If Not Now, When? is the title of the seventh studio album from the multi-platinum rock band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Incubus[/lastfm]. It’s also a question we asked ourselves when contemplating on whether or not to post a top ten list highlighting some of the band’s most deepest, darkest secrets.

Well, I guess they don’t really qualify as secrets, since we found most of these on the Internets.

So, without further ado, we present to you ten ‘shocking’ discoveries we dug up about Incubus.

10.  Lead singer Brandon Boyd modeled for the GAP. Does he take one off for the ladies? Find out by watching the video below.

9. According to TMZ, Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger enrolled at Harvard university. Did he study Math-rock? Ha, ha. Get it?
