Biography

Incubus is a five-man alternative rock band formed in 1991, based in Calabasas, California. Members include Brandon Boyd (vocals and percussion), Mike Einziger (guitar), Ben Kenney (bass), Jose Pasillas II (drums) and DJ Chris Kilmore (turntables). Former members of the band include Gavin Koppel (a.k.a. DJ Lyfe) (turntables) and Alex Katunich (a.k.a. Dirk Lance) (bass). The band's name may seem a peculiar choice to fans, as an incubus is a type of demon that, in mythological lore, comes in the night and has sex with women while they are sleeping; it seduces them in their dreams The story behind the name is that the band needed to think of a name hours before their first show and, after a few failed choices, Mike looked in a dictionary and chose "Incubus" almost at random. Mike says that the name was chosen because it sounded silly; Brandon holds that it was chosen because they were teenagers and the definition had the word "sex" in it. "We really didn't want to rape women in their sleep. But, we were fifteen and it seemed harmless to us then, and we never changed it," says the band.

    Lyrics
    Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
    And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
    Take the wheel and steer
    It's driven me before
    And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal

    I dig my toes into the sand
    The Ocean looks like a thousand diamonds
    Strewn across a blue blanket
    I lean against the wind

    Lyrics
    A cloud hangs over this city by the sea
    I watch the ships pass and wonder if she might be
    Out there and sober as well from loneliness
    Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a mess
    I picture your face at the back of my eyes

    Tonight we drink to youth
    And holding fast to truth
    Don't want to lose what I had as a boy
    My heart still has a beat
    But love is now a feat

    I never thought I would be
    At twenty-three
    On the verge of spontaneous combustion
