The solo is pretty much exactly the same, just at a different tempo. I actually think that's really cool; to be able to transplant a solo to a completely different song. Sublime did that kind of shit all the time.

As for Still Not a Player; I love jamming that track. I view it in the same light as their 'covers' of No Scrubs and Like a Virgin; just some light-hearted fun.

Voted 'Hold Me Down' again.

I'm kinda indifferent to 'Martini': don't love it, don't hate it. It does give me that Matchbox Twenty 'Disease' vibe. But that's cool.

Rebel girls .... wow

I never heard this one before. Why was it left off INNW??? It's not the best song in the world but this + surface to air would have rounded it out a little better

Incubus Survivor: B-sides (Round 3)

Postby Jelger » Fri Sep 29, 2017 11:12 am

Hi guys! How's everyone? Next up: B-sides! For everybody who is new to these things, we already tackled Fungus Amongus , S.C.I.E.N.C.E , Make Yourself, Morning View, A Crow Left of the Murder, Light Grenades, If Not Now, When?, Trust Fall (Side A) and 8. Remember to vote your LEAST favorite. There was some confusion about that, but if you vote your favorite... it might be gone soon!

Martini is out! It's not ranked high on my personal list either. Maybe it's because it has the same solo as Rogues, maybe it's because I just dislike the chorus. But whatever it is, it's out. And since a lot of these b-sides don't have a live video, we can just carry on voting!

VOTE

So let's go ahead and VOTE here on your LEAST FAVORITE B-side. I'll try to post a new round every two or three days and will also post the survivor over at /r/incubus.

VOTE

Songs left:
Crowded Elevator
Anything

Monuments and Melodies

Today we say goodbye to Rebel Girls. As with The Original, I cannot pretend I like this song. It's probably my least favorite Incubus-song ever. The intro, the way the song flows, the lyrics, the lack of any pay-off in the song. I just don't like it. I think it's a real shame the band choose to play this song on the Honda Civic tour and not another b-side. Enjoy a live version from that tour here.

VOTE

So let's go ahead and VOTE here on your LEAST FAVORITE B-side. I'll try to post a new round every two or three days and will also post the survivor over at /r/incubus.

Thank god for that - from the man who brought us the most beautiful song-length metaphor in recorded history with Drive to then do a song with the line "Rebel girls tearing it up"... not a good moment

This place is trying to... vote Hold Me Down out. And succeeded. It's an ok-song to me. Bit generic, bit bland, but entirely inoffensive. I can't get mad at it or about it. It's just ok. I understand why it wasn't on an album, but I think that the more energetic vibe might have helped If Not Now When a little.

'Anything' and 'Black Heart Inertia' can both go at this point. I voted 'Anything', though.

Um..'Nimble Bastard'. LOL That's one of, if not the best video they've ever made.

They also have a video for 'Circles' . It's a performance video just like NTKY. 'Love Hurts', as well, which is just LG tour footage, really. And ''Adolescents'.

Yikes I can't believe I forgot about the cat video!!! But yeah, that's more than enough material to do a survivor.

I don't owe anything to you, so I vote you out. The only Morning View b-side of the bunch (shame we never heard Big Kitten, Small Litter Box, that sounds interesting). A typical b-side if you ask me. It's not better than anything on Morning View. Still, it's a decent albeit a bit boring track. Not played live, but once rehearsed at HQ, with Brandon on drums. Maybe they thought about playing it on Morning View-night, just like Crowded Elevator? Check that out here.

Hopefully make a move is given the boot. The other stealth songs are way better

Make A Move is out. It seemed to be on a few people's radar from the get go, and to be honest, I didn't really know why. Sure, not the most innovative song, but energetic, with some nice lyrics (You see the apple hanging on the tree, but missed the orchard in your gaze). Another b-side that never saw a live performance.

Laughable that BHI outperformed this one. It's pretty good and has a good video too
