Top 10 Best Incubus Songs

The Top Ten
1 Drive

I love Incubus! This song is amazing. It moves me, especially the lyrics. Brandon Boyd is so inspiring with his songs and artwork. The whole band isn't bigheaded, which is good. If they let the fame get to them, they wouldn't have made such an impact on their fans and wouldn't still be in the business.

I am reading "7 Habits of Successful People" at the moment. Living a proactive lifestyle is one of the habits described in this book. When I read this passage in the book, this song came into my mind. It reminds me of living a proactive rather than a reactive life.

2 Wish You Were Here

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 in the top 10 songs, in my opinion.

This should have been number one. The lyrics hit the heart of every man who is not successful with love.

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

3 The Warmth

This song should be #1. Whenever I'm feeling down, this is my go-to song. It reminds you that no matter what cards you're dealt, no matter what horrible people you deal with (whether it's 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. Its whole purpose is to reassure everyone going through anything that everything will be okay. Plus, it is musically perfect, along with the whole CD.

4 Stellar

We all know that Drive is only number 1 because it's popular. Still a good song, but Stellar deserves the number one spot.

The opening guitar riff is one of my favorites ever! This song takes you to a different place.

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

5 Pardon Me

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

This song is so dope! Seriously, so dope. Did I mention that already? Maybe I am on dope myself.

Such a dope song, the best chorus I have ever heard, my number one for sure.

6 Dig

The melody is just amazing. With some good earbuds or headphones, it's a very well-written song. The bass lines, lead and rhythm guitar, play so well in combination with the drums. The lead singer uses a wide range that fits really well with the melody.

This is by far my favorite Incubus song.

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

7 A Certain Shade of Green

This song is about how we just waste our time not thinking about what's going to happen in the future, and about stoners, for example, me.

I love both the original and acoustic version of this song. It is not about stoners either.

8 Megalomaniac

It was so hard to decide which song is the best because I love almost every song of theirs. But this song means something special to me, and live it's a blast.

High-energy song that'll never get old. Lyrically and sonically explosive! This is what made me love Incubus.

9 Nice to Know You

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

Cool song, deserves to be much higher. Catchy riff, catchy chorus 'Goodbye, nice to know you!' My personal favorite.

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.

10 New Skin

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 softer stuff gets old sometimes.

A great song, in my opinion. It has the funk elements from their first album and a great chorus.

Best Incubus song, heavy and awesome!

The Contenders
11 Love Hurts

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 heartbreak classics like Creep by Stone Temple Pilots and Black.

Great intro, addictive guitar work. Simple but effective. Soothing vocals. A feelsy song with soulful bass. Overall, this is a must-listen for Incubus fans.

Incredible song. The lyrics are deep, the melody is catchy, and I just can't stop listening.

12 Make Yourself

This list is ridiculous. All the best Incubus songs are not the most popular ones, as everyone else seems to think. The newer ones see the older ones! Give me some S.C.I.E.N.C.E and Make Yourself!

The lyrics and song as a whole are very relatable and inspirational. It should have been a single.

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

13 Anna Molly

Aw man. This song is amazing. At first play, I thought the song was interesting. But I stopped listening to it for a while. I heard it again and played it a few more times, and it just gets better and better each time.

Upon first listen, it calls for your attention with fast strumming and sixteenth notes. As the song progresses, the play on words in the title starts to make more sense. Amazing song.

One of the most unique and well-constructed Incubus songs out there.

14 Circles

This song is so nostalgic because it played in NHL Hitz, one of my favorite video games ever as a kid! So catchy too!

How is this not even on the list? This song has so much energy and a badass guitar riff.

This is a good-ass song. How is it not higher?

15 Vitamin

This is an underrated gem from SCIENCE. I love this song and New Skin, but this one to me is a better song overall.

Vitamin and New Skin are my favorite Incubus songs. S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and Make Yourself are their best albums.

16 Redefine

S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and Make Yourself were Incubus at their best. Hardcore riffs on the album and straight-up awesomeness.

Hardcore awesome earlier song by Incubus from the SCIENCE album. If you haven't listened to it yet, I would definitely check it out.

Oh, hell yeah, this song pumps me up! Especially those turntables, man.

17 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 in the top ten? It is definitely a song that gets forgotten about too often.

My favorite song on Science. It has a good meaning and a great sax solo. I also like the acoustic version.

18 Pantomime

Awesome song. I am totally in love with this song. Please listen to it once.

"In my fantasy, this is number one."

19 Just a Phase

Out of nowhere, a situation, a person, or a word can stir you up, touching a weak nerve you thought nothing of. Or you might 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 with 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.

20 Sick Sad Little World

THIS ONE! This one should be number one. Come on! Best song, best guitar solo, best drums, and the lyrics are just too great. Plus, playing it on the guitar is great.

This song is the one in which you wait for the instrumental, get mesmerized, and lost in another dimension, then thrown back to reality. This one is a complete joyride.

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

21 Monuments and Melodies

This is the best Incubus song, but pretty much no one knows it. The simplicity of Brandon's vocals has an inner beauty that showcases 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 haunting in this one.

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

22 Warning

This song is beautifully perfect. The meaning behind this song is deep, and the music video enhances the meaning in a good way. This song, Vitamin, and Megalomaniac are my favorites.

I absolutely love the catchy melody and meaning behind this song. It has always stood out to me as one of their best songs.

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.

23 Deep Inside

Perfect mix of rhythm, groove, energy, and explosion! Surely Einziger's best work. Vocals during the dirty portions are revolutionary, a totally new sound! I think this will be every guitarist's favorite Incubus song.

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

24 11 AM

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. It deserves its share of the limelight with their more popular tracks.

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 thoughts. Oh, I can't explain it! Just listen to it. The song is mixed up with feelings about the girl, indecision, love, and regret.

My favorites along with Love Hurts, Loneliest, Just a Phase, and Summer Romance... Amazing lyrics... really feels like I'm going to explode! I can't hold it! For real

25 Nowhere Fast

No one has said anything about this, so it is definitely a gem worth checking out.
