    Foiled is the fourth studio album by Blue October. The album was certified gold in the United States on August 9, 2006, and on February 22, 2007, was certified platinum. The album is also popular in Canada where it has also achieved platinum status. The album was recorded during the summer of 2005. Most of the songs on the album are older Blue October and 5591 songs, except for "Into the Ocean" and "Hate Me", which were written in early 2005 while Justin Furstenfeld was living in Los Angeles and recording the early demos for the album. Foiled was originally going to be titled Beyond the Sadness and was to be released October 11, 2005. During the fall of 2005 the working title was changed to Living Just to Watch It All Go By. The eventual album title Foiled was coined by Justin Furstenfeld and Jeremy Furstenfeld's father, Dan Furstenfeld. Two promotional spin-offs, Foiled Again, and Foiled for the Last Time were released in 2007. Foiled was listed at number 150 among Billboard's top 200 albums of 2007. "Hate Me" is the first single from the album. A video for the song appeared on VH1, and the song peaked at number two on the Modern Rock charts. The second single, "Into the Ocean", was also successful on radio, and the video peaked at number one on VH1.
