Top 10 Best Incubus Songs


The Top Ten

1 Drive Drive

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.

No argue

Beautifully written, majestic in its lyrics, auspiciously recorded. This is a song for the ages, and a centerpiece of late 90's rock music that helped bookend an incredible decade in music and usher in a new era of music in the 00's.

2 The Warmth The 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. - lamington

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.

The Warmth is my ultimate Incubus song- So glad it made it on this list, it's literally one of the reasons I decided to change my life for the better.

3 Pardon Me Pardon Me

Great song, love the grunge elements - kanetwigs

Best Chorus I've Ever Heard.. A very Special Song.. Starts Of A Bit 2 Fast //

When I first listened to this, I pissed when I realized how good it was and how it pierced my heart. I love how unique this song is; the perfect song to listen to when you're fed up with the world and ready to give up and start again.

Such a dope song, best chorus I've ever heard, my number one for sure

4 Dig

When you love, you understand the meaning of this amazing song!

Just a wonderful song that makes you think about your own life, as well as those that you love around you. We all need to dig within ourselves to make this world safe for our children and future generations. The video to this song is a creative masterpiece.

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.

5 Wish You Were Here

Should be at number 1. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

Great song yet underrated - kanetwigs

It's a real nice song... should av been like 2nd in this list!... but where the heck is "love hurts"?

Definitely the best rhythms and vibes an Incubus song can provide!

6 Stellar

This song is amazing! Just the guitar riff alone makes this song great

This was my first incubus song

I think all of incubus' song are really great and they just make song that wow everyone.

We all know that Drive is only number 1 because its popular. Still a good song, but Stellar deserves the #1 spot. - bkweigel

7 A 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.

8 Megalomaniac

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

9 Love Hurts

Best INCUBUS song. Period.

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

10 Anna Molly

Greatest ever really shows how good Incubus can be.

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.

Amazing song, had to listen to it twice, but eversince I listened to it continuously


The Contenders

11 Make 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

The lyrics of this song are very important. The message appliyes to me directly

This song is sooo damn good. How is it not in the top 10. definitely one of my go to songs.

12 New Skin

Extreme and accurate... a masterpiece...

This song is LIT what is wrong with you people it needs to be top -0 immediately - theyo

I like this song because it's 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.

This song SLAPS

13 Vitamin

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

14 Nice to Know You

Best song on the album, with such a brutal riff. I head bang harder to this song than a good portion of the metal I listen to. It should at least be on the top 10, definitely more deserving than some of the mainstream stuff on make yourself

Cool song deserves to be much higher, cathy riff catchy chorus 'Goodbye, nice to know you nice to know you! ' my personal favourite - wolphert

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

15 Deep 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.

Good solo! 1 of the few they did... like it so much

C00oest song I've ever heard. The genre swings in this song are just incredible, and the vibes you get from listening are amazing

I love the guitar work on this one

16 Sick 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 :') - MadisonLeeJong995

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

The live version of this smog with Tom Morello is incredible.

17 Just a Phase

Out of nowhere, a situation, a person, a word can stir you up, touching a weak nerve you thought nothing of...
Or you just experience a bad period in life.

Whatever is shaking me up, I always come back to the song which holds the essence of buddhism: "It's just a phase." The only certainty in life is uncertainty. Nothing lasts forever.
Not even this song.

DJ Kilmore bringing in the waves really fits perfectly to the theme, as no wave is eternal and also fades away fairly fast. For me, the whole song reflects tranquility and the equanimity presented by the ocean. Even though there is a storm at the end (The breakdown), there is always peace right beneath the surface.

This song's amazing. There is so much buildup, change in the beat, change in pace. Overall, this song is their best.

Holy crap this song makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up is so good!

What a powerful song. The buildup is crazy!

18 Monuments 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. - lamington

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

If you love this song then you should definitely love If Not Now When?

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

20 Warning

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

Awesome song.
Great melody, cool music video as well.
Give it a listen sometime.

21 Here in My Room

The piano melody though... - ZeroBlaster

Have to admit I'm not a huge fan, (I'm pretty old) but I love this song at full volume in my car going to work, I have honestly not heard anything like it

Not an Incubus fan, but this chills the spine

This song is sick

22 Are 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. - justincarrington

Great mood! Great lyrics! This song really should be higher

23 Punch Drunk

Great track!

24 Redefine

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 - Dorito

25 Aqueous 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

So relaxing and chill... Just lay there and listen to it, and think about anything at all. - JakeStephen

26 I 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!

One of the best songs I've heard in a while. Love incubus!

Love thIs song,I miss you Reno ���"

27 11 AM

My favorite along with love hurts, loneliest, just a phase and summer romance...
Amazing lyrics... really feels like I'm gonna blow! Can't hold it!
Ajjajajja for real

One of the lesser popular and underrated but excellent songs from the band. The vocal prowess of Brandon and the overall song and music is powerful that it deserves it's share of the limelight with their more popular tracks.

Lyrics and composition! Just awesome! The chorus line just drive me to the heaven! So as the lyrics!

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.

28 Idiot Box

Idiot Box is easily the best song by Incubus. It's message in the vocals, telling you to get rid of your T.V. because it lowers your creativity and mind, combined with the sick guitar and bass, makes an amazing song.

29 Mexico

Their best song

Why is this so low

30 Privilege

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

31 When 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.

32 Favorite Things
33 Version

Timetopay! To pay! Timetopay!

34 Nebula
35 Look Alive

This one used to be my favorite Incubus song, but it's still #2. - ZeroBlaster

This is one of 4 or 5 songs I've ever heard that I consider every note to be perfect.

36 Pantomime

"In my fantasy, this is number one"... - ZeroBlaster


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


37 Promises, 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.

Best Incubus' song.

Songs inspriration is awesome

38 Echo

Beautifully written, even more so sang, the instrumentals are brilliant, simple yet such a deep meaning. A once in a lifetime song that I hope to share with my kids as history of musical brilliance like my folks shared the The Beatles. My absolute favorite go to song for every emotion.

The layering of this song is perfect. An amazing riff, but only a truly talented drummer like Jose could hear what the drums should be. Imagine if just one of the instruments were played differently, the song would collapse. It's perfection caught

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

39 Familiar
40 Crowded 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. - bkweigel

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!

41 Under 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.

42 Made for TV Movie

This song made me love incubus more

43 In the Company of Wolves

This is by far my favourite song from them. I find it disappointing that it is also one of the least appreciated. Maybe it never got enough promotion. It gives me chills from start to finish. There's something captivating about the lyrics. Maybe I find some symbolic meaning in it, while other people simply disregard the simple rhythm and "church music" intro.

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.

44 Summer 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

Yes. That's all I have too say

45 Blood On the Ground

Should be higher than 36!

This song rocks hard! Should definitely be in the to!

Suprised I actually had to add this one to the list. This song rocks hard!

46 Consequences

Should be in the top 3...

The title of this song is wrong. Its "Consequence". - bkweigel

47 Out From Under

I agree, this song is underrated! It makes your ears bleed, in a GOOD way!

UNDERRATED! Take a listen, it's great.

48 Calgone

When incubus were actually fun. Great crazy song.

The last good album from this band

49 Loneliest

It's inspired by David Bowie, period.

50 Circles

Why so low? Great song

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?

Killer riff and killer song all around.
