|Incubus singles chronology|
"Dig" is the second single released by American rock band Incubus from their sixth studio album, Light Grenades (2006). Receiving huge airplay from alternative rock radio stations throughout the United States, "Dig" peaked at number four on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. On the Adult Top 40 chart, it reached number 17, while just breaking the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #94.
The band made an unusual choice in letting fans help create the music video for the song by holding a contest called "I Dig Incubus", with the winner possibly having their video used as the official version. The top five contestants were announced on February 1, 2007, with fans then getting the chance to vote on a "Fan-pick".
Carlos "Kaamuz" Oliveira won both the fan pick and band pick with his animation. The video of the winner being announced was available on the contest website. Ramon Boutviseth was the runner up, and therefore won the Grand Prize.
On March 27, 2007, Kaamuz's video became available on Yahoo! Music. The final video was edited with scenes of the band playing the song.
The song "Dig" appeared at number ninety four for three weeks on the Billboard top 100 chart.
