"Foolin" is a 1983 single by British Hard rock band Def Leppard from their multi-platinum album Pyromania. When released as a single later that year, it reached #9 on the Mainstream Rock chart and #28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The popular Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is known for naming each episode after an 80s hit song, named an episode after this song. The song is playable in the music video game Rock Band 3.
The music video was directed by David Mallet. Shot in June 1983, at Ritz theatre, Elizabeth, NJ, USA. Aired on August 1983, it featured Billy Idol's then-girlfriend Perri Lister playing the harp with her eyes closed. On the video compilation Historia, the text commentary before this video states, "Indeed, a face without eyes," a pun on Idol's song "Eyes Without a Face".
