Shannon and the Clams are a band from Oakland and also, another era. An era when music was what it should be--catchy, energetic and full of kissability. Picture if The Crystals, Bad Brains and Wanda Jackson had a giant surf party orgy in a vat of ice cream and you have it. Shannon and the Clams, are made up of the fabulous Shannon (duh), Ian and Cody. Best part about these Californians? They hate L.A. Oakland forever.

Check out their latest music video by Dan Shaw and Cody Blanchard below. Also, get their new record before it's gone.
