"New Skin" is a song by American alternative rock band Incubus and was released as the second single from its second album, S.C.I.E.N.C.E.. It reached #21 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart in 1998. This song originally appeared on the demo Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout Root Beer in 1995. It was featured as the intro song to the PC game Motocross Madness 2 developed by Rainbow Studios. The song's bridge quotes Buckminster Fuller's quote, "Up to the Twentieth Century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see, and hear. Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality."

The song was covered by The One Hundred for the Metal Hammer Goes '90s cover album.[1]

New Skin was ranked #1 by Billboard on their list of Incubus' 11 greatest songs.[2]
