From indie California punks to mainstream rock 'n rollers whose latest album is available at your nearest convenience store (seriously), Green Day have certainly come a long way in their career, which has spanned more than two decades. From grimy basement gigs to selling out arenas worldwide to even conquering the Broadway stage (with the "American Idiot" production), what can they possibly do next? How about providing the soundtrack to a long-running crime procedural on network television? Um, okay.

CSI: NY Green Day

From indie California punks to mainstream rock 'n rollers whose latest album is available at your nearest convenience store (seriously), Green Day have certainly come a long way in their career, which has spanned more than two decades. From grimy basement gigs to selling out arenas worldwide to even conquering the Broadway stage (with the "American Idiot" production), what can they possibly do next? How about providing the soundtrack to a long-running crime procedural on network television? Um, okay.

The band has lent "CSI: NY" tunes from their new trio of albums ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre! for an upcoming episode. The plot will revolve around the capture of a shooter who injures Lindsay Monroe while attempting to pick off a political candidate. But the twist here is that the songs -- “Stop When The Red Lights Flash,” “Amy,” “Night Life,” “The Forgotten” and “Kill The DJ” -- will be used during a mostly dialogue-free first act.

 “My ultimate goal was to tell a story without dialogue, and Green Day’s music and lyrics beautifully accompanied the visuals making it a very special episode,” producer Pam Veasey said. All in all, a pretty interesting concept. So when your Dad asks what in God's name that godawful racket is and why the guys on "CSI: NY" aren't saying anything when the episode airs on October 19th, you can explain to him what the deal is.
