Incubus was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, bassist Alex Katunich and drummer Jose Pasillas, while the members were in high school. They existed as a band for some time before they gave themselves a name, having only chosen the band's name 'Incubus' when required to supply a band name for an upcoming show. The band's early shows were frequently at nightclubs on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip, including such well-known venues as the Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy and the Troubadour.

Incubus produced many of their early recordings with Jim Wirt and Chillum Records in a Santa Monica studio, only able to work on their music during hours in which they were not in school. In 1995, Incubus added Gavin Koppell (known by his stage name DJ Lyfe) to the band and recorded their first two song EP, Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout Root Beer. This was followed by the debut album Fungus Amongus, also recorded with Wirt and released on Incubus' own label Stopuglynailfungus Music. After the release of Fungus Amongus, Incubus signed with Immortal Records, later to become Epic Records. The 1997 six-track EP Enjoy Incubus was the band's first major-label release and was created so the band could represent a recording while touring with Korn in Europe.

Incubus is a Grammy-nominated Alternative rock band based out of Calabasas, California.
They're named after an evil spirit who has sex with women while they sleep. The name does not fit their personality, as they are known as nice guys. When Incubus formed they did not know the name means "A demon that rapes a sleeping woman." One of them was reading a magazine and thought the word sounded interesting.
They played a show in New York City the week of September 11, 2001. They were the only major band who did not cancel their show the week of the attacks.
Brandon Boyd and Mike Einziger's brother play in a band called Audiovent.
When Mike Einziger was 17, he auditioned to be the guitarist in Alanis Morissette's Band.
