After playing various shows at private and school parties and recording several demo tapes, Incubus releasedtheirfirstalbumFungusAmongus in 1995. The album had a hard rock sound with major elements of funk andjazz,whichdevelopedfurther with their followingalbumS.C.I.E.N.C.E.in 1997. After the release of S.C.I.E.N.C.E.,Incubusreplaced DJ Lyfewith DJ Chris Kilmore due to creativedifferences. The 1999 album Make Yourself marked akindofbreakthrough for theband, as they got more and more popular (mostlybecause of the song Drive, which had a lotofairplay).Building off thesuccess of their previous album, Incubus released Morning Viewin2001, an album that wasmuchmellowerthan theirprevious releases.

At the end of 2003, Incubus announced that bassist Dirk Lance had been replaced byformer Roots guitaristBenKenney,whichultimatelyleadto the creation of their new sound. After a creative pause, they released A Crow LeftOfTheMurder,which sounded nothing like anyprevious material released. After doing their first world tour in2004,Incubusworked on variousmaterial throughout 2005. In 2006,Incubus released their 5th studio album LightGrenades,which tookthe band's soundto a different approach, yet again. Incubussupported their latest album with the liveDVD LookAlive,which featured manysongs off Light Grenades and other recent works.Their latest studio album, IfNot Now,When?,released in 2011,softened down the sound of Incubus that many fans missed.
