GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING ROCK BAND LINKIN PARK TEAMS UP WITH "CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION"

Band's Hit Single, "Leave Out All The Rest," Opens, Closes and Is Uniquely Incorporated Into the Thematic Score of an Upcoming Episode of the #1 Scripted Series on Television

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21 - Grammy Award-winning rock band Linkin Park's new hit single, "Leave Out All The Rest," will be prominently featured in the episode of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION airing on Thursday, Nov. 6 (9:00-10:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This is the first time a television series has taken the melody of a rock song and incorporated it into the underlying score of an episode in such a unique fashion.

The episode opens and closes with - and is named after - "Leave Out All The Rest," the fifth single from Linkin Park's latest album, Minutes to Midnight, currently approaching six million worldwide sales. Elements of "Leave Out All The Rest" are also used throughout the episode to underline and score the building story of Gil Grissom (William Petersen) and his unresolved love for Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), who recently left the crime lab.

"We found the melody and lyrics of the song to work so well with our story, that we underscored Grissom's emotional journey with it," says Jason Alexander, music supervisor for CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION. "We've been long admirers of Linkin Park and it was wonderful for us to collaborate on something special like this."

"We have always been huge fans of Linkin Park," says Carol Mendelsohn, the show's executive producer. "They have an anthemic sound that's full of strength and simultaneous vulnerability. They were perfect for the show and the conflict within it."

In addition to "Leave Out All The Rest," "Minutes to Midnight" spawned four other top 10 hits ("Bleed It Out," "What I've Done," "Shadow of the Day," "Given Up") and, according to the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), earned Linkin Park the title of 2007's best-selling rock band. In other news, Linkin Park recently received an American Music Award nomination for "Favorite Artist - Alternative Rock Music." The band has also announced a November 25th release for "Road to Revolution," a special CD/DVD set featuring 18 of the group's biggest hits recorded live at the Milton Keynes National Bowl in Southeast England, during the sold-out European leg of this past summer's Project Revolution tour.
