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.
