20. Warning (Morning View, 2001)

“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”

19. Adolescents (If Not Now, When?, 2011)

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

18. Monuments and Melodies (Monuments and Melodies, 2009)

“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.”

17. Just a Phase (Morning View, 2001)

“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.”

16. Sick Sad Little World (A Crow Left of the Murder…, 2004)

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

15. Deep Inside (S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 1997)

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

14. Nice to Know You (Morning View, 2001)

“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”

13. Vitamin (S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 1997)

“This is an underrated gem off of SCIENCE. I love this song and New Skin but this one to me is a better song overall.. Best ever Incubus song in my humble opinion.”

12. New Skin (S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 1997)

“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. A great song in my opinion. Has the funk elements from their first album and a great chorus.”

11. Make Yourself (Make Yourself, 1999)

“Lyrics and song as a whole are very relatable and inspirational. Should have been single. The lyrics of this song are very important. One of the most unique and well-constructed Incubus songs out there”

10. Anna Molly (Light Grenades, 2006)

“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.”

9. Love Hurts (Light Grenades, 2006)

” It is simply powerful, and the best song to listen to if you are going through heartbreak. Great intro, addictive guitar work. Simple but effective. Soothing vocals. Feelsy song. Soulful bass. Overall this is a must listen for incubus fans.”

8. Megalomaniac (Monuments and Melodies, 2009)

“High energy song that’ll never get old. Lyrically and sonically explosive! This is what made me love Incubus.  love almost every song of them. But this song means something special for me.”

7. A Certain Shade of Green (S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 1997)

“This song is a about how we just waste our time not thinking about whats gonna happen in the future. I love both the original and acoustic version of this song. It isn’t about stoners either.”

“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.”

4. Dig (Light Grenades, 2006)

1. Drive (Make Yourself, 1999)

“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.”
