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 extended version of the track "19:00 Careless Or Dead" was posted on the Bootie website under the title "Careless Or Dead (Bootie Version)".
