt song by Incubus.


Great riff, powerful chorus, and the rhythm/timing throughout the song is amazing
Heard for the first time on a Scream 3 soundtrack CD. First Incubus song!

23Deep Inside
Perfect mix of rhythm, groove, energy and explosion! Surely Einziger's best work. Vocals during the dirty portions is revolutionary, a totally new sound! I think this will be every guitarist's favorite incubus song.
I love the guitar work on this one
Good solo! 1 of the few they did... like it so much

24Blood On the Ground

Understated. Great message. Find yourself a back door. Now I am trying to reach minimum quality, and now its green!

26Aqueous Transmission
The most relaxing song I have heard. Absolutely beautiful. Give it a listen, it will move into your top 3 without a doubt, my personal favourite.
I have no clue why but this might be my favorite Incubus song. I love the vocals and the progressive feel of the entire song. Also, It is a great way to end Morning View.
This is the best song from Incubus! It is so relaxing and the lute sounds absolutely amazing
[Newest]Very relaxing music. Should be at top 5!

Hardcore awesome earlier song by Incubus off the SCIENCE album. If you haven't listened to it yet, I would definitely check it out
SCIENCE and Make Yourself was Incubus at their best. Hardcore riffs on the album and straight up awesomeness.
Oh hell yeah, this song pumps me up! Especially those turntables man


28Monuments and Melodies
Best incubus song, but pretty much no one knows it. The simplicity of Brandon's vocals has an inner beauty to it that shows off his talent as a mature vocalist. Absolutely lovely guitar work in it as well.


This song... every time I hear it I get stuck on all my failed relationships... his voice is so damn haunting in this one.
Best song by them. Listen to it.

Come on Guys - Listen to it and you will see that it belongs in the top 10, if not the top 5!
This is the BEST song of Incubus, without any second though whatsoever

30I Miss You
I love this song, Its like my favorite... Just awesome!
Yeah! I agree those songs there aren't even that greater than this!

31Punch Drunk

32Promises, Promises
The best song on an album that I really didn't enjoy too much at first, but after listening to it a few times, it might possibly be my favorite.

How is this not even on the list? So much energy in this song and a badass guitar rift.
This is a good ass song, how is it not higher?
Best incubus song... come on guys great main riff... that's it

Why is this so low

35Made for TV Movie
This song made me love incubus more

One of the best love songs ever...

"there's something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
Like suddenly something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing"
Great riff by Einzinger, absolutely superb

37Light Grenades

38Here In My Room
I love this song! It should at least make in the top ten

39When It Comes
How is this has one of the sickest scratches Incubus had. Not to mention on their best album. Such a great tune to just rock out to and enjoy the day. Bad ass riff too, my personal favorite. The Warmth is also their best.

40Beware! Criminal
This song has a lot of Nirvana in it, combined with a soft treble riff and Brandon's wonderful voice. Give it a try, you'll understand why it truly does deserve a place amongst the top 10 Incubus songs.

41Take Me to Your Leader

42Look Alive

43Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)
This song is amazing, the vocals, the sax, everything. I don't know how this song wasn't even listed. It's a favorite song of mine from Incubus.
This song is amazing how is it not top ten. Definitely a song that gets forgotten about too often.
My favorite song in science... it has good meaning, good sax solo... I like also the acoustic version

Honestly this song should definitely be in the top ten. The guitar part in this song is really amazing and gives the song and uplifting feel to it. Which is one reason why I like it so much!


46Southern Girl
Talks about that woman that everybody should know someday, who breaks all your ideals of the "mainstream perfect girl", creating a beautiful image in your mind of the truly perfect one. Brandon always fabolous with his lyrics.
What is this?
Where's Southern Girl?
It has to be in the top three...
The lyrics in this are just pure art


If only incubus made this style music sometimes still
Funkiest song ever from Incubus from their most overlooked album, Fungus Amongus.

49Under My Umbrella
HOW is this not in the top 10? EASILY in my top 5. The driving melody, Brandon's vocals at their absolute most raw, with some solid lyrics thrown in for good measure. Just 'because it's the last track from the album, could it be overlooked? GO LISTEN TO THIS SONG NOW!
The rawest song on morning view, possibly from the band ever. if you're a little angsty give this a listen.

50Oil and Water
I'm passive aggressively upset Oil and Water isn't even on here. My favorite song of theirs is Dig followed closely by warmth and love hurts, however, why in the f@-$:$:@/@/! :) is this song not on here? We have failed the beauty of this song, which is easily in their top 7

Awesome song.. Totally in love with this song.. Please listen to it once..

52Black Heart Inertia

53In the Company of Wolves
This song should be the number 1 so far for me is the best song of the band.
No doubt for me it has a great meaning, it is a beautiful song with very good rhythm, and I just still can not believe it's like the number 45... This is absurd, I like all their songs, until today they never let me down, but that vote disappoint me a lot.
No doubt this was one of the worst nonsense I have ever seen, ridiculous.

Has a big primus-ish guitar riff. Should be in the top 15 AT LEAST.

55While All the Vultures Feed

56A Crow Left of the Murder

Don't you guys love the lyrics? Light like a feather.. Bright like a dying star.

58If Not Now, When?
Good song sounds better live brandon voice is awesome one of the best bands out there the lyrics are never the same or get boring or get old



This is the roots of Incubus. Crazy, nonsensical funk rock.


62Smile Lines


I love how this song only has a few lines of lyrics, but so much meaning into those few lines. Plus, the song just down right sounds really cool on its own



67Diamonds and Coal

When incubus were actually fun. Great crazy song.

69Absolution Calling

70Talk Shows On Mute
One of the coolest song names I have ever heard and one of the only slow songs I can stand listening to, amazing chorus, cool riffs, the electronic sounds this song has it all
