"Cold Case" Starts Season with All-Nirvana Episode

"Cold Case" Starts Season with All-Nirvana Episode

I've never been a big fan of "Cold Case" on CBS, but I do think the show uses music in a cool, unique way. Last year, the show set one entire episode to a soundtrack of Bob Dylan tunes, and this year, the show's season premiere will use Nirvana songs as the background.

It's fitting, given that the case the show's detectives will be re-opening is a murder that took place in 1994. The story of the episode, which airs Sept. 23, focuses on two teenagers who have been convicted of the murder of three 10-year-old boys, despite evidence that shows the real killer could still be at large. "Nirvana's music not only evokes the era when this case's killings took place but brings a starkness and poetry to the story that deeply enhances it," the show's executive producer, Veena Sud, said in a CBS press release.

The eight featured songs include all the major hits of Nirvana's career: "All Apologies," "Stay Away," "If You Must," "Lithium," "Drain You," "Heart Shaped Box," "Something in the Way" and "Come as You Are" (though I'm not sure if that's the order in which they'll appear in the episode). With this, Nirvana joins Dylan, Johnny Cash, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Tim McGraw and U2 as artists whose music has been showcased in full episodes of "Cold Case."

I love Cold Case.... It's unlike any other "cop" show on television right now.. I must give them credit on every episode they seem to pick the perfect music from that particular genre. I just wish that they would go on DVD.. Peace to all Honey

I'm not positive but I feel like they already used a Nirvana song....but it could have been a similar group. Anyway the episode was great and dealt with a teenager's suicide during the grunge 90s and featured a bunch of good music (but it was a while ago and I can't really remember).

I'm not really a Cold Case Fan but I just might have to watch that episode. I was 12 in 1994 and I thought that Nirvana was the "best thing ever"!
