Throwback Thursday: Incubus ‘Drive’
‘Drive’ was released in November 2000 as a single from Incubus’ third album ‘Make Yourself’.
It is considered the band’s biggest hit and breakthrough single, eventually reaching the top of Billboard’s modern rock charts and #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, “Drive” won Billboard’s award for Modern Rock Single of the Year.
The music video is based on M.C. Escher’s Drawing Hands. The vide was directed by Phil Harder, features a simple musical session intercut with animation of Brandon Boyd drawing himself. The animation was handled by both Boyd and drummer Jose Pasillas. The scenes from the official music video were shot in the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota.
The video was nominated for Best Group Video at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards but lost to ’N Sync.
While I love this song, I gotta be happy for my boys in NSync. Better luck next time Incubus.
