Mike Joyce (born Michael Joyce, 1 June 1963, Fallowfield, Manchester) is an English drummer. He became internationally known as the drummer for The Smiths.

While The Smiths provided Joyce with his first taste of success, he had previously drummed for Manchester band The Hoax and Irish punks Victim. Joyce was a member of the Smiths throughout the band's existence (1982-1987).

Immediately after the break-up of the band, Joyce and Smiths bassist Andy Rourke played with Sinéad O'Connor. They, along with Craig Gannon, also provided the rhythm section for two singles by Smiths' singer Morrissey - "Interesting Drug" and "The Last of the Famous International Playboys" and their b-sides. Work with Suede (band), Buzzcocks, Public Image Limited, Julian Cope, P. P. Arnold and Pete Wylie followed throughout the 1990s.
