An American ska-punk band with metal influences. Formed in 1992 in Gainesville, Florida, USA, they began as a 3 piece power pop band consisting of Chris on guitar and vocals, Vinnie on drums and future LTJ roadie Shaun on bass, who was soon replaced by current bass player Roger. Influenced by the British punk band Snuff, they introduced a horn section of Jessica (alto sax) and Buddy (trombone) and after releasing their first album, "Pezcore", Derron (baritone sax) joined the band. Jessica left in 1997, to be replaced by Pete (who left in 2001) and Derron was replaced by JR in 2000. Less Than Jake have been on over 100 releases and are one of the best bands in the modern punk scene, due to their insane live show, intelligent lyrics and constant touring.

AWESOME BAND!!! My favorite band in the world!!!! They own everything wicked. Go buy their CDs!!!!!
Other ska bands - mighty mighty bosstones, five iron frenzy, catch 22, some old rancid, reel big fish, sublime
Possably the most generous ska band in the world. Doing benefit concerts and giving away free tickets are just a few of the things they do,and also they have the most killer Ska sound out there.
Less Thank Jake is the most Awsome Ska band ever.
THE fucking greatest and most kick-ass ska band ever to WALK THE EARTH!
Less Than Jake could kick 500 other bands' asses with their arms and legs tied together and with rabid ferrets duct taped onto their faces.
Less Jake is a (curently) five-piece melodic punk band out of Gainesville, Florida. Despite what most people think, they are not ska. They started off as a power-pop-punk trio with metal and punk influences, then the drummer, Vinnie started thinking, "Hey, some horns would be cool," after listening to The Specials. In their decade of writing incredible songs, they have undoubtably written some ska, but the majority is punk, albeit with horns.
The band has put out so many records it's not even funny, and is touring constantly, and they have been doing this for many years. They represent the punk mindstate, as they always do shit for their fans. Then after the release of Anthem, so many of their fans turned around and started calling them sellouts, just for signing to a major label (Warner Brothers/Sire). They said this, when in fact, the only thing that changed is now more people have access to their incredible music and terribly deep lyrics. I must admit, some trendhoppers peeking their way into Less Than Jake can get annoying, having to see them call "Look What Happened" "I Swear It's the Last Time", and seeing them just in general tarnish the loyalty Less Than Jake's fan body, it's bad, and it can hurt. The fact that they are on a big label doesn't make them sellouts. Anthem is my least favorite LTJ record, I admit, but overall quality is still uncompromised (She's Gonna Break Soon is a pretty shitty song though).
Memberwise, Less Than Jake is currently Chris on gu...
A truely awesome ska band
