I love when clapping is implemented into songs.

blonde redhead - in particular
the kinks - everybodys gonna be happy
radiohead - we suck young blood
grandaddy - collective dreamwish of the upperclass elegance
blur - parklife
imperial teen - baby
modest mouse - all night diner
queens of the stone age- quick and to the pointless
frankie valli - can't take my eyes off of you

Doesn't every song on Weezer's 'Green Album' have clapping?

That album sucked by balls so hard.

(Quick story then I'll name a song with clapping.) I was listening to this Queens of the Stone Age bootleg before I saw them and it seemed as if the audience was clapping during the intro. So naturally, when I saw them I started clapping after Nick's intro before realizing NO ONE ELSE was clapping since Joey Castillo somehow found a way to emulate that sound.

John Mellencamp-Jack And Diane

Although there were claps in the song to take the place of drums, I think they're pretty pointless. If not, then that terrible Jessica Simpson song that samples said claps would definitely qualify.

I think it was only Photograph, the only song I sort of like on there.

That semi-recent Weezer song, "If you want it, you can have it, but you're gonna have to reach out there and grab it"...
Sorry if I fucked up the lyrics.

Pearl Jam- Get Right (at least I think they're hand claps)

Otherwise Who You Are, but I suppose they're there for a reason, since it's referenced in the lyrics, so... the hidden track at the end of Yield. Yeah. That one.

The only one that comes to mind right now is the Go Go's "Head Over Heels", and I think they're claps. Or rimshots. Eh.

For some reason the only one I can think of is that David Bowie song by Veruca Salt. Oh, Guitarme maybe? :erm
