incubus1 Lemme Get an Encore: Incubus

It’s not really news anymore: Incubus have returned to the road. For the past month and some change, they’ve been hitting the touring circuit, all in support of their latest LP, If Not Now, When?. Although a mixed bag of an effort, fans should still look forward to their raucous, energetic live sets, usually packed with tight, awe-inspiring instrumentation and a slew of nostalgic moments.

Naturally, you’ll witness cuts like “Wish You Were Here”, “Drive”, and “Megalomaniac”, but what about some rarities? How about a few older favorites? With seven albums in the trunk, there’s always room for a surprise. So far in the tour, we’ve seen an eclectic mix – some that even made this list – but still, the odds aren’t usually in your favor. Nevertheless, here are 10 solid tracks that could make any Incubus gig that much better. With months left in their itinerary, you just never know…

Holy shit Incubus is terrible! Man alive! 10 videos to show you how terrible they are. “Warning” is just too much, really! It’s funny you guys still cover their goings on so much.

I understand that their last couple few albums have been less than stellar, but how can you possibly say that Fungus Amungus, Science, Make Yourself, and Morning View were not all great albums?  Most bands are lucky to have one or two great albums, and they have four.

They are not great albums because I am no longer 12 yrs old.

Yeah, that makes sense because that’s what Incubus writes about, teen angst, puberty.  What the fuck are you talking about?  We’re not talking about Good Chalotte or Simple Plan.  None of Incubus’s lyrics have anything to do with being a teenager.  So just because you grew up, you can’t listen to the same music as when you were young?  If anything, it should make it better for you because it reminds you of childhood.  Do I think Blink 182 writes stellar music? No. Do their albums still put a smile on my face?  Absolutely.  If you can’t find enjoyment in that, then once again, I feel bad for you.  In no way am I comparing these two bands, it’s just an example.  If Incubus put out any of those albums today, I would still think they were great albums. So what does a non-12 year-old listen to these days?

Oh, and if you haven’t seen them live, then I feel bad for you.  Regardless of their weak catalog as of late, they still put on one of the best live shows out there.
