The Lyrics

Start the song, dude
Be so pretentious
Count the measures
Lyrics get stranger
Why's the song so freaking crappy?
Strum those guitars through all this thickness...yeah
Over and over and over...

It came without warning
I'm so glad that this band passed me by
This song is so boring
This I'll let this one pass me by

I protest that
This group outsells
(Well, much less than The Eagles)
Sounds like they learned their angst from Staind
Come on guys, let's see you hoedown!

How'd these schleppers make the millions?
Writing songs on these slow-core rhythms?

It came without warning
I'm so glad that this band had passed me by
This song is so boring (boring!)
Don't think I will give another try

Writing out this comic symphony
For a band that's called Incubus
Watch fans' tempers starting to boil
Now I've bitched, now watch vote scores fall down!

It came without warning
I'm so glad that this band had passed me by
This song is so boring (boring!)
Give this dumb band another try...
When pigs fly

Very Red-Anty, Which isn't bad at all, but odd for your usual parodies. 5's

I'm with you, Agri...Incubus tunes are two words that contradict each other, IMHO. But a nice roast nonetheless. 555

DKTOS but, I like what you wrote. It does have sort of an Ant feel to it. 555

(Artistry) Thanks Matthias and Rick for the compliments. Aggy, you slaughtered this one: excellent satire. "Sounds like they learned their angst from Staind": hahaha!. 5s

(Artistry) But how do you really feel about Incubus? Excellent writing as usual, but the image of Incubus performing a hoedown made my head explode. :-)

Original comment remains, I guess we all have a little ant in us. (That's also probably Adam Ant's pick-up line. "Hey baby. You look like you have a little ant in you.... Well not yet".)

(Artistry) Wow. . .you REALLY hate Incubus. . .I um, think that you are very good at expressing your opinion:)

I remember this one vividly! I still don't understand why you hate Incubus so much but it doesn't matter this parody still holds up 6 years later!
Max Power - July 30, 2013 - Report this comment
Never really cared much about them so yeah, still a good parody.

I'm not a huge Incubus fan...I kinda like the song "Drive", but this OS is not one of my favorites either. Nice work with a nice roasting.
Red Ant - August 03, 2013 - Report this comment
great to revisit this one. (godsmack is worse tho lol)

(ABC) Other than "Drive" I don't know anything by Incubus, so I guess I'm missing out on the big joke unfortunately. Sorry.
