Band Name Origins:

  • Yeah, we (heard of) all that women-sex-stuff, but here's the story behind that: The church in mediaeval times wanted to explain sexual dreams that way so the "victims" didn't have to be punished for sinning. That's it. Submitted by: The lucky one
  • Brandon Boyd actually did refer to his nightly emissions of inspiration like a Succubus coming to extract his soul, and the name just sounded pretty good. Submitted by: Elle

Stupid Band Names:

  • An incubus is a type of demon, which doesn't fit the musical style of this band, not in the slightest! Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
  • Why would you name your band after a greek mytholigic demon that preys on woman while the sleep to have sexual intercourse with them? That is just plain creepy. Submitted by: Travis
  • They named themselves after the guy version of a succubus. Dirty minds. Submitted by: Mike

a parody of "Drive" by Incubus
This has been a parody that I've been wanting to record for years and now I was finally able to do it. I've been out of the recording world for sometime and now coming back with "Road Rage" it's like I never left it. (Mp3)

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Pardon Me"
The Dated Lyrics:
A decade ago, I never thought I would be
at 23, on the verge of spontaneous combustion, woe is me.
Why They're Dated:
This song came out in 1999, Brandon Boyd shoud be in his mid-30's now. Too bad this was one of they're biggest hits, they have to keep performing this song even though the lyrics are outdated.
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
"A Certain Shade of Green"
The Dated Lyrics:
You gonna stand around 'till 2012 A.D.?
What are you waiting for, a certain shade of green?
Why They're Dated:
Well it's 2012 now, so this lyric is officially outdated.
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Southern Girl"
The Dirty Lyrics:
So come outside and walk with me
We'll try each other on to see if we fit
and with our roots become a tree
to shade what we make under it
Why They're Dirty:
It's blatantly obvious what they mean by "try each other on to see if we fit". By "with our roots become a tree" they mean having sex and becoming pregnant, so by shading "what we make under it" they mean babies. So yeah, it's for sure about not just making love, but procreating as well. Classy.
Submitted by: carly_carlz
"Here In My Room"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Pink tractor beam into your incision
Head spinning as free as Dervish's whirl
I came here expecting next to nothing
So thank you for being "that" kind of girl.
Why They're Dirty:
Pink Tractor = Penis
Your Incision = Vagina
head spinning = great sex
he expected nothing, but she's "that" kind of girl that puts out.

How to Pronounce a Band Name:

The word refers to a male demon who rapes female humans and thus eats their souls. His female counterpart is a succubus, pronounced "SUCK-you-bus." By comparison to an incubus, a succubus seduces male humans, and she eats THEIR souls during sex.
