Clawfinger is Clawfinger's third album, released on 29 September 1997.

The first song on the album is Two Sides, which expanded the band's reach by using female choir vocals and a Middle Eastern sound. The rest of the album continues with the band's typical aggressive voice and socio-political lyrics.

Clawfinger contains 12 songs with an additional 3 bonus tracks on the limited edition. They released three singles (detailed below) and two videos (Biggest & the Best and Two Sides).

The album ended up being self-titled as the band members could not agree on a title. Zak Tell said in interviews that upon seeing the printed sleeve (when it was too late) he got the title idea "Third Time Lucky" and wished he had thought of it in time to use it. This title was relevant as the cover depicts a gun's barrel with a single bullet that would likely be shot upon pulling the trigger for the third time, as well as the album being the band's third album.
