Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets was a 2001 album release by Gary Jules under the Sanctuary Records label. Despite the year of release, the album took a long time to reach the charts in both the UK and USA; it reached both the UK Top 40 and Billboard 200 charts in 2004. The highly popular Tears for Fears cover "Mad World," which was also featured on the Donnie Darko soundtrack and in the Gears of War trailer, is the last song listed on the album (although an untitled hidden track is actually the last song).
