CBS' series 'Cold Case' will use as many as 8 songs from Nirvana in the first episode of the show's fifth season.
Nirvana still owns its legacy in music industry. The band's songs are going to be utilized in CBS crime drama series 'Cold Case' that will air its 5th season on September 23.
"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 told the Chicago Tribune.
As many as 8 tracks from the legendary band are going to be featured on the episode called 'Thrill Kill' which, according to Sud, is "about two seemingly nihilistic male teens who may have been falsely accused and convicted of murdering three 10-year-old boys."
The songs used are 'All Apologies,' 'Stay Away,' 'If You Must,' 'Lithium,' 'Drain You,' 'Something in the Way' and 'Heart Shaped Box.'
Nirvana's songs have previously been used in several TV series such as 'Lost' and 'Six Feet Under'. It was reported that 'CSI: Miami' was also interested in featuring some of the band's songs for a November 2006 episode. However, the show's producer later on felt that "it didn't work for the episode" and therefore aborted the plan.
