Enjoy Incubus is an EP by Incubus released on January 7, 1997 on Epic Records. It was their debut major label release. It contained re-recordings of songs that featured on their previous, independent releases Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout Root Beer and Fungus Amongus, as well the previously unreleased song Version. It was the first appearance on a release by DJ Lyfe, who added turntable scratches to the Fungus Amongus songs, and also supplied saxophone samples. This release was also noted for its introduction of 'Chuck', the mysterious mustachioed man who has become an icon for Incubus's early work.

It is the only Incubus release with a Parental Advisory sticker, though most of their other albums also contain profanity.
