Long Beach, California's Clit 45 discovered their knack for punk technique at a young age. With members just past the legal drinking age, the band polished up and re-recorded older songs for its newly released second album, 2, 4, 6, 8.... We're the Kids You Love to Hate. Although Clit 45 doesn't veer from the tried-and-true approach of drilling guitars and hostile vocals (think the Forgotten or Pistol Grip), and they follow the standard youthful-punk format of the early '90s, they still get audiences hot and bothered without resorting to the pop-punk or whiny emo tactics of their contemporaries.
