During 1979-1990 in Los Angeles, the band was born in the chaos of the Punk movement and churned out their own brand of Ghoul Rock that later was labeled the Deathrock / Gothic genre.

In the beginning, the original lineup consisted of
Dinah Cancer - vocals
Paul Cutler - guitar
Rob Graves - bass
Don Bolles - drums.

The song "Partytime (Zombie Version)" made it onto the movie sound track for RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Partytime made full rotation on MTV (1984) and the song "Evil", debut on MTV's The Cutting Edge in 1985.

45 Grave are cited in several rock music biographies to being a huge influence on many of the bands that surfaced from the L.A. scene. Their hit song Partytime is still licensed for tv and radio ads today.

The bands momentum took a hit in 1991, when bassist Rob Graves passed away from an accidental overdose. The other members went their separate ways, pursuing their own musical projects.

Actually the band is back, lead by the original cemetery girl herself, Dinah Cancer, on vocals. The line-up as of 2014 is Dinah Cancer (vocals), Dylan Thomas (guitar), Brandden Blackwell (bass), and Tom Coyne (drums).
