Incubus is a five-man alternative rock band based out of Calabasas, California. Members include Brandon Boyd (vocals and percussion), Mike Einziger (guitar), Ben Kenney (bass), Jose Pasillas (drums) and DJ Kilmore (turntables). Former members of the band include DJ Lyfe (turntables) and Alex Katunich (also known as Dirk Lance) (bass).
The band’s name “Incubus” is said to have been suggested spontaneously by band guitarist Mike Einziger moments before their first performance, and was decided upon because the definition of the demon Incubus contained the word “sex” in it.
However, the more likely explanation for the origin of the band name is that it was taken from the chorus of the song “Mr. Nice Guy” by the band Mr. Bungle, whom Incubus was strongly influenced by in their early years.
