Linkin Park will link up with forensic drama CSI to promote their new single "Leave Out All The Rest." The newest Minutes to Midnight single will feature prominently both in the opening scene and closing credits as well as throughout the episode. Plus, the song and episode share the same title. The addition of Linkin Park will break the series' diet of the Who, who soundtrack all three CSI credit sequences. "We have always been huge fans of Linkin Park," says executive producer Carol Mendelsohn. "They have an anthemic sound that's full of strength and simultaneous vulnerability. They were perfect for the show and the conflict within it." That conflict within, in this episode at least, revolves around "the building story of lead character Gil Grissom (William Petersen), who's departing the hit series, and his unresolved love with Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), who recently left the crime lab." The show will air November 6th.
