If nu-metal was a full sleeve tattoo, Incubus have been an ever-changing henna design. While they’ve counted the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit as tourmates, the Calabasas quintet have made a career out of being mild-mannered misfits with sufficient musicality to survive in genre-ambiguous black holes that would swallow lesser bands whole. Since their Chili Peppers–y early-’90s beginnings, they’ve traversed alt-metal, rap-rock, post-grunge and even trip-hop, earning massive commercial success despite undulating critical response. While many of their peers were confrontational, Incubus soon added contemplative introspection to their emotional repertoire, with pinup frontman Brandon Boyd eloquently exploring himself on turn-of-the-millennium mega-hits like “Drive” and “Wish You Were Here.” Nonetheless, their live shows still whip up some good-natured audience shoulder-barging, with spanky beats, expansive hooks and Boyd’s semi-shamanic stage persona.
