Total number of albums: 9
Total number of past and current members: 21

Less Than Jake
How you know them: as Gainesville, Florida’s most famous ska punk band
Songs about their hometown: “History of a Boring Town,” “Gainesville Rock City,” “Look What Happened”
Entire album about their hometown: GNV FLA
Their style: thick horns, upstroked guitar, and lyrics that mix sarcasm with sentiment
How they got their name: after their drummer’s dog Jake, who was treated better than the humans in the house
Their latest release: 2013’s See the Light
