Vinnie Fiorello (born June 24, 1974) is an American drummer, lyricist and a founding member of the ska punk band Less Than Jake. As a child, Fiorello's family owned a dog named Jake who was highly regarded. The band's name spawned from everything else being considered "less than Jake."

As the lyricist, Fiorello is generally regarded as the symbolic frontman for the band, despite being the drummer, and is usually the subject of any interviews with the band as it was he and Chris DeMakes, the band's guitarist, who founded the band at the University of Florida in 1992.

On October 24, 2018, Fiorello announced that while he would remain a member of Less Than Jake, he will no longer be touring with the band. After Fiorello's announcement, the band recruited Teen Idols drummer Matt Yonker as their touring drummer. On September 1, 2019, Roger Lima announced via social media that despite prior reports, Fiorello was no longer with the band in any capacity and would not be participating in the creation of the band’s upcoming album.

Fiorello has a daughter,[1] Liliana Rose[2] born on September 3, 2011.
