24 Hours is a 2006 mashup double concept album by The Kleptones. Like other albums by The Kleptones, the album intersperses quotes from movies and television in its songs.

In the three weeks preceding the online release, an EP was released weekly which featured one song along with two to three b-sides which were not included on the album.

On May 16, 2006 an edited version of the track "19:00 Careless Or Dead" was posted on the Bootie website under the title "Careless Or Dead (Bootie Version)".

It's not dead, it's just that it's been forgotten. Removed from our language. Nobody teaches it, so nobody knows it exists. Dreamers are banished to obscurity. I'm trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming, everyday. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. Things have just started." "Hey, thanks." "Not a problem!"
