This is my favorite band.. the only band i know of that can cause a total emotional response in me but be happy music as well. They have changed over the years but still are as good as ever. They are excellent on CD but you havent really seen them until you see them live - they are the best live band i've seen. They sound even better than the CDs and they are totally excited and interract with the crowd and are just fun. Last time i saw them live was in a big auditorium with thousands of people - and they played my favorite song for me (Al's War) cuz i kept yelling for it. Less Than Jake have been associated with almost all the good things in my life including leaving home and getting together with my girlfriend.

On a side note, many people wonder where the name came from. Turns out, one of the band members' parents had a dog named Jake. The parents would treat the dog like the king of the house, bring it leftovers, let it do whatever it wanted, etc. But they treated their kids as 'less than Jake'. So now you know.
