"Tinfoil", initially, was included as a part of "Powerless", but eventually was separated into its own track.
"Tinfoil" is one of only two Living Things songs to not receive an official remix, with "In My Remains" being the other.
Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.

"Tinfoil" has never been performed in full, but a shorter version of the song in C# minor was used to open either the show or encore in conjunction with "Faint" throughout the Living Things cycle. It debuted at the Music For Relief/Power The World as the opener for the show, and was played at every headlining show of the European tour. Starting with Honda Civic Tour, "Tinfoil" opened the show with "Faint" in Set A and opened the encore with "Faint" in Set B. It was never played in any other position. In 2013, it was dropped from the festival version of Set B, since there was no encore being played in that set.
Mike played guitar, almost always backstage, on "Tinfoil." A few times, he has come on stage during the song, like at the Adelaide, Australia 2013 show.
Throughout the short three show run in January of 2014, "Faint" always had a brief sample of "Tinfoil" at the start since the opening sample of "Faint" always cross-faded with it near the end of the Living Things cycle, and the band never got rid of that version of them.
