@incubusofficial hated nu-metal before hating nu-metal was cool
The much-maligned subgenre is enjoying a rosy reappraisal in the media, but Incubus cut their ties to it even before its early-2000s fall from grace.
The 1990s are far enough gone that the voracious nostalgia cycle has begun to nibble at nu-metal. That much-maligned genre became the pop-facing side of metal in the late 90s, when Korn and Limp Bizkit competed with N-Sync, the Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears to get videos on Total Request Live. People who were in junior high when Kid Rock dropped Devil Without a Cause in 1998 are now old enough to own houses, have kids, and contribute to retirement accounts (though let's be honest, nobody in their 30s or younger today is ever gonna be able to retire). People with gray hairs and back problems get misty about Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach screaming that he doesn't give a fuck if he cuts his arm. And Incubus—once the prettiest boys in nu-metal—are one of the biggest acts at this year's Riot Fest.Incubus formed in 1991, while the core members were still students at Calabasas High School northwest of Los Angeles. At first they occupied a gray area between several kinds of alt-rock: they played funk-metal harder than the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they were sillier than most self-respecting radio-rock acts, and they used too much turntable scratching for the jam-band circuit. As nu-metal began its ascent, though, Incubus streamlined their sound and made it more accessibly aggressive, falling perfectly in sync with metal's newest pop manifestation.
